Bob Dunn at FortBendNow has a complete story on this including quotes from Elliott himself who was oddly very talkative about his public sacking.
Healey wouldn’t comment on the affair other than to say that the reasons for firing Elliott had to do with “performance issues.”
Elliott, however, had it differently, saying that the chief reason for his firing was that Healey feared that Elliott would run against him next year. Firing him, I guess, was his way of marginalizing him.
I really don’t think that the DA had much to be afraid of vis-à-vis Mike Elliott. Not in the way Elliott imagines, that is.
Because the truth is, Mike Elliott was Healey’s albatross. Keeping him on year after year, with all of his shenanigans out in public was testimony to John Healey’s incredible mishandling of the office of the district attorney.
Either that or Elliott had Healey over a barrel with possession of a bunch of photographs.
Who knows where this will lead, what with Republicans having at each other from one end of the country to the other. One can only hope that it will lead to having a new DA next year, followed by maybe an outbreak of justice in
