Your Friday Dose of Irony [UPDATED]
We've all had a good laugh at Gary Polland's hypocrisy in criticizing Republican candidates who take court appointments to do criminal defense when he brought in over $400,000 in appointments last year. Now, we can also have a laugh at Jared Woodfill who has joined the Juvenile or Family Court appointments list, as well.
Both Woodfill and Polland have violently opposed the creation and continued existence of the Public Defenders' Office, and now you know why.
They seem to be a little worried that the more cases the PD's Office gets, the less money there will be to go around for them. If the PD's Office continues to thrive, Woodfill might even be forced to sell his house in River Oaks.
[UPDATE: Several people (who are apparently in the know) have pointed out that Woodfill is not doing appointments through the juvenile courts, but as ad litem through the Family Courts. If the distinction of what type of appointments Mr. Woodfill is taking matters to you, this is my notice of that distinction. Either way, he's still taking appointments.]
