Famous Last Words: the Jewel Scott edition

"I have no doubt that this community wants to keep me as the D.A." [Source: Clayton News Daily, "Names thrown, claims contested in DA race", July 22, 2008]

Those are the words of out-going Clayton County District Attorney Jewel Scott about a week after the July 15th Democratic primary in which she was forced into a run-off with Clayton Juvenile Court Judge Tracy Graham Lawson.

In the end, the Clayton County community didn't want to keep Scott as the district attorney and it wasn't even close.

Talk about famous last words.
