"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan."
Following Wallace Hall's 'censure,' Scott Turner released this statement:
I am disappointed by the decision of the House Select Committee on Transparency in State Agency Operations to censure University of Texas Regent Wallace Hall. Recently, Regent Hall openly questioned admission practices at the University; specifically, alleging favoritism was shown to students with direct connections to powerful members of the Texas House regardless of their eligibility. Favoritism in state funded university admissions is unethical and corrupt, and any evidence of such practices should be investigated fully by a university regent, as it is their job to oversee the university system. In my opinion, Regent Hall was simply executing his duties and should be supported in his efforts, rather than be censured and submitted to continuing impeachment proceedings which have already cost the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
