Infamous Texting Judge Announces Run For District Attorney

COKER1You may recall the scandalous story of Elizabeth Coker, a Texas judge who was busted texting prosecutors and coaching them what to say in her courtroom.  Coker resignation became effective on December 6. Just two days later, she announced her run for District Attorney on Facebook. Coker said that she has seen the need for improvement in the office of the Distict Attorney “first-hand.”

Via Raw Story:

Coker resigned ahead of a State Commission on Judicial Conduct investigation into text messages and other improper ex parte communications and meetings with prosecutors in the Polk County District Attorney’s Office, the San Jacinto County District Attorney, and certain defense attorneys regarding various cases pending in her court.

The commission noted that she “allegedly exhibited a bias in favor of certain attorneys and a prejudice against others in both her judicial rulings and her court appointments.” Investigators also expressed concerns that Coker “discussed the Commission’s investigation and [her] written responses to the investigation with a material witness prior to that witness’ testimony before the Commission in an apparent attempt to influence that witness, and that the judge may not have been candid and truthful in her testimony before the Commission when questioned about her contact with the witness.”

    This woman is going to go far in Government Service. We will be plagued by the name Coker for decades to come, and she may well Replace Anne Coulter as the Grand Maven of Arch-Neo-Cons.
    I wonder if anyone has checked to see if there was a sur-name change in her family shortly after WWII, or if her family served in the Roosevelt/Truman era State Department. I say this because a strange desire to goose step just came over me, and I had not felt that before during this lifetime.
