Just Say (Adrian) Noe
Adrain Noe worked on the campaigns of Pete Schulte, Harriet Miller and Sam Coats, among other locals. Folks really liked him too; says Miller, who ran against State Rep. Tony Goolsby in '06, he appeared to be "very capable and trustworthy." Till, that is, Miller discovered Noe "had stolen her credit cards from her home and racked up thousands of dollars in charges," writes former Observer-er Matt Pulle today in his lengthy story about how Noe allegedly duped his employers during his stint in Dallas. Alas, Noe has since moved to Iowa -- where, in December, he's scheduled to stand trial for credit card and identity theft. --Robert Wilonsky
