"Sharon Keller: The Facts"

by: David Feigen

Mon Oct 22, 2012 at 03:30 PM CDT

The Keith Hampton campaign has released a blistering new ad shedding light on Sharon Keller's shady record on the Court of Criminal Appeals. The ad highlights Keller's controversial decision regarding the execution of Michael Richard, where she denied the appeal of Richard's lawyers, because they "close at five." Keller's actions have brought shame to the court, as she was publicly rebuked by the Commission on Judicial Conduct and fined $100,000 by the Texas Ethics Commission.

The Texas Court of Appeals is the highest court of criminal matters in the state, and the consequences of reelecting her are far too costly to the ideals of justice for all. Keith Hampton will restore dignity and honor to the court and to the state.

Hampton has been enthusiastically endorsed by the Dallas Morning News , the Ft. Worth Star Telegram , and the Houston Chronicle .
