Texas Senator Indicted on Official Misconduct Charges
By Karen Tumulty and Lianne Hart
Los Angeles Times
Less than four months after her record-breaking election victory, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, was indicted Monday on felony charges of official misconduct and ordering Texas state employees to destroy evidence.
Hutchison was accused of using state employees and state facilities to conduct her personal and political business in 1991 and 1992, while she was state treasurer, then ordering that computer records of the alleged misconduct be destroyed after an investigation began.
Also indicted in Austin, Texas, were two of her former aides, Michael Barron, who was deputy state treasurer, and David Criss, who was her planning director.
Hutchison, 50, denied that she had engaged in any improper activity and said that the indictment is "merely another chapter in the sleazy campaign tactics employed by Democrats during the U.S. Senate campaign this year."
Hutchison was elected in June to fill the Senate seat that had been held for more than two decades by Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen, a Democrat.
Combining feminism with conservatism, she trounced Democrat Bob Krueger, who had been appointed to fill the vacancy six months earlier, by a better than two-to-one margin -- the largest any Senate challenger had ever racked up against an incumbent.
The indictment throws into question whether Hutchison and the Republicans will be able to hold the seat next year, when she will be at the top of the state ticket in her bid to be elected to her first full term.
It is far from clear how strong her opposition will be.
Some Democrats are hoping that Hutchison's possible vulnerability might induce a political superstar, such as Gov. Ann Richards or Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros, into the race.
The indictment did not describe Hutchison's alleged offenses in detail. However, state records examined by the Houston Chronicle indicated that Hutchison used state employees for nongovernmental activities that ranged from coordinating her political schedule to planning her Christmas vacation in Colorado to writing thank-you notes.
Speaking with reporters, the senator said that she did not ask state employees to do anything that was illegal or "out of the ordinary."
"I did not go to a pay phone down the hall to return personal phone calls," she insisted, but added: "I really did everything I could do to separate the state and nonstate business."
John M. Dowd, her Washington lawyer, called the charges "vague and mushy" and said that he plans to meet next week with a Texas judge to have a trial scheduled as soon as possible.
"We're very anxious to get to trial and take it on," he said.
The indictment culminates months of feuding between the senator and Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle, a prominent Democrat.
Earle denied Hutchison's contention that the indictment was politically motivated. "This is a somber occasion for all of us but our duty and that of the grand jury is clear," he said in a statement issued by his office.
The Travis County grand jury charged Hutchison with three counts of official misconduct, two of which are second-degree felonies and one of which is a Class A misdemeanor. The most serious of the charges carries a possible penalty of as many as 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow
but the anticpation and suspense is killing me! i wish they could have announced the early voting results so we can see where we are.

Perry will win the primary
A Perry-Medina runoff
A Perry-Hutchison runoff
KBH will not leave the race before Tuesday. That would write her political obituary, destroy whatever legacy she hopes to leave, and take all of the donors and supporters who have worked long and hard for her down as well. I give the odds she drops out at 1 in 1000 and suggest Medina and supporters plan accordingly.
10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.
Please don't do this again unless you have a link for conformation,You may be trying to make us look like fools and it is not appreciated,Who are you?
If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.
You are correct, I should have looked for a link before I posted the comment that KBH was dropping out of the race. I was watching Fox news about 11:30AM sunday and they had a piece on the Texas governors race. I understood it that she was dropping out of the race. Said she was needed more in the senate and had another 2 1/2 years to serve there. I tried to get a link on Fox to re-play the news piece but i could not find it. I appoligise to DPers that I jumped the gun on this, I'm very sorry for any confusion it caused. Who am I? I am a small business owner in Grand Rapids Michigan who is a very big supporter of Ron Paul and advocate of smaller government.
I am also a small business owner that likes Ron Paul.
I hold you in high regard,It shows great fortitude to be responsible as you have done,Thank you.The thing I was concerned with is that these posts hit Google as soon as you hit the save button, with the DP as a link.
I feel it is very important to be accurate because in 5 minutes it turns into a feeding frenzy here on the DP that spreads around the world.This is all our own faults,For allowing that to happen from a small tidbit of information that may or may not be true.I have seen it happen now many times.I almost did it myself once.
Again,Thanks and have a great day.
