When Texas politics begin to smell, open window

When Texas politics begin to smell, open window: "More than 750 taxpayers received $461 million in tax credits and refunds from state Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn's office within a year of her receiving a campaign contribution from them or a related entity, according to a recent report from the state auditor. Their campaign contributions, made within that year, totaled $2 million.

Strayhorn says she did no tax favors for contributors, and the auditor's report said it was 'not implying any wrongdoing' by any taxpayers, their representatives or the comptroller.

Nevertheless, the findings smell bad."
