DA Magidson

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ken Magidson is reportedly Governor Perry’s choice for interim Harris County District Attorney. His appointment is supposedly contingent on his getting the U.S. Department of Justice’s approval to run the Harris County DA’s Office for 9 months and then return to his job at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, but this sort of announcement seems to me not to be the sort that a governor makes without being pretty darn sure the appointee is going to take the job.

I think Ken is a good choice to run the office during the election. He is an outsider who worked at the Office some 20 years ago; he strikes me as an honorable man who will have the support of both sides of the criminal bar in trying to fix what he thinks needs immediate repair at the Office while keeping it on course.Assistant District Attorneys can breathe easy for a few more months (though a backup plan is probably still a good idea).
