Moon Withdraws From Prosecutor Race

It’s official.

Clark County Prosecutor John Moon, who served eight terms as Associate Circuit Judge before becoming Prosecutor, has withdrawn from the race.  As of now, his opponent, Republican Holly Conger, will be the only candidate on the ballot in November.

Moon cited financial considerations in his decision, weighing the costs of continuing in the position against a possible retirement or other business venture.

    Hm, or could it be other reasons?

    “Formal disciplinary orders and findings can be obtained from the Supreme
    Court Clerk’s Office. Feb. 24, 1998 #80541 and June 25, 2002 #84474.” ~ in an email from Jim Smith of the Commission on Retirement, Removal and Discipline of Judges. However, this does not explain why he had to step down as a judge – but I have sent out queries as to why he was allowed to be a prosecutor.

    Also, I wrote a letter to State Auditor Tom Schweich just this past Sunday about why it would be a good idea to assign a special prosecutor to Mary Jones’ case; if she hasn’t gone through the rounds already we’ll see if this happens.

    And many other things… the public deserves the right to know!
