Summary

Incumbent. He was head of the United States Justice Foundation (1979-2012), which has been active in fighting immigrant and same-sex marriage rights and in pursuing "birther" claims against Obama. Kreep was been censured by the nonpartisan California Commission on Judicial Performance for campaign violations in 2012, and for bias, sexual harassment, and abuse of authority (among other things) in office. Rated as "lacking qualifications" by the San Diego Bar Association.

Analysis

The differences don’t get much clearer than this.
