Oh, THOSE assets: Judge Keller not so poor after all
After pleading poverty and asking the state to pay for her defense counsel in removal proceedings by the Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct, Court of Criminal Appeals Presiding Judge Sharon Keller has revealed $2.4 million in assets she previously had not disclosed in her state ethics filings. Said one wag, "If a defense attorney in a death penalty case before Judge Keller's court filed briefs as carelessly as Keller filed her financials, the client in question already would have been executed." Ain't that the truth?
