Panhandling for Experience

The "FIN" has heard some interesting news with regards to Melina Kennedy. Word has it she is shopping around in other counties looking to be appointed as a special prosecutor to gain some experience.

For those of you who don't already know, Melina Kennedy is the Democratic candidate for Marion County prosecutor. She has been a lawyer for a few years but has never been a deputy prosecutor and has never tried a case, criminal or civil.

I think the fact that she is trying to gain some trial experience now months after she announced she was running for prosecutor is evidence to everyone that even SHE knows how unqualified she is for the position.

This then brings up an interesting ethical situation for her. Lawyers are governed ethically to never take a case that they are unqualified or unprepared to handle.

So, the "FIN" has two questions for you out there; (1) Would she be unethical in seeking a legal position she is wholly unprepared or qualified to hold? (2) Would you hire a person to be the head football coach of the Colts if they have never coached, or played football before?

1. yes
2. no

3. Does Melina know what she is running for, or is she suffering from side effects cause by Ambien?
