Texas Democrats: Judge who said Obama could trigger civil war should resign

Texas Democrats are calling for the resignation of a Republican elected county judge who warned this week that the nation could descend into civil war if President Barack Obama is re-elected.

“It’s really up to Judge (Tom) Head to do the right thing and resign and stop embarrassing Lubbock County,” said Kenny Ketner, who became the county Democratic Party’s chief Monday.

“I wish we were getting worldwide attention for something better than a crazy county judge,” Ketner told CNN. “But what are you going to do?”

There is no recall process for Head’s office in Texas, Ketner said.

The county’s Republican Party chief, Carl Tepper, accused the Democrats of “opportunism” and said he called Head and left him a message offering “moral support.”
