Liberty County Democrat Judge, Candidate Residence
(No one at trailer)
When cornered by the media about the residency of their County Judge candidate, Democratic Party leadership played what they perceived to be their trump card. Democrats declared that since Democratic Party County Chairman Nancy Archer and the County Executive Committee are standing by their Democratic primary winner for County Judge, Mr. Ken Morrison, little else matters. “It is kind of like you always heard, a grand jury can indict a ham sandwich”, one of Archer’s Executive Committee explained (referring to and pointing with both hands to Morrison) he is our ham sandwich.”
Ken Morrison may indeed be found to be a legal resident of Liberty County as far as his eligibility to run for office is concerned, but the attitude expressed by the party that has dominated our county politics has been revealed. First they need to realize it is wrong for any grand jury to take the attitude that they have adopted. A grand jury should indict people based on the facts, not based on a political vendetta, and not based on the idea that they can get away with almost anything or from the pressure of a corrupt district attorney. Indicting anyone they want, even a “ham sandwich”, does not serve the public well.
Democrats have decided, according to their own Executive Committee, to place their “ham sandwich” on the ballot unless someone successfully sues to invalidate him. What a startling admission of the way these people wield the power the people of Liberty County have entrusted them with. Isn’t the message here something like this: “Can we do this and nobody can stop us unless they are willing to spend some money and can find a court to overrule us?”
This debate is all within Democratic Party circles and the Republican Party should be more than happy to face either Phil Fitzgerald with the ethical questions circling his head like buzzards or Ken Morrison who seems like he is very excited to go before voters as the Nancy Archer’s “ham sandwich”. Unfortunately, Republicans better brace themselves. To elect Ken Morrison and some of the other ham sandwiches they have nominated may mean a whole lot of negative campaigning. The word on the street is that the sour cheese for this ham sandwich could be ex-defeated Liberty County Sheriff, Greg Arthur. Time will tell…
After all, everyone knows where ham sandwiches come from.
