#TXLEGE: Past few days illustrate EXACTLY why Sullivan left Austin

"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 5:10

We've said our piece about the stupidity of the Charlie Geren campaign's criminal complaint against Michael Quinn Sullivan.  It's laughably absurd.  But, in a discussion with the Texas Monitor about the Geren campaign's action, Sullivan makes a point that deserves further elaboration:
It only amplifies what we’ve been saying all along about the weaponizing of the criminal justice system in Travis County.

A few years back, during a previous round of politicized intimidation, Michael Quinn Sullivan moved to Denton county specifically to escape the jurisdiction of the Travis County DA and the hack Democrat judges in Travis County.

With another frivolous complaint percolating in the Travis County DA, it would seem that Sullivan's original motivation to leave town has been vindicated (again).

To be certain: Given his professional responsibilities, Sullivan does come through town from time to time (usually towards the end of legislative sessions and prior to elections).  But he doesn't live here.  Anybody who actually does live here can tell you that.

Bottom Line:  Adding yet another featherbrained political prosecution to the mix does nothing but confirm everything Michael Quinn Sullivan has ever said about the Travis County DA and the hack judges in this town.
