Lindsay Lohan Prosecutor Runs for D.A.

12/31/2010 1:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's legal nemesis, L.A. County Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers, has thrown her hat in the ring to become the next D.A.

Meyers, a no-nonsense veteran prosecutor who wanted Lindsay locked up after giving her multiple chances, announced her candidacy this AM.

She's handled multiple hardcore murder cases and is widely respected by judges, prosecutors and even a bunch of defense lawyers.

Meyers has been a D.A. for nearly a quarter of a century and has been named prosecutor of the year.

If elected she'd be the first woman and first African American elected to the non-partisan position.

She didn't seem any harder on Lindsay than most of the people writing on this blog wanted her to be. An attitude that you obey the law and the orders of the court of suffer the punishment it gives you is not a bad attitude for a DA to have.

She detailed the missed weeks of Lindsay's alcohol classes carefully and without any "put on a show" crap and nailed her with her own bad performance. She was obviously prepared for the hearing and very able to get her point across.

If I lived there she would have my vote.

I'll vote for her not because she's a woman or African American, but because she's good.

Ah...another public service peon who wants to take a step up because of her face time in the Lindsay trial. If I've seen once, I've seen it a thousand times. If she's truly qualified that's one thing, me thinks she may not.

Anybody who get's a "Prosecutor of the Year" award has my vote. Even if it's Mickey Mouse. Now that being said, someone air drop some chivas in the prison yards there's some marginalizing that needs to be going on right about now.

This is just more affirmative action nonsense. People like President Purple Lips are mediocre at best and should be ignored.

Good for her! And she nailed it with Lindsay. Good grief! The gal snuck out of Rehab to go party with her friends. What has happened about that anyway, TMZ? Will there be any repurcussions at all for Lindsay's actions there?

NO VOTE!! just a case of ANOTHER person in Lindsay's life exploiting her for their own personal gain. how can she possibly be expected to pick herself back up if everyone around her wants her to fail for their own selfish reasons?
