Political Fallout from Texas Observer Investigation Continues

march 16, 2007  02:20 pm
Today, the six board members of the Texas Youth Commission (TYC) became the latest to resign in the wake of the Observer's February story on sexual abuse at a state youth correctional facility and its cover-up, the Dallas Morning News reports. The board resigned two days after the State Senate voted for their ouster, but not before they approved a rehabilitation plan for the TYC. Meanwhile, the Observer has uncovered yet another disciplinary report relating to the scandal that was altered with the apparent approval of the TYC's leadership.
