A Texas judge is in a local hospital after being shot overnight outside her Austin home, according to police.Geez, here in Wisconsin, the Republicans only legalize corruption and buy the judges. Although, to be honest, they probably undid the gun laws we had in case the first plans didn't work.
Travis County District Judge Julie Kocurek has been involved in many cases, including high-profile political cases involving former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. House Majority Leader Tom Delay.
In addition, Kocurek has also been active in the local community, including serving as a local co-chair in the National Campaign to Stop Violence, a past board member of the Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin and a supporter of the West Austin Youth Association, according to CNN.
However, the police have not determined what the motivation was for the shooting.
Kocurek, who has been the presiding judge of the 290th District Court since 1999, was struck around 10:15 p.m. (11:15 p.m. ET) Friday near her house in the Texas capital’s Tarrytown neighborhood, said Austin police Lt. Lee Rogers.
The judge was last listed in stable condition at a nearby hospital.
