Alan Bernstein let me know in the comments section of "Balls of Steel?" that after further reflection that Pat Lykos (hours later) decided to make a stand and state that Rosenthal should resign (like Jim said first, and Kelly did yesterday).
Here's the quote:
"It is interesting that Kelly Siegler has been part of the district attorney's office working side by side with Chuck Rosenthal for years, and now when Mr. Rosenthal is a political liability, she tries to separate herself from him and demand his resignation," Lykos said. "It is political theatrics and skilled tactics."
There are a couple of things funny about this statement.
Funny Thing # 1 - Does Lykos really think that Kelly just realized yesterday that Chuck was a political liability?!?!
Funny Thing # 2 - If Kelly's "demand" for Chuck's resignation was such a political no-brainer, then why did Lykos have to: a) leave the functiion after it was over, b) go meet with her political consultant; c) be told that denouncing Rosenthal would be a good thing with the voters; and then, and only then d) decide that she would agree?
Funny Thing # 3 - "It's political theatrics and skilled tactics." Um, did Kelly step onto your turf with that one Judge? You, of all people, calling somebody out for political theatrics?
You gotta be kidding me.
Again, Mr. Bernstein, thanks for the article, and thanks for letting me know about the change.
I'm still waiting on that yarmulke article on Judge Lykos, though.
