County Blocks Access to John Wiley Price This Morning at Commissioners Court

John Wiley Price, shoving WFAA reporter Brett Shipp last year, in the days before Price's reputation was sullied by corruption allegations in an FBI affidavit.
Most Tuesdays when the Dallas County Commissioners Court ends, reporters throng the dais to pepper the commissioners with questions. The question that was on the tip of everyone's tongue this morning was "Hey John Wiley Price. Did you really embezzle and launder all that money like the FBI guy said?"

For the moment, though, we'll just have to imagine his answer since reporters were blocked from approaching the commissioners.

My favorite part is this nugget from DMN's Kevin Krause:

Jenkins answered angry questions from TV news reporters after the meeting, saying the restrictions were needed to "keep order in the court." He gave the impression the added measure was taken because WFAA-TV reporter Brett Shipp tried to get into the closed session conference room last week.

Answers will come soon enough in a another type of court entirely.

Clay Jenkins, "the weezil", needs to keep playing  step n fetch it for the master of the court while I am patient waiting to see them both booted out of county government.

Isn't Clay Jenkins the same dim-wit who tolerates JWP when he verbally assaults anyone who questions him down there? We're finally going to be rid of Price soon....Jenkins is next.

If anyone hasn't figured it out yet, Clay Jenkins is nothing more than JWP's BITCH.  Polite people call Jenkins the sock puppet. Remember, Jenkins is the one who campaigned for this office under the premise of "open and transparent government".  Look how that has worked out.  Saying this and then doing that.

Maybe WFAA should try inviting John Wiley Price to appear next Sunday morning on Inside Texas Politics so his boy Gromer Jeffers Jr can lob the appropriate soft balls. They can even rope off the set to keep Brett Shipp out.

makes me wonder if the rest of the Comm. court has something to hide.

There is no court in which to keep order once the court has adjourned.

..instead of ropes County Commish should put up bars between them and the public -- it will help them get used to the view they'll have after the FBI and federal prosecutors finish their work.
