Leading Off (5/28/09)

1. Richard Fleming, who became the first minority elected to the Carrollton-Farmers Branch School Board on May 9, found out three days before the election he actually lives in Lewisville. But Dallas County Judge Ken Molberg says he can’t overturn the election, so Fleming stays. I haven’t thought this much about the boundaries between those cities since I lived in Lewisville and was trying to figure out where to buy beer.

2. Philippe Padieau, a Frisco martial arts instructor, was convicted of six counts of aggravated assault; he had unprotected sex without telling his partners he was HIV positive. He’s also guilty of having a cruddy lawyer. Bennie House’s closing argument: “Mr. Padieu is not a predator. … He likes sex.” Nice try. One more thing: look at this photo of Padieau. It’s like a road company version of Cape Fear and he’s Max Cady. Philippe, maybe try not to look exactly like a predator when you’re defending yourself from aggravated assault charges.

3. This guy can’t display his pro-military bumper stickers, but this lady can hang her American flag in her office again. So I guess everything has evened out. But seriously — that HOA can shove it. As can most HOAs, honestly.
