A Statement from
Chancellor Albert S. Dandridge III

The daily dribs and drabs from various public figures regarding "Porngate" are corrosive and have contributed to the erosion of public confidence in our justice system. This must come to an end. Slowly, but surely, the judiciary, the attorney general's office and other prosecutors have come under attack. The stakes are high for the individuals involved. However, the stakes are even higher for the citizens of this Commonwealth who deserve a Supreme Court and Judicial Conduct Board whose credibility is beyond reproach.

I join with others in the press, judiciary and members of the bar in calling for an independent investigation to once and for all tell us the full unvarnished truth of what happened, when it happened and who was involved. Only when there is a full accounting of all the facts can we take necessary action to restore the public's trust in our justice system.


Albert S. Dandridge III
