UT's RIDICULOUS Contract to "Investigate" Schwertner Accusation

"You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness."
Exodus 23:1

From yesterday's DMN:
AUSTIN — The University of Texas investigation into whether state Sen. Charles Schwertner sent sexually explicit text messages to a graduate student could last as long as 11 months and cost the school as much as $50,000, according to a contract between the university and the outside counsel hired to investigate.

The University of Texas signed a contract with former federal prosecutor Johnny Sutton beginning Sept. 24 with an end date of Aug. 31, 2019. However, the contract could be terminated earlier or amended to be extended.
Is this a joke?!?

Nothing in this allegation requires an ELEVEN MONTH investigation.  All they have to do is determine of the alleged photo actually comes from a phone of which Charles Schwertner ever had possession.  Frankly, there's no reason this investigation should have already been completed.

On the other hand, if UT's objective was to launch a fishing expedition (complete with curiously timed press leaks) that would last through next session against a Senator who's historically been a thorn in their side, well....

Bottom Line: Last month, we proposed a cynical hypothesis about this accusation; you be the judge....
