A Soft Landing for Leitner Revisited

And speaking of Jim Leitner, apparently he just can't break away from Harris County.

An item on the Commissioners' Agenda for the Harris County Sheriff's Office for Tuesday is as follows:

Wow.  That's some pretty nice money there, Jim.  I'm guessing this cushy contract won't prohibit him from working on other cases as well.

No word yet on whether or not they will give him a badge to wear on his belt.

What a joke on the tax payer. Sheriff Garcia will come to regret this decision. This deal was worked out some months ago. I'd hate to think I was paying that kind of money for the bad advice he'll be getting. The only good thing about it is Leitner is no longer screwing up the DA's Office.

Shame on you Adrian.

I can't wrap my brain around this, after Garcia fought so hard for re-election. Patsy must be more politically savvy than I thought, even in her defeat.

I am amusing myself thinking about the advice Leitner might give, given how many things this administration has handled with singular aplomb.

I'm wondering if Steve Clappart will have a job there when he's released by Anderson in a couple of weeks. I'm sure Leitner will need his investigator to continue trying to get David Temple a new trial.

Anon 3:27 - I'm sorry, the public records must be wrong because Don Hooper recently made it clear that Rachel had did not own his blog.

Anon 12:54am,

Clappart might have been a good cop at one time but his association with Leitner has sealed his fate.

There goes the Sheriff's Department? It was gone the day Adrian took office. What a joke he has been. And then hiring convicted felons through ACORN to go out and campaign for him? Just further proof. Adrian doesn't belong in law enforcement, much less running the Sheriff's Department...

Clappart sold his soul. Can't trust a man with no integrity

Garcia should have better sense. He's paying Leitner to get Temple out of prison. wonder how much tricky Dick contributed to his campaign fund?

Please release this story to the Chronicle. Although, fewer people are reading the Chronicle and it unquestionably has lost much of its influence, this is still a good story.
If not the Chron, surely there are other news outlets that would love this story.
I don't blame Garcia, I blame the Comish's for not asking more questions. Consulting on what?
What a complete waste of money.

Another huge waste of money by Garcia. Seems he keeps hiring the leftovers of those individuals that lose. He did the same thing with several of the staff from Sylvia Garcia.

So when does the Transistion Team arrive at HCDAO and start trying reassemble the office? If I recall correctly, Leitner came in the last week of November 2008.

I'm sure Lykos will just love seeing the power pried out of her grimy little hands. Her transition team was given full access to office records. I'd be surprised if she is so collegial.

She'll be a pain until the very last minute....

wazzup wit dis?

Psstt, Lykos wants to be TAG Director. She feels she has the perfect qualifications: former criminal Judge; Criminal Justice Policy Advisor to Eckels & Emmett and; (soon to be) former Harris County District Attorney.

Stay tuned folks.

A little time in jail would round out her resume very nicely.

That badge on his belt was ridiculously stupid.
