"For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful
Have opened against me;
They have spoken against me with a lying tongue."
Following yesterday's news about the grotesquely awful Jana Duty, it looks like the WillCo good ol' boy network is (to its credit) piling on:
Read the whole thing here.GEORGETOWN — Williamson County business leaders stood outside the county courthouse Wednesday morning to deliver an ultimatum to District Attorney Jana Duty: resign or be forced out.“I, along with other community leaders, demand that Jana Duty step down and resign her position as district attorney of Williamson County by sunset this Friday,” said Jim Schwertner, owner of Schwertner Farms, a cattle trading enterprise.
“If she does not, we will petition the court to have her removed as district attorney of Williamson County,” he said.
A group of about 20 people stood on the courthouse steps to show their support for Schwertner’s position.
Schwertner said he was asking for Duty’s resignation because of the recent sanction against her by the State Bar of Texas and also because she wasn’t showing up to work.
He said that Duty “admitted she was not truthful in statements she made to others, she admitted to violating a court order, she admitted to being dishonest and deceitful, and she admitted again knowingly making false statements to judges with reckless disregard for the truth.”
The State Bar put Duty on probation for 18 months beginning June 1 for unprofessional conduct.

Bottom Line: Couldn't happen to a nicer 'human being'; we almost hope they're forced to sue for no other reason than to give her a couple hundred grand in legal bills on the way out the door....
