I will take the Ralph update for today, I guess. We are all tired of it, but it’s news either way you look at it.
AJC.com front page story: No probe in Reed lobbying efforts
Travis County Attorney David Escamilla, whose office prosecutes misdemeanors, said Reed’s activities raised “legitimate” concerns, but a two-year statute of limitations prevented him engaging in a formal investigation. Travis County includes the state capital of Austin.
“There’s smoke,” said Escamilla. “But all of the smoke relates to a period I can’t do anything about.”
I know we are going to hear the same arguments back and forth, but this is some significant news indeed. On one hand, pro-Reed folks will use this to say Ralph is off the hook; while, anti-Reed people can say that he just got off on a technicality, and shows his guilt since there apparently are “legitimate concerns.”
