One of their chief witnesses was so tainted that his evidence would not stand up in court. So the first strategy of character assassination fell flat.
Then the DA tried the political path, a vote of no confidence which ended with a mud-in-the face result, defeated in a vote where one’s party has a 66% majority, indeed the ultimate humiliation. At this stage, those intent of ridding themselves of this troublesome woman must have been pulling their hair out, for strategy two was a miserable failure.
Character assassination didn’t work, a vote of no confidence didn’t work, so let’s try a third foolproof way. Change the rules in our own kingdom, our DA constitution, for in that way all power is vested in our internal processes, and we can do as we please.
