Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Bridget McCafferty had planned a fundraiser for tonight at The Harp.

Election season is well underway and McCafferty was looking to pad her campaign chest heading into November.

Of course, she's a little indisposed at the moment, being under arrest by the FBI and all.

McCafferty is charged with making rulings in her courtroom at the behest of Russo and Dimora in connection with cases involving contractors connected to the duo in the Cuyahoga County corruption probe.

(Incidentally, the money quote from McCafferty's website: "I believe being a judge is a way of ensuring dignity and justice for our community." And... whatever Jimmy and Frank want.)

Anyway, no one answered the phone at McCafferty's election headquarters, but a kindly worker at The Harp answered the phone and said the campaign fundraiser is off.

Too bad — they could have made it a bail fundraiser instead.
