Uber Investigation Blames Interim Dallas City Manager, Finds No Illegal Conduct
Leandre Johns of Uber in Dallas.
A.C. Gonzales, the interim Dallas City Manager, has nearly completed his triple-lux fall onto the proverbial sword in the city's attempt to marginalize Uber at the behest of the taxi industry.
A short while ago, Mayor Mike Rawlings released and reacted to the findings of former Dallas County District Attorney William Hill, who was hired by the mayor to investigate how an Uber-squashing ordinance found its way onto the Dallas City Council's consent agenda, and how vice cops found themselves into Uber's cars, posing as customers.
As expected, blame is basically laid at Gonzales' feet, with the mayor and former city manager Mary Suhm escaping basically unscathed. The full report, plus the mayor's response, are below.
