AG DECIDES ON RELEASE OF PUBLIC INFOMATION, NOT DA
Guest Post By R. S. Gates, Minister of Irritance
Waco – I received a letter today from Abel Reyna wherein he requests to withhold public information. The Texas Public Information Act reserves the authority to determine what is and isn’t public information to the Attorney General.
I requested information related to the separation of Ms. Britanny Lannen Scaramucci from employment with the DA’s office. I made the request because the news media quoted Abel Reyna saying she was fired from his office, and I saw a post on social media saying that was not the case. So here you have a he-said/she-said.
I was at the hearing where there was a motion to remove her as special counsel in the prosecution of the two Baylor people who were arrested for DWI. The subject of her separation from employment with the DA was, in my opinion, thoroughly vetted in that hearing. I think the case could be made it was the sole basis for the hearing. At the end of the day, Judge Gassaway was unimpressed and refused to order her removal.
The local lap-dog media has eagerly published quotes from Abel Reyna and made little or no effort to do any real reporting. As you can see from the AG request, Abel Reyna appears averse to fact checking.
It’s pretty simple, if there is a letter of resignation, she was not fired. If she was not fired, not only is the DA lying but he local news media has no credibility and could be characterized as a propaganda machine.
I think your readers deserve to decide for themselves.
