Whoops! Democrat Judge Accidentally Resigns from Office in Texas

Published

on

A Harris County judge, who has been in office for less than three months, resigned without even knowing it.

By sharing his plans to run for the Supreme Court of Texas, Democrat Bill McLeod will have to resign from his position at the Harris County Civil Court Law Number Four per the Texas Constitution.

According to Article 16, Section 65 of the Texas constitution, judges of county courts at law who announce their candidacy for another office must automatically resign.

County Attorney Vince Ryan’s office will send this matter over to country commissioners in a meeting on April 8, 2019.

Despite receiving more than half of Harris County voters’ support in last election cycle, Judge McLeod could be on his way out of office thanks to his announcement.

Now Judge McLeod is scrambling to get supporters to help his cause.

A McLeod supporter, Daniel Cohen, said “Democracy, fairness, justice, the will of the people all of that is tied up in this decision by the (Harris County) commissioners.”

KHOU News legal analyst Gerald Treece pointed out that “the constitution also allows county commissioners, given charge over appointing replacements, authority to keep McLeod as a holdover until there is a special election.”

Cohen added, “I think that’s a perfectly legal option and (commissioners) should take it.”

McLeod, who’s already in hot water over his candidacy announcement, declined to be interviewed.

His supporters have continued coming to his defense.

Pro-McLeod supporter, Kandice Webber said, “Our judges are human.”

She continued, “This would not be the first time that a judge has made a mistake. I would beg the court to leave him where he is. This is where Houstonians want him. This is where Harris County wants him, and we made that very loud and clear at the ballot.”

This event does not bode well for the rule of law in Texas.

“Beto” O’Rourke’s campaign solidified a “blue wave” in Texas urban centers across the state, which saw numerous State House, Senate, and even court seats flip blue.

Should this trend continue, Texas could go the way of Florida when it comes to issues like gun control and gradually bow down to leftist pressure.

Many conservative and libertarian activists are starting to realize the importance of local elections and are preparing to make their presence felt down ballot in the 2020.

GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis Follows Democrat Orders, Locks Down Florida After Media Pressure Campaign

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statewide shelter order on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 in response to the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

“I’m going to be doing an executive order today directing all Floridians to limit movements and personal interactions outside the home to only those necessary,” he stated. “To obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities.”

DeSantis’s order will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and will last for 30 days.

If any “essential service” was missed in the initial executive order, the governor says it can be tacked on.

DeSantis claimed he consulted with the White House and had a conversation with President Donald Trump about the decision. He noted that the White House Wuhan Virus task force’s extended guidelines from Tuesday night shaped DeSantis’ decision, describing the president’s move a “national pause.”

“We’re going to be in this for another 30 days,” he declared. “At this point, even though there’s a lot of places in Florida that have very low infection rates, it makes sense to make this move now.”

DeSantis has taken advantage of this situation by pushing forward infrastructure programs. The Florida governor ordered that $2.1 billion in transportation projects be accelerated. These projects include the Howard Frankland bridge project in Tampa Bay.

Sadly, it appears that the Florida Governor has capitulated to Democrat demands to shut down the entire state, even though the Democrat cities infested with the disease are already on lock down. Thirteen left-wing members of Congress led by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lead a media campaign by signing a letter to the governor earlier this week calling for him to issue the order.

The Wuhan Virus saga demonstrates the unforeseen costs of globalization, where basic civil liberties have to be suspended due to the problems that globalist policies cause.

Mass migration and free trade come with lots of hidden costs and increase the likelihood of generalized crises like the Wuhan Virus pandemic to occur.
