The Mess in Texas May Fizzle in Part
MySanAntonio.com is reporting that the State of Texas sought to dismiss Rep. Lon Burham's suit against the Department of Public Safety. Burnam had claimed that the DPS continued to destroy documents even after he had requested them under the open records law. The DPS has now produced some documents and has cast doubt on the (not yet heard) testimony of a legislative staffer.
More details on the search for the Killer D's is contained in this article from the Austin American-Statesman. A DPS official testified that nearly every good lead in the case came from the Speaker or the other politicos, not from the cops following wives, staking out homes and hospitals, and the like.
