Candidate, Under Pressure, Quits Senate Race in Illinois
By STEPHEN KINZER
CHICAGO, June 25 - Crippled by accusations about sex clubs and losing
support from his own party, Jack Ryan, the Republican Senate candidate
in Illinois, pulled out of the race on Friday, leaving Republicans
searching for a new face to defend a critical Senate seat.
"It's clear to me that a vigorous debate on the issues most likely could
not take place if I remain in the race," Mr. Ryan said in a statement to
reporters at his campaign headquarters. "What would take place, rather,
is a brutal, scorched-earth campaign - the kind of campaign that has
turned off so many voters, the kind of politics I refuse to play."
The candidacy of Mr. Ryan, 44, an investment banker turned teacher in
the inner city, imploded when a judge unsealed custody papers that
included statements by his former wife, the actress Jeri Ryan (she
played "7 of 9", a reformed Borg, on Startrek), saying he had taken her
to sex clubs and asked her to have public sex. Her accusations left
Republicans reeling in a race that represents one of the Democrats' top
chances to pick up a seat now held by a Republican, Peter G. Fitzgerald,
who is not seeking a second term.

Say judge got
a grip on himself
OKLAHOMA CITY - Giving new meaning to the phrase "if it please the
court," an Oklahoma judge allegedly masturbated and used a device for
enhancing erections on the bench while court was in session.
A court clerk also told state officials she once saw Judge Donald
Thompson shaving the area around his genitals with a disposable razor
while he was on the bench.
The stunning allegations were made in a petition from the state attorney
general, who is seeking to remove the randy jurist from the bench.
The formal complaint from Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson
charges that Thompson, 57, engaged in "conduct constituting an offense
involving moral turpitude in violation of the Oklahoma Constitution,"
Edmondson's spokesman said yesterday.
The Sapulpa District judge flatly denies the charges, his attorney Clark
Brewster said yesterday. He said the judge received a penis pump for his
50th birthday as a gag gift, which became a source of a running joke in
"The allegations are bizarre and preposterous," Brewster said.
"Recently, some members of local law enforcement that are upset with a
number of his rulings used this situation to embarrass and attack him."
