Fresh on the heels of learning that judicial candidate Marcia Del Rey owns, through her family "sex themed hotels" where there is sex, prostitution and perhaps human trafficking, comes news that Del Rey has been falsely telling people that she was an Assistant State Attorney when in fact she was an intern in the DV division for a month, whereupon she resigned- AFTER BEING FIRED FOR NOT SHOWING UP- one month after starting.
The Herald and Ovalle have the disgusting facts here.
And her resignation was classic:
“Had I been informed by the state of the fact that being an assistant state attorney required working every evening until 11 p.m. and every weekend, all day long Saturday and Sunday, I would not have committed to the position,” she wrote
Ahh, the truth will always out.
Poorecito. No wonder she wants to be a judge. Prosecutors' hours are not for her. But two hour lunches and afternoons off with benes and a retirement package sounds just about right.
Her candidacy is an insult to every prosecutor and PD working long hours for no thanks and little pay.
And we call upon the Bar to discipline Del Rey for lying about being a prosecutor. It's akin to lying about being a wounded war veteran. And it's an insult to every hard working prosecutor who didn't quit under the strain of long hours and hard work.
Del Rey couldn't hack it for one month as an intern? She can't hold the robes of Rodney Smith who came from the inner city of Miami and worked those same hours as a prosecutor before becoming a judge AND had to ride the bus to work because he couldn't afford a car after getting out of law school.
This woman's life story is an insult to the bench and public service and her quitting after one month at the SAO because she was "tricked" into working long hours is an insult and outrage to every hardworking prosecutor, PD, and yes, even judges.
See you in court where we can tell you we would not stand up in the unfortunate eventuality of her becoming a judge.
