Clarence Bradford sighting!

Clarence Bradford, the Democratic candidate for District Attorney who has seemingly been in a witness protection program since announcing his candidacy, has been sighted!

Chronicle diarist Lisa Falkenberg actually secured a quote from him on the topic of a public defender's office:

Clarence Bradford
"It promotes fairness and justice, period," said former Houston Police Chief C.O. Bradford, Democrat for district attorney.

Bradford, who will face Lykos or Siegler in the general election for DA, said Harris County needs a system similar to other large jurisdictions, where the judge "is not involved in the type of defense the defendant gets."

"There has been a tendency to accept the principle of locking everybody up and throwing away the key is the answer," Bradford said. "That has failed."

What a great opportunity for the Chronicle to ask Clarence Bradford about his role in mismanaging HPD's crime lab! Too bad it was a missed opportunity. But perhaps there will be another Clarence Bradford sighting before the general election, and the intrepid local media will get around to asking him more questions.
