The state constitution also allows county commissioners the authority to keep McLeod in his post until a special election is held, KHOU reported.
Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan’s office will present the issue to county commissioners when they meet Monday, according to the television station.
McLeod declined to be interviewed, citing concerns over ethics violations.
Kandice Webber is part of a social media push to keep McLeod at his post."Our judges are human," Webber told KHOU. "This would not be the first time that a judge has made a mistake. I would beg the court to leave him where he is. This is where Houstonians want him. This is where Harris County wants him, and we made that very loud and clear at the ballot."
