Bush Requests Criminal Investigation Over Audit Critical Of Alamo Project

“We do have evidence that there is a doctored memo,” Bush told reporters this morning

Via Texas Public Radio reporter Ryan Poppe:

Texas General Land Commissioner George P. Bush is crying foul on a draft audit document critical of his handling of the Alamo Restoration Project. Now Bush is taking legal action against the parties that released the report because of some of the personal information within it.

The 23-page document dated September 2017 and first reported by the Austin-American Statesman said that the current nonprofit structure the General Land Office uses to oversee and fund the Alamo restoration project obscures how those funds are managed.

Bush said his office has evidence that only parts of the audit were released to the newspaper, and he claims the report is incomplete.

“We do have evidence that there is a doctored memo,” Bush told reporters following a speech at the Texas Public Policy Foundations annual Policy Orientation for the Texas Legislature conference on Friday.
