KERA News Special: Texas At Risk For Corruption
Texas ranks in the bottom half of all states for being vulnerable to corruption. That’s one of the findings of the extensive State Integrity Investigation that was recently released. It gave Texas a grade of D+.
During a live, hour-long call-in program KERA’s Shelley Kofler took a closer look at several areas in which Texas scored poorly: access to public information, campaign financing and conflicts of interest.
Joining in the discussion were Dallas Attorney Paul Watler, a founding member of the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas, and Craig McDonald, director of Texans for Public Justice.
