Mary Rain is proving vexing for those who advocated for her ascension to the office of DA of the Big County. In an editorial, it is opined public officials should be able to finish their terms if they have not been convicted of a felony, but that if Ms. Rain had a shred of decency she would resign due to her demonstrated incompetance.
When did she become inept ? Who vetted the candidate who once elected was in position to preside over the administration of justice for 120K people ?
Now the frantic want Governor Cuomo to parachute in and rescue them from their lack of judgment. I doubt Mr. Cuomo will oblige, nor should he.
The power of the state manifested in police and prosecutors, buttressed by public demands for law and order, is a frightening thing, but she was elected and like her or not, she will finish her term,and run for reelection if she wants.
To think someone being paid $3500 a week is going to give that up when she probably thinks she is doing a good job is laughable.
