Waiting on Ligon

Word from up north is that a chief prosecutor in one of Montgomery County's felony courts was asked to pack up her desk and not come back. As we all know by now, Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon and his chief crony, Warren Diepraam, dreamed up the idea of tweeting the names of motorists arrested for suspicion of DWI in MoCo.

These folks whose names are being bandied about haven't been proven guilty of anything and are presumed innocent. If you're firing someone, however, there's got to be a reason. Not to mention that the firing of a chief prosecutor in a felony court is a newsworthy event (one of Mr. Diepraam's justifications for the new policy).

To date, Mr. Ligon's Twitter account is silent on the matter.
