A position-taking FrontBurnervian has an anecdote to share about a Collin County judge we’ve come to know:

When Verla Sue Holland first ran for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, I telephoned her to ask her some questions about her background.

I’m an anti-death penalty activist, but my questions were (for the most part) fair game questions for anyone running for elected political office.

Each of her responses was “The Texas Judicial Canons of Ethics prohibit me from answering.” The other candidates running for the same office were eager and happy to talk with me at length.
