HOUSTON -- It's official now: Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal is not seeking re-election.

Last month, as part of a federal civil rights lawsuit filed against the Sheriff's Department, more than 100 e-mails were briefly released that detailed an affectionate relationship between Rosenthal and his secretary, Kerry Stevens.

Pressured by fellow Republicans after the scandal surfaced, Rosenthal withdrew his name Wednesday from the March primary.

Then the Houston Chronicle reported Thursday that Rosenthal was reconsidering that decision. However, Friday's extended filing deadline passed without Rosenthal throwing his hat back into the ring.
