The Craddick Imbroglio

It's rare that Texas is faced with a real constitutional crisis. But did Speaker Tom Craddick break the rules in how he ran the House? Supporters say he was just keeping those rowdy reps in line. Opponents called him a dictator. At the moment, it's all in the hands of Attorney General Greg Abbott, whose anticipated December decision may alter how the Capitol works.
