    Anyone who believes that another family should suffer through this tragedy forced by politicians is really sick. The reason I cannot stomach so much of the political arena is that although they scream for less intrusion they can’t stop peeking into a woman’s personal choices and won’t stay out of gut wrenching personal family decisions. A little moderation goes a long way.

    Powerful article, harsh as it is, the timing is accurate since our district judge position effects people’s lives. We as taxpayers have a duty to be well educated on the candidates and choose wisely. The company these candidates share time with, and in Ms. Hutton’s case much more, does play a role in their ethics and integrity. Shameful.

    I did some checking, and even Mr. Taylor is in a public office and has been on and off again several times serving the Colleyville city council. Troubling.

    Thank you for sharing this story, definitely played a role in my vote this week.

    There are many things wrong with this judgeship campaign where Traci Hutton is concerned. First of all, the family of Marlise Munoz needs to be able to heal and put this awful situation behind them and for it to be used for political gain is beyond reprehensible. Then I would like to know what mother in her right mind uses her child in the way Tracy Hutton allegedly used her daughter? No one I know! Traci Hutton also proposes to represent “family values” and it appears to me, no part of Traci Hutton’s campaign shows that she holds any type of family values to be important. She also labels another judge a “liberal” just because there is a difference of opinion in a case where the judge was privy to what was going on in this heart wrenching satiation. The decision making judge had knowledge of medical information, family dynamics and the law whereas Ms Hutton had no intimate knowledge of what was truly going on. . Because he made a decision that does not agree with Ms Hutton’s way of thinking does not make him “liberal,” as she labels him!

    I guess the people spoke. Thank goodness we still have a standard for Judges in office. Ms. Hutton, your family values won’t be in Tarrant County Court!
