I hear Joe Brown supporters complain that the issues aren't being discussed. Well, it appears that the only "issues" they want discussed are the ones THEY choose.
When it comes to the elected offices of the judiciary and the leading criminal prosecutor of the county, I think that the ethical and moral turpitude of a candidate should top the list of ISSUES when considering the candidate.
In weighing Shelby County's choices for the office of D.A. objectively, Amy Weirich's work ethic and prosecutorial record is preferable to what Joe Brown offers.
As for her "policy" on LGBT issues...publicly, Ms. Weirich supports all victims of domestic violence (See Bianca Phillips story on "Love Doesn't Hurt"). Amy Weirich has supported this event for three consecutive years since becoming Shelby County D.A.
Lastly, there is no record, no evidence or even the appearance of rampant subrogation of the rules of law by this D.A or the assistant D.A.'s serving in the office. These allegations are wrong at best, and scurrilous lies and innuendo at worst.
