DETROIT — A suspended Wayne County judge has filed for re-election while the Michigan Supreme Court decides whether to remove him office for an affair with a woman who appeared in his court.
State election officials say Wade McCree has filed an affidavit to run for another six-year term in 2014.
McCree has been suspended without pay for more than a year. He admits having an extramarital affair with a woman in a child support case. Their trysts occurred inside McCree's courthouse office.
Despite the affair, McCree didn't immediately excuse himself from the case. Even his attorney, Brian Einhorn, has called McCree's relationship "stupid."
The Judicial Tenure Commission wants the Supreme Court to remove McCree from office and keep him off the bench for six years if he's re-elected.
