At one time, current Augusta State Court Judge David Watkins was a member of the Indigent De-fense Committee. He did not "own" the committee, was not its chairman, nor was he responsible for the day-to-day operations of that office.
Instead of trying to scrape up dirt on the judge, his opponents could put their time and money to better use by informing voters of their candidate's qualifications for this office. So far, I have not heard of any.
