You may remember Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, the faux “pro-life” Republican who refused to prosecute accused neck-twisting Houston abortionist Doug Karpen. She also later flipped a grand jury that was supposed to investigate Planned Parenthood, but instead indicted pro-life journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt.
Daleiden and Merritt’s charges were later dismissed after it was revealed that Anderson had violated the law to indict them.
Illustrating that old adage, “what goes around comes around,” Anderson was soundly defeated in November.
But it gets better.
The new District Attorney-Elect Kim Ogg has decided to “drain the swamp” of corruption, which plagued the office during Anderson’s tenure. Ogg has notified 40 prosecutors that their services are no longer needed. Among them is Assistant District Attorney Sunni Mitchell.
Anderson had selected Mitchell to oversee the 2013 Karpen grand jury and the 2015 Planned Parenthood/Daleiden grand jury. Mitchell has been blamed for leaking information from the “secret” grand jury process to Planned Parenthood then working with them to indict Daleiden and Merritt. Her manipulation of both grand juries protected Karpen and Planned Parenthood from criminal prosecution.
