State Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway, Dwaine and Dave Neumann at Dallas City Hall
Below, of course, you can listen to Mayor Dwaine Caraway's account of what happened between him and his wife on the night of January 2, per a recording made by Dallas Police after Chief David Brown sent officers -- including Deputy Chief Craig Miller -- to his and state Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway's house. Chris Heinbaugh, in the mayor's office, just sent this statement from Caraway himself:
I have contended from the start that the recording contains deeply personal and private information. There is no public interest in this information, and I have made every effort to protect my family's privacy. But I respect the ruling of the court, and it's time to move on.

This morning, I assembled top City staff and asked them to join me in focusing on the important issues in front of our city -- reducing crime, attracting jobs and businesses, getting through another tough budget year and moving Dallas forward.

I will not be discussing this issue further.

These comments would have gotten a far better reception had our Interim Mayor agreed to the immediate release of the police records/audio recording. Having battled to keep it under wraps for this long, not so much.

How much tax-dollar employee time was used up by him and his personal mess when he "assembled top City staff" this morning so he could put a paintbrush over his mess?

He says it's "time to move on."This reminds me so much of Betty Culbreath's rants regarding Caraway's giving of keys to Michael Vick.She kept telling us that it was done and over with and time to move on.hmmmmmmmmm.That's what people say when they do not want to face the music.

"I've alerted the grammar police, they will be here shortly, everyone just remain calm "

Sparky: Have the grammar police bring a semicolon, a period and a cap wrench.Warmly, Commatose

"This morning, I assembled top City staff and asked them to join me in focusing on the important issues in front of our city......even though I tossed half of them under the bus yesterday."

There.

Fixed it.

We'll never know for sure if he dressed up like a French maid and had his wife paddle his fanny and things just got a little out of control. Not for sure. And really, it's none of our business. People's prurient prying into the lives of others never ceases to amaze and disgust me. And maybe they like did something naughty with a feather duster, too.

"It's time to move on" is always code for "damn, I wish they'd stop making me look stupid"

"It's time to move on" - isn't that what Eddie Berniece Johnson said after she got caught with her hand in the cookie jar?

I think there is a lot of public interest in the information, like the fact that you lied, showed remarkably poor judgement in how you handled it and the fact that you asked for and received special treatment from the police.

It is time to move on, it's time to move on without you, your incredibly poor judgement and grasp of the truth that you have showed time after time.

"There is no public interest in this information"

Well, look, his wife is an elected official and if she's unstable then the public has a right to know. Obviously he realized that it was of interest to the public thus the cover up.

How about reducing the DV crime in the Caraway household by pressing charges?

Dwayne, Dwayne, Dwayne. You have lost what ever credibility you had, your man card is revoked (twice over), and you call the head cop on his private line to keep your wife from probably performing 'percussive maintenance' upside your head. You want to move forward but you have been metaphorically tripped by your own pants on the ground.

Jack, perhaps a benefit event to pay for their moving expenses would be appropriate ;)

I was going to mention the very same thing, but didn't want to be the biggest geek in the room. Besides, I hear the guys on the Ticket make the same error twice a day, so I'm kind of immune.
