Texas journalists have totaled the tab in the Polygamy-kids case. It tops out at over $14 million, with a third of that amount being attorney's fees (give or take a million or two.)
All of that as a result of one phone call from someone they can't even find, whose accusations cannot be corroborated.
Fourteen million is on helluva lot of clams. The state of Texas is cram full of tax-and-spend Democrats -- I'm surprised the Democrats aren't crying over the loss of money they could have used in their own pork barrels.
The State of Texas continues to say they are concerned that the kids are in imminent danger, yet Texas is filled to the brim with neighborhoods where kids have to cope daily with poverty, drugs, gangs, and teenage pregnancy. That's about as "imminent danger" as you can get. Fourteen million would have been better spent helping kids in The Barrios, rather than harassing a religious group.
