Disgraced drunkard and Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg goes on trial tomorrow to determine if she’s fit to continue serving as the Travis County DA (regardless of what the outcome of her trial, the answer is a definitive Hell No!, she’s not fit).
Eight months after she was arrested for drunk driving, Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg will go to trial tomorrow. An out-of-county judge will hear the evidence concerning whether she is emotionally able to continue in office, and if she has an addiction.
Well, we know she’s not emotionally fit to continue in office based on 1) her abuse of power and mistreatment of the arresting officers, and 2) the fact that she’s a Liberal, which is severe emotional disorder in its own right.
As to the question of whether or not she has an addiction, the xxx old drunk went through 72 bottles of vodka from just one liquor store in a 15 month period.
As I wrote then, those 72 bottles of vodka from one Twin Liquors store don’t tell the whole tell of how bad of an addiction to alcohol this woman has:
- This excludes bottles that she paid for with cash.
- This excludes bottles that she purchased at stores other than Twin Liquors.
- This excludes drinks consumed while out at bars and restaurants or at the homes of her “friends.”
- This excludes bottles of vodka given to her as gifts (or bribes, ahem).
State District Court Judge David Peeples, who has handled several removal cases in South Texas, will rule in Lehmberg’s case after she waived her right to a jury trial. His decision could come by the end of the week. Judge Peeples was appointed by Gov. Rick Perry. IN case you’re wondering if Judge Peeples can be fair in this trial, even the far left-leaning Center for Public Policy Priorities think tank in Austin says, “he’s a judge that applies the law. He’s not driven by an ideology.”
