Judge not, lest ye shall be judged.

The story neglected to mention a party affiliation. Normally if it's a Republican the press will mention it in the first paragraph. Odds are, I conclude, that he's a Democrat.

It took me about 30 seconds to google up several references to the "allegedly" drunk judge's party affiliation. Same as Teddy Kennedy's. http://www.dailygazette.net/standard/ShowStoryTemplate.asp?Path=SCH/2012/10/19&ID=Ar01205&Section=Local_News "State police arrested a downstate Supreme Court justice and prominent Brooklyn Democrat on drunken driving charges after he was stopped for allegedly driving aggressively on the Northway late Wednesday afternoon.
