Court Administrator: I Do What the Judge Tells Me, Even Break the Law

July 21, 2010:  A shocking recording of Dakota County Senior Court Administrator, Edie Stanke reveals corruption in Dakota County. Though this video speaks to the experience of one father, what is revealed here affects all families involved in Dakota County, and exposes widespread patterns of corruption being reported as happening in family courts across the United States, and internationally as well.

According to Stanke, she does whatever Judge Michael Mayer asks her to do, even if she is asked to break the law. Why? Stanke says “because I want my paycheck“.  

Corruption occurs when laws are broken, and the powers of government are abused to further personal interests or political agendas. When corrupt people surround themselves with other dishonest, unethical and similarly corrupt people, our society’s institutions – even our court system – becomes lawless.

A lawless court system will prey upon, and victimize law abiding citizens, even families and children. Human lives are only valuable based on their worth in terms of the incentives of the corrupt players – money, power, political influence, bribes, etc are generated from the daily operations of a court system that no longer functions based on rule of law but instead, has gone rogue.

Society now seeing the tragic result of this – when children are placed in the custody of abusive or unfit parents, and then are subjected to further abuse. Courts are enforcing orders that alienate children from their parents, many children are taken under unjust circumstances and never see their parent again. There are cases in family court that go on for years, children spend their whole childhood in upheaval and uncertainty while the court system profits at destroying families. There are escalated instances of domestic violence, sometimes resulting in murder. Families are being financially devastated, and brought to ruin by the abuse of powers happening in the family court system. In all of this, it is almost impossible to correct or overturn a court decision, even if that ruling is clearly erroneous or has violated law. When the system departs from justice, rulings are no longer based on law but instead are assessed in terms of how the players have been bought and sold.
