UT officials make allegations against Sen. Schwertner look to be a political hit job

Pratt on TexasAn allegation has been made against state Senator Charles Schwertner by a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin. Schwertner is a strong conservative leader in Austin, is an orthopedic surgeon, and is a family man living in Georgetown. He serves currently as the chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee in the senate.

According to the Austin American-Statesman, a student met the senator at an on-campus event at which he was speaking and she expressed interest in working in the legislature. It goes on that the two then exchanged messages via the work-related site LinkedIn. According to the paper’s report the student claims that via text message: “During an otherwise professional exchange on networking and career advice, Schwertner abruptly wrote, “I just really want to f—- you,” and sent her an image that appeared to be a picture…” of his private parts.

No matter what the non-criminal on-campus investigation reveals, all semblance of impartiality and motive has been spoiled because of “UT officials” leaking it to the press before any real investigating had been done.

Senator Schwertner learned of the potential reputation and family ruining allegation from the newspaper which had it leaked to them by “three senior UT officials.”

Schwertner has rightly hired lawyers and has already issued a statement of complete denial hinting that evidence exists to prove the allegation untrue.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick has issued a statement of concern over the matter and obviously noticed what I did. He wrote “I was also concerned yesterday to see that numerous University of Texas officials spoke to the media, potentially jeopardizing the integrity of a serious investigation.”

No matter what the non-criminal on-campus investigation reveals, all semblance of impartiality and motive has been spoiled because of “UT officials” leaking it to the press before any real investigating had been done. This makes the entire affair appear to be nothing but a political hit job.

  1. He might have been hacked. Of course, that would only need to be considered, if they are able to produce evidence of this “text messaging” through LinkedIn. There is always a record on the internet.
