DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas County commissioner says he plans to file a resolution seeking a sanction or censure against a fellow commissioner charged recently with accepting nearly $1 million in bribes.
Commissioner Mike Cantrell announced his plans Tuesday at the first commission meeting to be held since Commissioner John Wiley Price’s indictment on federal charges.
The Dallas Morning News reports (https://bit.ly/1y2NFsZ ) Cantrell as saying the allegations against Price amount to a “disappointing breach of trust.”
Federal authorities allege Price accepted the bribes in exchange for providing insider information and voting in favor of projects proposed by various companies. Price and three others have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Price is a well-known local leader in the Dallas area and has served on the commissioners’ court for more than 27 years.
