Immediately on the heels of Stephen St. Martin's resignation on Friday, the Lykos Administration received yet another resignation from a Senior Felony Chief Prosecutor this morning.
Chief Prosecutor for the 230th District Court, George Weissfisch turned in his two weeks notice today.
George was very much a shining star at the District Attorney's Office from the moment he arrived there. Most prosecutors when they first begin at the Office take several months if not years developing their trial skills, and their win-loss ratios often reflect that. It's not unusual for very talented prosecutors to come out of misdemeanor with a 50% success rate, just due to the level of inexperience and the nature of their cases.
George defied those odds and (if I recall correctly) was undefeated for quite some time in his stint as a baby prosecutor.
He continued to impress people at high levels as he worked his way through the Office. Ultimately, George's reputation as a trial attorney became so impressive that he was promoted to Felony Chief waaaaay ahead of many more senior prosecutors (including myself).
I wish George the best of luck in his new endeavors, but for the second time in two business days, another good chief has decided not to continue working with the Gang Who Couldn't Shoot Straight.
That makes the total of four felony chiefs who have quit rather than work with Lykos in her first four months of Office.
And folks, I think we are just looking at the tip of the iceberg here.
