I am the campaign treasurer for Shawna Reagin, who is running as a Democrat for the 176th District Court of Harris County, Texas. Today I learned that the incumbent judge (who really has to go) now has a Republican opponent in the primary: Michelle Satarelli (Oncken). Michelle is a Harris County ADA who is married to a defense lawyer; she had the spine, when she was the chief prosecutor in the 176th, to stand up publicly to the judge’s illegal policies. Michelle will be a more difficult opponent to beat in the general election than the incumbent, but that’s just fine with me. Anything would be better than the present state of affairs.
