Following up on Tim’s post from Monday about an ethics complaint filed by Carol Bell-Walton against Robb Stewart, a member of the Dallas Park and Recreation Board, the DMN reports:

“But Rosa Rios, the city secretary, said by email late Tuesday that Bell-Walton’s complaint has been thrown out because it ‘failed to state a date during which a/any violation occurred.’

The city’s Ethics Advisory Commission reviews and rules on alleged violations. But Rios’ office serves as the initial gatekeeper for complaints.”

I enjoy City Councilman Philip Kingston’s reaction to the news:

Here is Ken Paxton’s Mugshot

Not sure why he didn't have to wear the towel over his clothes. Thought that was standard. But I'm not gonna complain. As for that lopsided smile, very strong move. Says "OK OK I'll go along with this, but I just want y'all to know you're full of it." Although with his eye situation, it kind of looks like one side of his head is made of metal and either someone turned on a giant electromagnet right before this was snapped, or else Magneto is nearby and is tying up loose ends perhaps. Would he need to work with a state attorney general? I don't know. The X-Men continuity is honestly pretty confusing, and I'm not even sure the movies add up. Anyway.
