The controversy over Texas’ prohibition of “walking quorums” by public officials heated up last week on two fronts.

Texas officials recently celebrated the awarding of another round of federal funds to help the state recover from the effects of Hurricane Harvey.

Fort Worth school district school board President Tobi Jackson was advised in a written opinion from an attorney in April 2016 that if she had a business relationship with an employee of one of the district’s most important vendors, she needed to disclose it.

Edinburg Mayor Richard Molina and his wife Dalia were charged Thursday with orchestrating a ballot fraud scheme that allegedly helped him upset his popular predecessor in 2017.
