Are You Listening Yet?

McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna has begun dismissing or recusing himself from Twin Peaks prosecutions en masse.

Yesterday, attorneys Clint Broden, David Conrad Beyer, and Brian Bouffard held a press conference in the courthouse rotunda to announce that "the dam has broken." Video here.

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.

Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is a nice little dance for the voters. How 'bout a little Elton John?
