McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna has begun dismissing or recusing himself from Twin Peaks prosecutions en masse.
Reyna's Big Fold came on the eve of a hearing in which his current and former employees would have testified about pay-for-play dismissals, drug abuse, an illegal gambling ring, and an FBI corruption investigation supposedly involving Reyna-- sworn allegations which he insists (outside of court) are "fake news."
Reyna's assistants had previously delayed the hearing by filing a bizarre 11th-hour motion to recuse Judge Ralph Strother, only a few months after they had vigorously opposed a defense motion to do the same in another biker trial.
Of course, McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna adamantly denies all allegations against him (but not under oath) and insists that the timing is a coincidence, despite the appearance that he is desperate to avoid any scrutiny of his behavior until after the primary election.
- He did not instruct law enforcement to illegally hide evidence from the Twin Peaks defendants.
- He did not brag that his interference in the capital murder investigation would send him to the governor's mansion.
- He did not steal the KWTX logo and place it on a campaign mailer, giving it the appearance of an endorsement.
- He did not dismiss and recuse himself from Twin Peaks biker cases the night before a hearing that would have forced his current and former employees to testify about pay-for-play dismissals, an illegal gambling ring, and an FBI corruption investigation.
- He has never used drugs.
Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is a nice little dance for the voters. How 'bout a little Elton John?
