Political deals do not get dirtier and more corrupt than this.
Even for the Democratic Party, which is the dirtiest and most corrupt party in American history, this example of cronyism sinks to a new low and stinks – literally.
The New York Post reported:
Members of the all-Democratic City Council in suburban White Plains rewarded their party’s well-connected chairwoman with a plum six-figure judicial seat — even though she was too sickly to work, critics charge.
City Judge Elizabeth Shollenberger — who suffers from a digestive disorder and morbid obesity, among other ailments — was unable to climb the three steps to her courtroom bench, even with the help of a specially installed railing, sources said.
City Judicial Review Committee member Mark Elliott has publicly accused Mayor Tom Roach of making sure “the fix was in” for the judge, who had been his campaign treasurer.
The committee rejected the Yale Law School grad, 61, for appointment to the post.
But she got the job anyway, and promptly went on the first of several medical leaves just a week after being sworn in to her $175,500-a-year job.
“She would come in and we would see the diarrhea running down her leg and to the floor,” one court worker said. “She would soil the chair and then ask for a new one.”
Another court worker said Shollenberger astounded staffers by acting with “complete arrogance” following the awful accidents.
“She would just say, ‘There is a mess over there. I think someone should clean it up,’ ” the source said.

This is how Democrats choose to spend your tax dollars that you worked hard to earn.
