Verdict Is In on Supervisor Roth, but Voters Should Have Final Say

There's something happening here. What it is isn't exactly clear. But it is clear that the editorial calling for Supervisor Don R. Roth's resignation was a disgrace.

In the editorial, The Times set itself up as prosecutor, judge and jury--and when you don't get the verdict you want--you resort to low, personal attacks on his lifestyle.

How sad. The Times contempt for the popular 4th District supervisor has been evident in the past.

And now that you have failed to discredit him with unsubstantiated charges in news columns, you are maligning him with editorial slams. How sad for The Times. How sad for Orange County.
