Comment[edit]

Does anyone have another source for the controversy? Right now everything I've found relies on Porter's column. —Ashley Y 03:55, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Never mind, I found the PBA statement. —Ashley Y 22:45, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Should this page even exist when it's no more than a rehash of the politically-sensitive media-storm. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.69.192.196 (talk) 16:20, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

She is a judge whose comments have drawn national attention. It would be impossible to describe the circumstances of her notability without summarizing, or "rehashing", the the many articles that have been written. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.13.150.236 (talk) 22:37, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
To correct what I said above, it has actually drawn international attention.Scottsman.com article —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.13.150.236 (talk) 22:46, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

There was a vote to retain her as a judge yesterday. Does anyone know if she won? I can't find anything online. 207.245.124.66 19:52, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

The vote was to retain her – [1] [2]. She won with something like a 2/3 "Yes" vote. The results were similar for all 5 of the other sitting judges who were up for reelection. The publicity and the "Deny Deni" campaign clearly had a slight effect – Deni actually won by a narrower margin than any of the other judges. The newspapers are chalking the win up to voter apathy and complete lack of awareness of the issue.
There's a "Deny Deni" blog-in right now over at the sex worker blog, Bound, Not Gagged. Obviously, a blog can't be used as an article source, but some of the posts have pointers to further information that may be useful.
I'll add more to the article about the "Deny Deni" campaign and about the Deni retention vote shortly. Iamcuriousblue 23:39, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
