Indictment of ex-treasurer

I don't see how this indictment and it coming out now would really hurt the Democrats in Bexar County.

Its not like no one knew about this.  This splashed across the news 10-12 months ago.  Only folks who haven't ever had to wade through the nightmare of auditing accounts and determining where funds went and whether they were misspent sit there and cry politics. It takes a while to figure out what happened and to amass the evidence needed to secure a conviction.

Kudos to the white-collar section of the Bexar County DA's office for putting this all together.

Former Bexar County Democratic Party Treasurer Dwayne Eugene Adams was indicted Wednesday on charges that he embezzled and misused about $202,000 of party funds.

Adams, 55, could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of theft between $100,000 and $200,000 and misapplication by a fiduciary between $100,000 and $200,000. Each charge is a second-degree felony.

The grand jury action came as little surprise, Democratic Party officials acknowledged.
