Strengthening Anti-corruption Laws and Oversight


WHEREAS Texas suffers from endemic public corruption, lack of oversight, and reliable penalties for public officials engaging in corrupt acts,


AND WHEREAS corrupt acts by public officials include graft, nepotism, white collar crime, and other fiduciary malfeasance and mismanagement,


AND WHEREAS public corruption impedes economic progress for all communities, weakens public safety, and tears at the social fabric,


THEREFOR, BE IT RESOLVED that the Democratic Party calls on Democratic leadership to make anti-corruption measures a top priority of the Democratic Party Platform,


AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that anti-corruption measures be drafted for consideration and ultimate enactment.


ADOPTED UNANIMOUSLY at the Bexar County Democratic Party Convention on March 24, 2108.
