I have to laugh my a$$ off to see Paul Bridges running for district judge. This man tried to make his career soon after law school (2001) as the prosecuting attorney for Benton county by prosecuting an innocent man for the charge of arson. He caused himself and the county much embarrassment after the "Not Guilty" verdict rendered by the jury after 55 minutes of deliberation, which he was fires as prosecutor the next day. The only thing I remember Bridges by is his statement in a sworn affidavit stating he is "slower and dumber than dirt." Good luck to the district if this buffoon (extremely stupid person) gets elected.
