Judge Adams Loses but Not by Enough
Posted on March 9, 2014
Have you heard about this child abuse case, where a Texas Family Judge repeatedly beat his daughter with a belt under the guise of discipline? His daughter, Hillary Adams, posted a video of the assault that went viral and made national news. Judge Adams received a year paid leave only to be reinstated to the bench. The latest news is he ran for re-election and lost, but by an astonishing close margin.
47% of voters supported him!
Unbelievable. That’s Texas for you, right? That is certainly the response I hear from many people who hear this story. Sadly, this isn’t just a problem in Texas. This is a problem in our own communities – in our own back yard.
