The Impartial Judge

 The judge donated money - a tiny amount, $35, but in plain violation of a rule prohibiting New York judges from making political donations of any kind - to a pro-Biden, anti-Trump political operation, including funds that the judge earmarked for 'resisting the Republican Party and Donald Trump's radical right-wing legacy.' Would folks have been just fine with the judge staying on the case if he had donated a couple bucks to 'Re-elect Donald Trump, MAGA forever!'? Absolutely not.
