Galveston County District Court Judge Lonnie Cox this month received a written warning from the State Commission on Judicial Conduct over public comments he made during this year’s Republican primary election.

In January, Cox appeared at a fundraiser for Galveston County Tax Assessor Collector Cheryl Johnson, who was seeking reelection to her position and was facing a primary challenge from League City resident Jackie Peden.

Johnson didn’t need his support. She is indeed the”best”. Kudos to those who report such judicial misconduct. It’s a slippery slope.
