Bye bye, BAMF

Houston Police Chief C.O. "BAMF" Bradford has announced his resignation in September, saying he needs to spend more time with his pregnant wife. It's been a rough year for Bradford, and it's hard to imagine the next mayor keeping him on - both Sanchez and Berry had pledged to get rid of him - so this is just as well. I suppose his departure before the start of heavy politicking may blunt his tenure as a campaign issue, but not too much. He's just a proxy for Mayor Brown in that regard anyway, and the problems associated with his service will still be plenty fresh in people's minds.

You can mark this as the beginning of the end of the Brown Administration, a prospect that is no doubt being celebrated about now.
