The first of these is rather bizarre. It says:
Claims: She is a "Criminal Law Attorney"
Truth: She is a Criminal Defense Attorney
Huh? The last I heard, a criminal law attorney was someone who practices criminal law. And it does seem that a criminal defense attorney practices criminal law. What other type of law would a criminal defense attorney practice?
It is true that Thistlethwaite did not specify that she is a defense attorney in the title she chose to appear below her name on the ballot. But she also did not in any way misrepresent herself in the title. I have no problem with Chris Mazzia pointing out that his opponent is a defense attorney. She even mentions on her websit that she worked in the Sonoma County Public Defender's office for ten years before going into private law practice. But I do not see why Mazzia needed to imply that she was misrepresenting herself in her ballot title.
Incidentally, I have been leaning toward voting for Mazzia. So I am not just trying to promote Thistlethwaite's campaign.
