Under the guise of not being a partisan hack, of being a truly non-partisan prosecutor, the biased media and Al Franken proclaim that Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle (D) can't be biased against conservatives because he has prosecuted more democrats than republicans. What a fact, to Al Franken it is a slam-dunk, to borrow a phrase.
What the big fat liar omits is another fact, there weren't any republicans in power in Texas politics 20 - 30 years ago. Democrats held virtually all positions of government in Texas from the top down. In Ronnie Earle's tenure, the democrats he was after then were conservative democrats who didn't kowtow to the democrat machine of the day, of which Ronnie Earle was and still is a major player. Those democrats were later known as Reagan democrats.
Having witnessed the fall of democrat leadership all over Texas further explains Ronnie Earle's motivation which all but the lemmings can see. He went after 12 democrats and 3 republicans equals 15 conservatives. Not a partisan hack? Right.
