There has been much speculation since his primary loss where Williamson County District Attorney John Bradley might land once he leaves office, and the Texas Tribune confirms widespread rumors that he's one of three finalists "to lead the state's Special Prosecution Unit, which prosecutes crimes committed in state prisons and juvenile detention facilities and is in charge of civil commitments of sexual predators."
Grits won't say "good luck" because I'm not sure I want him to get the gig. Though it might be interesting to see John Bradley in a job which calls on him to treat convicted felons with the deference prosecutors normally afford victims, one imagines the other candidates likely offer less politicized options. OTOH, there are places he could land where he could do far more damage, just in case his road to Damascus conversion doesn't stick. Heck, I'd half-feared Gov. Perry would name him head of his Criminal Justice Division. So I've got mixed feelings about this prospect, though I'm sure Grits readers have strong opinions on the subject.
