Facebook "Like" Raises Endorsement Questions for Kansas Judge

AUGUSTA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas judge has caused a stir by doing something millions of people do every day — "liking" a post on a Facebook page. Several weeks ago, Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet asked people to click the "like" button on his campaign Facebook page. District Judge Jan Satterfield, a former Butler County prosecutor, was one of a few dozen people who did so. The Augusta Gazette reports that Satterfield's click caught the attention of Lee White, a former Butler County resident now living in California. White has filed a complaint with the Kansas Commission of Judicial Qualifications. White says Satterfield's action amounts to a public endorsement of the sheriff. Satterfield says she's not aware of the complaint and has never endorsed any candidate.
