Politcal corruption in Texas? Say it ain't so!

Texas State Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn's office settled 3,656 tax cases totaling $461 million within a year of receiving related campaign contributions, according to a state audit released Thursday. Ms. Strayhorn is running against Texas Governor Rick Perry's reelection bid. She says the auditors didn't find a thing. She says it's just a coincidence. 3,656 consecutive coincidences. The auditors suggested removing tax cases from her control.
