The Democrat is state Rep. Barbara Caraway. Her district is in the Dallas area. On January 2, her husband, Dallas Mayor Dwaine Caraway, called the police on a domestic disturbance. Questions soon arose as to just what went down that night, and Mr. Caraway tried the lie first:

Caraway called Dallas Police Chief David Brown and asked him to send an elite team of investigators to his home to investigate a disturbance. Caraway later told reporters the disturbance involved two guests, ďArthur and Archie,Ē who were arguing about football.

Problem: That wasnít true. He was really in a big fight with Mrs. Caraway (the state Rep.) about some aprons. Archie and Arthur may not even exist. But there was a police tape of the incident, and Mayor Caraway fired up the city machinery to keep that tape away from the press and the public. Iíll let Texas Watchdog pick up the story from there.

After involving everyone from Dallas Police Chief David Brown, the city attorney and the state Attorney General to obstruct our public freedom to indulge in tawdry information, it took a Dallas judge to get Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway to hand over a police recording of a domestic violence call to his home on Jan. 2.

It pretty much turned out to be what everybody expected, a battle royal between Caraway and his wife, state Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway, D-Dallas, according to the tape released today and carried by NBC Dallas Fort Worth.

While pretending not to be a bit interested in the lurid circumstances of a politician pulling a knife on another politician to whom he happens to be married, what is fascinating is how much taxpayer-financed civic machinery got cranked up to keep a police blotter item secret.

Not to mention questions about what is to be done about the mayor pro temís original and now discredited account of what prompted him to call police in the first place, involving friends Archie and Arthur who may or may not exist.

The tape, at the NBC link above, is really something. Mr. Caraway admits without saying directly, that his wife, a woman who has some impact on the lives of everyday Texans, is violently crazy. ... http://pajamasmedia.com/tatler/2011/03/24/texas-dem-state-rep-pulls-knife-on-hubby-dallas-mayor-caught-in-web-of-lies-police-tape-hits-the-streets/
