Craig Watkins Should Stop Believing His Own Publicity

Zac Crain’s profile is entitled “The Last Temptation of Craig Watkins.” Maybe it should have been titled “Lead Me Not Into…” Because of falling tax revenues, the Commissioners Court has ordered all departments to cut expenses by 10 percent. Watkins is balking. Not just balking, but refusing. He’s saying that his budget should go to the voters for approval. Good luck with that. A district attorney ought to know the law. And knowing the law, follow it.

    If you read the DMN’s story that the editorial is based on, it says that Watkins is protesting but is complying with commissioner’s requests for the cuts.
