The Austin American-Statesman after the Willie Lewis campaign asserted that Eric Mitchell had missed over 25 percent of city council votes in seven months, the Statesman performed their own detailed study of council voting records - and consequently provided the ammunition which helped sink their own endorsed candidate. The Statesman's detailed chart chronicling the voting records of all seven councilmembers covered an entire year and showed without a doubt that Mitchell was the worst offender on the dais in absences and abstentions. The meticulous research and willingness to print the damaging results are applauded - and appreciated - by the Chronicle.
