I am also a member of the domestic violence provider community. It should be brought to the public's attention that Mr. Cadelore does not appear to currently function under his own "ABC's" so there is little good faith belief from those of us who have had the displeasure of working with him and his center, that he will divorce himself from his "values" if elected to the bench.
Perhaps the most diplorable incident I can recall in my years as a domestic violence shelter provider came in receiving a subpoena from Mr. Candelore's office to a victim at our confidential address. The gentleman providing the document service was told to drop the paperwork in front of any other client in front of reception in the hopes they would pick it up, therefore, our resident would be considered served. Additionally the instructions "THIS IS A WOMEN'S DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER" were written across the subpoena. Not only is this disgusting, it's illegal to disclose the location of a safehouse. Mr. Candelore and his men's rights group are willing to go to any extreme to advance their agenda.
The worst part about their unbelievable tactics, is that their "nonprofit" front takes thousands of dollars per case from unsuspecting men - many of whom are suffering from severe emotional and mental disorders and addiction issues. Mr. Candelore can espose his values and beliefs that 50/50 custody is the most appropriate solution for families, but believe me when I say he isn't representing your family once that retainer has run out.
Mr. Candelore is just bad news for San Diego. Bad news for our judicial system and bad news for San Diego families.
