Yesterday was a very strange day around the Harris County Criminal Justice Center.
The ADAs who had worked on Kelly Siegler's campaign were still shell-shocked over the results of the election.
Many of the members of the defense bar offered words of encouragement to the ADAs and told them that everything would be alright. The words of kindness meant a lot to them.
Not all defense attorneys were so kind. At least two that I know of took a morbid pleasure in trying to rub the ADA's noses in the election results, gleefully telling them that they would all be fired. I'm not real sure what ends those attorneys were trying to accomplish other than to give an exhibition on low class.
ADAs discussed scenarios under which they would stay within the Office.
Oddly enough, although shock and sadness permeated through the Office, the anger was only directed one way.
The name being discussed and cursed throughout the entirety of the day?
