First off, as with all of my posts on Judge Denise Pratt, let’s stipulate this:
Judge Denise Pratt is incompetent and should resign or be removed from office. And since it is too late for her to remove her name from the Harris County Republican Party Primary ballot, voters should reject her and put her out to pasture.
Sorry to have to keep reminding you of that but every day she sits on the bench is a day that families’ lives are being negatively affected and you need to realize that.
Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about the juvenile antics of Judge Denise Pratt of the 311th Family Court in Harris County. Let’s set the stage and context of what I’m going to tell you.
The Harris County Republican Party held an Executive Committee meeting on Tuesday evening at Houston Baptist University. Executive committee meetings are where the Precinct Chairs get to, in theory, conduct the business of the party. I arrived around 6:30 pm, about halfway into the 6-7pm social hour – the meeting started at 7:00 pm.
While I was walking around getting the lay of the land, I noticed several people passing out flyers about Judge Denise Pratt. In addition to handing them out, they were placing them on tables that were spread across the room so that people could pick them up at their leisure and read about Judge Denise Pratt’s problems. Many candidates were also putting their push cards on these tables – it is standard practice at any political gathering during primary season. Upon inquiring about the Pratt flyers, the people passing them out were either attorneys that practiced in her court or “victims” of her incompetent brand of “justice”. One of them told me that he had confronted Judge Denise Pratt after seeing her walking around picking up his flyers – she told him that she was picking them up and putting them where they belonged, in the trash. I thought, nah, he must have been mistaken – most likely that was one of the hired campaign workers that she has paid to go around commenting on websites and passing out her push cards. So I didn’t think much of it. Surely a sitting Family Court Judge wouldn’t stoop to that level. Right?
About halfway through the meeting, I excused myself to find a restroom and get another cup of water. Mind you, most of the people at the meeting, several hundred, were now inside the auditorium and participating or watching the meeting. There were a half-dozen or so people in the “break” area at this time. And lo and behold, guess who one of them was?
I stood there in amazement watching a sitting Family Court Judge gleefully going from table to table picking up flyers that cast her in a negative light and throwing them away. I was talking to a couple of other people at the time and told them and they didn’t believe me – until they turned around and watched. Unbelievable.
Since she doesn’t want you to see them, I decided to scan them and let you see what Judge Denise Pratt was afraid to let HCRP precinct chairs see. There are three documents in total.
A four page copy of Ed Hubbard’s Judge Denise Pratt, Please Resign post. Obviously I could have just linked to Ed’s post but if someone took the time to print it, staple it, and distribute it, I figure I have the time to scan it.
If you are a Republican voter, you should click on each of those links and see what Judge Denise Pratt doesn’t want you to know. If you are not a Republican voter, you are probably salivating at the thought of running against her in November.
Folks, let’s have a little straight talk. This woman, er, juvenile, is sitting behind a bench (on the days she shows up for work) and imposing her very warped views of the world on families that are already in crisis. Are you kidding me?
I’m not much of an “Anyone but” kinda guy and will have an endorsement in this race in the next day or so but please – ANYONE BUT THIS MORON!
