Down but not out

An FBI probe and an adverse court ruling may force a Dallas anti-poverty agency to close its doors

Montgomery insists the state has not made that request and does not have the power to tell the agency's board whom to hire.

Bond says the state housing agency is "the pot calling the kettle black."In trying to make its case, DCCAC complained that the state is operating the Community Service Block Grant program in violation of federal law. The judge ruled that DCCAC brought no evidence to support its claim.

Now, with an FBI investigation, the embattled DCCAC may have the opportunity to make the same argument again. But if federal indictments are the result, agency officials may be facing more than the closing of its doors.
