When asked what mistakes they made during the campaign, Leitner brought a lot of good-natured laughs by addressing his "no peremptory challenges" bombshell. Luckily you didn't throw out that "no cross-examination allowed" policy, Jim. Just kidding.
The really humorous moment to me occurred when Lykos was called upon to address her mistake.
In true political fashion, Lykos wouldn't acknowledge any mistakes on her part other than, gosh- darnit, just working too dang hard.
Bless her heart. She then went on to elaborate that sometimes she and her staff sometimes worked as late as . . . (gasp) . . . 9 p.m!
For those prosecutors who have routinely worked late into the night, taken call-outs to crime scenes in the middle of the night, or worked those God-forsaken midnight to eight intake shifts, the idea of making sure you were closed for business at 9 p.m. is hysterical.
Come on, Pat. Don't you know that crime never sleeps?!
Are you really campaigning on the slogan that you vow to be more lazy in the future?
That's awesome. Can the ADAs in your theoretical regime look forward to "nap time" under your reign?
One of my earlier posters when this blog first started addressed the issue of Lykos' age as a consideration. At the time, I didn't really think much of it.
Now, I'm kind of reconsidering.
