(Shelby County) The two candidates vying to be the next district attorney general in Shelby County won’t face each other until August, but they were making news this week with questionable comments.
Incumbent DA Amy Weirich raised eyebrows when she decided not to pursue charges against an off-duty sherif’s deputy who shot a man six times during a fight on Beale Street.
Weirich acknowledged she made her decision without ever talking to the victim.
Meanwhile, challenger Joe Brown let it be known he considers himself the boss of the local Democratic Party these days.
The Informed Sources team discussed the impact of all this on the campaign.
