We were working on an unrelated project when we came across this gem about Texas "Ethics" Commission vice-chair Paul Hobby:
He is a member of the UT Development Board, a life member of the Texas Exes and a former member of the UT Law School Foundation Board of Trustees (*). Hobby is a member of the Advisory Board for the University of Houston’s Hobby Center for Public Policy, named for Hobby’s father, Governor Bill Hobby.
