Dallas County

Maurine Dickey Would Like to Apologize For Her Comments Made During FBI Raid

One of the first people with whom I spoke Monday morning, following news that federal agents had swarmed Dallas County HQ, was Commissioner Maurine Dickey. Some of what she said that morning had been repeated myriad times since. Like, say, her response to the news that FBI agents were in John Wiley Price's office and at his house: "Should I dance, or should I sing?" Or her contention that FBI agents were in Mike Cantrell's office, which county officials and the FBI hastily corrected -- and which prompted Cantrell to say yesterday that he's considering filing a lawsuit against his fellow county commissioner.

Maybe that's why this just showed up in the inbox:

Update: Upon further review, "apologize" was way too strong a word. I apologize.
