On shady deals (and shady dealmakers?)

Several days ago, Texas Monthly posted a web preview of a story that will appear in its June 2009 issue about State Rep. Allen Fletcher of Tomball and some of his shady business associates.

True to form, lazy Chronicle columnist Rick Casey has a column that recaps the Texas Monthly piece (but doesn't link to it) and "adds" snippets of his own interview with Rep. Fletcher. At least he didn't plagiarize, this time. Attribution isn't that hard, even if originality can be.

Blogger and blogHOUSTON commenter Rorschach has posted on the Fletcher business here and here. The latter post is particularly interesting.
