Circuit Court Judge Candidate Madonia's Petitions Challenged

A petition challenge in the race for a Sangamon County judgeship accuses one of the candidates of, quote, “a pattern of fraud” that shows “contemptuous disregard” for election law.


Those words come from Kent Gray… who is challenging the petitions of Associate Judge John “Mo” Madonia for the seat being vacated by Judge Leo Zappa, Junior.


Gray says Madonia’s petitions are invalid because he lists his address as Springfield, rather than Leland Grove… refers to the 7th Judicial “District” instead of the 7th “Circuit”… and turned in petitions that were not of uniform size.


Madonia tells the State Journal-Register that the claims are mere technicalities, and he does not believe he will be knocked off the ballot.
