The Houston City Attorney has released the results of an investigation into City Council Member JOLANDA JONES <<< click link to read report.
This is a breaking story and I’ll have more information shortly.
If you recall, Jones came under fire in February for allegedly using her position as a city council member to solicit clients for her law practice.
Council member Jones passed out fliers at a town hall meeting that discouraged people from speaking with the police. More troubling, said critics, Jones listed her personal AND council phone numbers on the cards.
Jones insisted at the time that she did nothing wrong.
The OIG report tells a different story.
Meanwhile, Jones has released this statement, “I have just received this report and will comment further once I have reviewed it. I hold myself and my staff to the highest ethical standards. I look forward to clearing up any misunderstandings with respect to this report as expeditiously as the process permits.”
