Brown: Farrington’s moral compass

I have not been active on Facebook for years so, I found it ironic when a few of Anthony Farrington’s Facebook “friends” pointed out the hypocrisy of his online moral compass and the recent posts made by him that further reveal the desperation of an unqualified, slick politician in his feeble attempt to become our elected district attorney.

Susan Krones continues to rack up her many endorsements, while Farrington makes excuses for not winning endorsements by saying he is somehow above politics. That does not explain why he has flip-flopped his registration three different times to three separate affiliations in attempts to further his selfish political aspirations.

Farrington makes numerous claims on social media and in his campaign literature that he will “fund the police” and, while this makes a cute bumper sticker slogan, one might ask why is it that no law enforcement organization or agency has stepped forward to support or endorse him?

I have previously challenged Farrington to name any criminal jury trials that he, as the attorney of record, has seen through to verdict. The challenge has gone unanswered. I am going to drop the bar even lower and try to make it easier for Farrington to be transparent. Mr. Farrington, can you name just ONE single criminal jury trial that you have completed?

If, as I and many others strongly suspect, Farrington has never actually done even one criminal jury trial, how exactly is he going to “take back our neighborhoods’ like his recycled campaign signs promise he will do. He is a civil attorney who handles divorces and car accidents and the like. Unless the neighborhood has been taken by an ex-spouse or an ambulance, one wonders how exactly he plans to get it back.

It seems obvious to me that Farrington’s moral compass is going south and the voters of Lake County should not let him take us with him.
