California judge censured for having sex with two women in his chambers easily wins reelection California Judge Scott Steiner won reelection even though he was censured for having sex with two women in his chambers. (Orange County) David Boroff NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, June 9, 2016, 10:14 AM The people of California have spoken. A Superior Court judge who was censured for having sex with two different women in his chambers easily won reelection on Tuesday. Scott Steiner toppled veteran prosecutor Karen Schatzle 56% to 44%, according to unofficial results from the county registrar of voters. The Orange County judge cruised to victory even though he had been disciplined in 2014 for the carnal indiscretions in his office. He was also reprimanded for not disqualifying himself from a case that included a close friend, the Los Angeles Times reported. California judges reprimanded for having sex at their offices "Engaging in sexual intercourse in the courthouse is the height of irresponsible and improper behavior by a judge," the Commission on Judicial Performance wrote, according to the newspaper. Both women had formerly been students of his at Chapman University law school in California, the newspaper reported. One of the women worked as his intern, and the other was a practicing lawyer. Judge Steiner wrote a recommendation for the intern for a position in the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, but she did not make it past the first interview. Karen Schatzle was defeated by Steiner in Tuesday's election. (Handout) Steiner then questioned the DA's office as to why she did not get a second interview, according to the Los Angeles Times, and did not like the answer. The judge later admitted his mistakes, and his opponent pounded on them during the campaign. "Scott Steiner has made a mockery of what our community expects of our Judiciary," she wrote on her website. "I feel strongly that the public should be made aware, and that integrity be restored to his position. His actions not only violated the Judicial Canons that he took an oath to uphold, but betrayed the people he vowed to serve.” Steiner, who has been a Superior Court judge since 2011, said he was "humbled by all of the encouragement" he has received. "It has been an honor working for the people of Orange County," Judge Steiner wrote on Facebook. "Thank you for supporting me in my efforts to protect victims' rights. With the will of the voters, I will continue my work as a Judge of the Orange County Superior Court for a second term."
