A caller from Hallsville, Texas raised a legitimate concern this afternoon about the title and the tagline for LawFlog, so I’d like to clarify a few things. I came up with the idea for this blog long before I heard the allegations against Steve Mulkey. Over the years, I’ve accrued a lot of evidence that certain lawyers and judges can break the law and get away with it just because they are powerful and well connected. If you want to get an idea of the kind of stuff I’m talking about, Google the name of former federal judge Samuel Kent. Over the coming months, I plan to air some similar stories.
It was purely a coincidence that Coach Mulkey became the first subject of my blog. If we prove our case against him, then I think we will have proved that he needed a good flogging. But we are not there yet. That said, the decision to air the allegations against Mulkey was not made lightly. I’ve known the ladies making the allegations since I moved to Union Grove in the third grade, and I believe them. I also believe the other women who have contacted me since this became public.
