Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Lynn Flint Shaw today resigned as the Dallas Area Rapid Transit board chair, claiming the Dallas County District Attorney's investigations into allegations she lifted Craig Watkins' signature and created phone District Attorney's office letterhead had become "a distraction." She also mentions the "public scrutiny" given her "personal financial situation and past campaign for Dallas City Council," but refuses to "discuss these personal matters publicly again."

Wouldn't ya know it, Schutze is out of the office; never fear, he'll be back shortly. Till then, here is the missive she sent to Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway -- and, please, no lifting her signature, even allegedly. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
