Like if they answer something it is going to be the truth.
When it comes to politics and positions like this, everyone says whatever they have to say, in order to get the chair.
Aint that the case, in every single country after all?

of course ... you're absolutely right ... if the truth interferes with a career then you have to lie .... and it was already many times ... and there will be many more times ... such is life .... and nothing will change .. .. never .... I have not seen a single example that was so

here it is not clear to me ... Is the game something that is bad? .... something vicious? ..... and this can not be in public office? .... it seems to me that this is wrong ... although if the game is delaying and interfering with the work, it is certainly very wrong .... and if this hobby is all ok

Politicians are people of all kinds, around the world, not only in America. If we had an honest world with honest politicians, this gambler he did not have to go into politics. These people who have problems with gambling. drugs etc... they should not be left in public offices or in politics, because they are prone to corruption.

He is a judge, not a poltician. Altough in some cases both kinds are directly electable in the USA. And these comitees are working to run through every record he produced both as a judge and a private citizen - of course they will find something.

Hi you are absolutely right politicians to get a charge often lie (except in Venezuela where they have all the power and they do not need to lie), but I completely agree with the comment of a colleague, I do not know what has to do your poker hobby, craps or any casino game with the work that he intends to take, as long as he is honest and has no direct influence on his decisions, he can do whatever he wants with his life, do not you think?

You are right Bowie1984 but is the same thing, from the point of view of the fact that he should not get into that function, because it does not matter if he is a politician or a judge. A man who is asked, if he had debts of $60,000 to $200,000 in 2016, does not have the right to get a politician or a judge. Is a man of no moral value. Is a risky gambler for these functions.

He played at a country club and racked up all the money he owed there - so it's not like he borrowed money from some mobster on the street and let the vig ran up over 200k. I mean yeah, he is not a morality chapion but neither does the rest of the people on the US Supreme Court.

Thats what politics is all about. Nothing that has to do with common sense at the end.
If it suits their agenda, they will do what is necessary.
Even if it something they dont agree with, in the first place.

Legal in some states, illegal in others.Taxes are involved. along with the casinos in these states.
The ones with more power, money and support, pass the laws they want.

Yes i too think it is situation where some politicians wqnt to create dome negative situation about candidate so they try to make any bad information where there is nothing bad too. You can go to bar and then they say you like to drink very much, you go to church they say you supporting on religion and other things

Neither of those would disqualify you from a judiciary race but apparently an outstanding gambling debt could.

Most people in this world have their many vices. It's hard to opt for people in state positions, if you do not know who they are or what kind of life they have. However, life on this planet is driven by many people without the right judgment. If we look in general, we see these things.

Well for such an important position should know everything about the postulate, but sometimes exaggerate, if you have time to play this right, clear debts and all that if it should be clarified