Thank you for your polite responce. I should be old enough and wise enough to listen closely to these news clips. I will make sure I have the documentation next time I post. You have a good day too friend.
anyone should be able to work with that, thank you!
its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
next few days...
Thank you so much for your work!
I have convinced 4 people in Texas to vote for Debbie, which they already have in early voting. Also convince some democrats in Idaho to support her with donations.....I'm on a roll!! lol!
these 4 people surely talked to others and converted them to Medina...this is the spirit - that is how Medina victory tomorrow will take place!
i am quite sure that all of those texans that voted early for her will be so happy that they WASTED their vote!!!
kbh is a true gop politician...she cares NOT about the voter!
MEDINA for TEXAS!!!
we need to place the word out for others!
Texas Farm Girls
By Penny Langford Longfellow
If you’re feelin' like a macho and try to steal our land,
Taking money from our business to send to Uncle Sam;
Or Bailout Wall street tycoons just cuz they lobby loud,
Well podna you just gotta go cuz you ain’t done us proud.
The patriots in Texas have had about enough,
Of a New York City pundit talkin’ like he’s tough;
Cuz we know he’s bought and paid for by the ole boy with good hair,
Real Texans don’t have others fight their battles, that ain't square.
We decided down in Texas where we fought the Alamo,
We whipped big government once and now again it's gotta go.
The deck was stacked against us with so much money it’s uncouth,
We Texans stockpile ammo it called justice and the truth.
Margie in Columbus had the idea that we’d chose,
A woman with guts and brains enough resolve to never lose,
Debra took the banner and led the battle cry,
With gun in hand went cross the land and held truth’s flag up high.
Teresa in West Texas gathered troops across the miles,
While Nancy in East Texas won the people with her smiles.
Katie lives in Austin dressed Debra up and made her purdy;
Vanessa manned the office down in Corpus and Valverde.
Dixie down in Schulenburg gathered patriots that she knew,
She and Carol been around and knew just what to do.
Gwen called all the media; she’s cute and has the grit,
Nancy in San Marcos came from Florida to cause some Texas…fit.
Terri left her chickens in the pen to join the fray,
She’d fight for seven kids to have their freedom back one day.
Penny hailed from Angleton on the Gulf of Mexico,
She yearned to make the bureaucrats eat chili made of crow.
They fought for days on end with all their Texas patriot brothers;
The opponents sweating bullets the battle cry went out to others.
Patriots fought from other states to make ole Texas free,
Their eyes are on all Texas from sea to shining sea.
Debra’s arms are tired from holdin’ up the flag,
She’s been taken bullets but We Texans got her back,
No matter how this battle ends Texas freedom is in our sight
Don’t mess with Texas farm girls or you’re gonna have a fight.
Texas Liberty Lady
Excellent Liberty Lady! Thank you for sharing that!
Don't mess with Texas!!

can I post it on my website that is just getting started http://www.libertypoet.com
It was just announced on FOX that KBH is withdrawing from the governors race. If this is infact true the republican party must have pressured her to get out of the way to let Perry win. Hopefully these KBH votes will go for Medina.
these votes must go to Medina -
EVERYBODY go to your local library get a Texas phone book and start calling Texans.
there is nothing anywhere on the web to back it up. We don't want to be the ones that "started a rumor".
that was my first reaction - but you know what if Texas folks think KBH drops out or is about to drop out they will vote Medina.
We need to confirm before exploding!Link please!
I don't know if this is a good thing or not.
I'm not finding anything at all to verify this so far.
Please a link?
It doesn't make sense for her to drop out 2 days from the election, while she's polling ahead of Medina. Something's rotten in Denmark.
I can't find anything on it at all still.
Don't tell me the 'nobody' is privy to the accumulating vote counts.....
This could/would ONLY happen if Medina is surging.
This is pre-emptive....
bet my life on it.
I can't believe that any Texan would not want to get rid of the property tax. If you rent your rental cost will go down and if you own the property the value of your property will go up. Why would the host not want to rid itself of a parasite? A win by Debra Medina will free Texans from this burdensom tax. I live in Michigan and wish we had a candidate like DM. Michigan taxes are so high its driving business and people out of the state. Right now the michigan legislature is proposing new and increased taxes. Texans if you want to see what your future is like with out Debra Medina take a look at Michigan.
