Rep. Dawnna Dukes Exposed Tonight!

Rep. Dawnna Dukes, who voted to toll Austin freeways, is the focus of a KEYE news investigative report tonight at 10pm. From BORs Matt Glazer:

According to the previews aired yesterday, Dukes is running a defunct company that has accepted state dollars, her car has been repossessed, and subcontractors have sued her for non-payment.
Early voting starts this week, if you know anyone who lives in East Austin, make sure they vote for Brian Thompson to fire double tax toller Dukes. I'll get the report on youtube, and post it here tomorrow.

UPDATE: It looks like some good investigative reporting from a blogger on Dukes and Catellus could be what the story tonight is about.

And a google search shows Dukes company,
DM DUKES & ASSOCIATES, INC. is a contractor for TxDOT?!

let us not forget a complaint has been filed against her for improperly reported around 90k credit card charges on her campaign. I am not a fan of the statesman, but the article is found on this link: http://www.statesman.com/blogs/content/shared-gen/blogs/austin/politics/entries/2008/01/29/complaint_filed_against_dukes.html

What took so long to investigate her? This blog has been reporting on her "improprieties" for a long time. Hell, what else do you need when you see the video of her in front of a slot machine in Vegas???
Or, better yet, her brazen stance in the face of an honest question from Sal. Let the fun begin.
