Welcome to Day Two of Early Voting!
I have to admit that I was in Brazos County all day yesterday so I didn't get to vote. I will remedy that this morning on the way to court.
Did you vote yesterday? If so, you can disregard the rest of this message. If not, perhaps you need some inspiration.
For today's inspiration, I take you back in time to a little over three years ago. A brand new Pat Lykos Administration had just taken over the D.A.'s Office and she was still trying to find some common ground with the prosecutors she now presided over.
Her first move?
Publicly eviscerating two highly respected and liked prosecutors on the front page of the Houston Chronicle.
As I'm sure you recall, both Mark and Rifi were immediately shown to have done absolutely nothing wrong like Lykos accused them of, but that never merited an apology from her.
Both men went on to accept prestigious jobs with the U.S. Attorney's Office, but their reputations took an undeserved hit as Lykos called them "negligent and incompetent" in the media. Lykos went on to use "negligent and incompetent" as the theme of her Administration for the next three and a half years.
So, today, as your motivation to go vote. Remember how Lykos treats her prosecutors and how many great prosecutors she has run off during her tenure.
Today is an opportunity to go run Lykos off.
