As I'm sure is a great comfort to you all, I remain fully committed to solving the Case of the Mystery Dump, Turds at Tampongate, the Great Crap Caper, or whatever else you care to call it. The story develops here and here, and now an update from the Texas Observer. Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst participated in an extremely friendly interview with the Waco Tea Party where he claims to have seen the infamous containers of urine and feces with his own beady little eyes, sitting in plain view at the security checkpoints.
Though he's not since responded to any questions from actual news agencies about these comments, there's already a shit-load of doubt about what he's shoveling. First of all, the scene at the checkpoints was extremely well documented, and if he HAD been there, there'd be pictures and video of it. The protestors utterly despise this guy, they'd go berzerk if they saw him, and there's no way in hell that he's just strolling amongst them, inspecting their confiscated goods unnoticed. It's all the same lies from the same liars, but fuck me if they're not just terrible at it. I guess the good news is that they're not doing the smart thing and keeping their mouths shut, so hopefully this issue will continue getting attention.
Further bulletins as events warrant.
