County Blocks Access to John Wiley Price This Morning at Commissioners Court
John Wiley Price, shoving WFAA reporter Brett Shipp last year, in the days before Price's reputation was sullied by corruption allegations in an FBI affidavit.
Most Tuesdays when the Dallas County Commissioners Court ends, reporters throng the dais to pepper the commissioners with questions. The question that was on the tip of everyone's tongue this morning was "Hey John Wiley Price. Did you really embezzle and launder all that money like the FBI guy said?"
For the moment, though, we'll just have to imagine his answer since reporters were blocked from approaching the commissioners.
My favorite part is this nugget from DMN's Kevin Krause:
Jenkins answered angry questions from TV news reporters after the meeting, saying the restrictions were needed to "keep order in the court." He gave the impression the added measure was taken because WFAA-TV reporter Brett Shipp tried to get into the closed session conference room last week.
Answers will come soon enough in a another type of court entirely.
