Dregs : 39% in another scandal; Ciro has a weak opponent; Judge Criss and Noriega takes command

  • Vince at Capitol Annex has more on the newest scandal to hit 39%, that of poor Republican management at the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.

    Hundreds of residents at Texas’ state schools for the mentally retarded have suffered serious abuse and neglect at the hands of those paid to watch over them, a Dallas Morning News review shows.

    Documents released by all but three of the 12 state schools operated by the state Department of Aging and Disability Services outline everything from horrific physical violence and neglect to frightening verbal threats, derogatory slurs and pranks.(DMN)

  • Matt at BOR has a great piece up about Ciro Rodriguez's presumed Republican opponent, Francisco Canseco, and his fuzzy fundraising. Apparently, Canseco is loaning himself money, then talking about what a brilliant fundraiser he is. Anyone seen a picture of this clown? Does he have an L on his forehead?
  • Finally, Judge Susan Criss has a new website up as part of her campaign for the Texas Supreme Court! If elected, Judge Criss will make the first rational, intelligent person elected to the Court since Bob Gammage. She'll also be the first Democrat to serve since Gammage. Wait... I'm being redundant.
  • You're invited to witness the Change of Command Ceremony when Lt. Col. Rick Noriega (yes, THAT Rick Noriega) will take charge of the 1st Battalion 141st Infantry Regiment (The First Texas) on Saturday, August 4th at 9:00 AM. As in the morning. People in the military do shit WAY too early in the day.
