Gregg Cox to McCraw: Perry vetoing PIU funds prevents re-opening DPS investigation as you request
Cox: "“It is very timely that you should choose now to write me a letter pointing out that there is no other agency in state government that is equipped to investigate allegations concerning your department."
Integrity Unit director Gregg Cox
rejected DPS director Steve McCraw’s request for the investigation of alleged the
agency’s “No bid contract” to be resumed.
Cox noted at the time, Governor Rick
Perry’s veto of the funding for the Public Integrity Unit effectively
killed the investigation into an agency run by a Perry appointee and long time ally.
