The big show-and-tell meeting between the U.S. Attorney's Office and Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, scheduled for today, has been postponed, according to reliable sources. We have a call in to Price's attorney, Billy Ravkind, for word on why.
Ravkind had predicted previously that the feds would show Price the best evidence against him they have gathered in a three-year criminal probe, that they would offer him a deal and that Price would refuse the offer. Apparently things didn't get even that far.
