You mean this Harry Whittington?

quote:
It's been a tumultuous week for the Texas Funeral Service Commission. On Monday, Travis County District Court Judge John Dietz ruled that Gov. George W. Bush won't have to testify in Eliza May's whistle-blower lawsuit against the agency. On Tuesday, the old TFSC board was dismissed. On Wednesday, the new board, headed by Austin lawyer Harry Whittington, took over the struggling agency ... May, who was fired by the TFSC's board in February, claims that state legislators and Bush's office interfered with her agency's investigation in order to help SCI, the world's largest funeral company ... The appointment of Whittington appears to be a good move. [B]A well-respected lawyer, Whittington has served on other controversial state positions in the past, including a stint on the Board of Corrections, the precursor to the Board of Criminal Justice, which oversees the state's prison system. During his stint on that board, from 1979-1985, Whittington dealt with a number of difficult issues, including the Ruiz lawsuit, which forced the Texas prison system to institute a series of reforms and improve prison conditions. Whittington also served six years on the Texas Public Finance Authority, to which he was appointed by former Gov. Bill Clements. [/B]


Whittington seems to be a "fixer." I wonder what they were discussing, just before the gun went off?
