In Dallas, State Rep and Mayor Caught on Tape in Domestic Disturbance Involving Knife


They lied about the fight, claiming that the fight was actually between two men, "Arthur and Archie" (um, first thing off the top of your head much?), arguing about football. But the mayor was taped answering the cops' questions, noting his wife, the state rep, had a "chemical imbalance" and admitting she drew a knife on him.

A great deal of effort was expended to suppress the tape but a judge ruled it must be released.

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. She pulled a knife on him, it was quite the brouhaha. He sounds like a patient man on the tape, but to the public he has repeatedly lied. Rep. Caraway is on the Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee (yeah) and the Urban Affairs Committee in the state House. Their domestic dispute ended up embroiling major figures in city government. Mayor Caraway still has yet to tell the whole truth about all this. He called his loss in court yesterday, the battle to block the release of the tapes, “another win for the high dollar people.”

I like how the immediate spin is that this is some kind of class/race warfare deal. A "win for high dollar people," as if only high dollar people are curious to know if their state representative is a knife-crazed maniac. And I'm sorta thinking "high dollar people" is polite code for "Whitey."
