    it is interesting that an attorney in Brenham Tx was arrested for DWI with a child, and yet that case has not gone to trial in over 20 months. I can only assume that Ms, Lehmberg in Brazos Cty didn't have enough connections as this attorney in Brenham. We are still waiting for this attorney to be brought to justice. Interesting also is that there are regular citizens in Washington Cty who have had DWI with child, and those cases have already gone to trial. WHY? DA in Brazos Cty most likely was not park of the "movers and Shakers" club.

    Come on, now! Lehmberg needs to go peaceably, if they are to restore faith, respect, and integrity to the Travis County DA's office. There are many professions where a charge of DWI, let alone a plea of guilty, would mean immediate termination and removal from office. Lehmberg has deeply offended and violated the public trust, and must be removed. Lehmberg is held to a higher moral standard as Travis County's top criminal prosecutor. Lehmberg was elected to serve and protect the public by prosecuting DWI offenders, not by asking for sympathy because she has now joined the ranks of DWI offenders!! The public trust must be restored, as Lehmberg has demonstrated that she does not possess the moral character and demeanor to hold the office in which she was elected. Sure, Lehmberg made a mistake and/or had a lapse in judgment. However, Lehmberg must pay for her transgressions just like anyone other offender. Unfortunately for Lehmberg, she had more to lose than the ordinary citizen, that is why her penalty is greater. Lehmberg must be removed from office, if she refuses to resign. Just ask MADD (Mother's Against Drunk Drivers) whether or not Lehmberg's drunk driving should be forgiven and Lehmberg should retain her position of public trust as prosecutor of DWI offenders!
