I happened to hear District Attorney Amy Weirich on the radio this morning. She was on KWAM 990 discussing various issues in Memphis, including the successful mentoring program her office sponsors. She was well spoken, logical, calm and intelligent.
Compare that to this freak show:
When you consider that this man loves the spotlight and national publicity, it’s upsetting to think that he’d be pulling these stunts all the time were he to be elected DA.
Of course it was politically motivated. Why did he decide to “drop by” Juvenile Court on Monday afternoon? Nothing better to do? How did he find a client so fast? Why inject race into it by comparing himself to Dr. King and the civil rights movement? Judge Brown has certainly not suffered because he’s black. Otherwise he would never have gotten a network TV show.
It’s disturbing, too, that he is friends with Thaddeus Matthews. Remember how the former radio host abused Charlotte Bergman? Remember that little problem he had being indicted on three felony counts for posting on his Facebook page a photograph of female child under age 5 performing a sex act on an adult male? Here’s a sample of his demeanor to refresh your memory:
Is this the kind of person you want your DA to pal around with?
Matthews tells the Commercial Appeal that “People…are tired of the corruption in Amy Weirich’s office.” Corruption? Whenever a Democrat knows he’s guilty of something, that’s the very charge he throws against his opponent.
It works pretty well for them. Let’s hope it doesn’t this time.
