It is ironic that former State Land Commissioner Pat Lyons is calling for his fellow member Jerome Block Jr. of the Public Regulatory Commission to resign after more allegations of corruption and misuse of state funds. Remember that Junior's dad worked for Lyons during the heyday of sweet heart deals at the Land Office. Well, what will Senior now have to say about the goings on at the Land Office during Lyons administration? I can't wait to find out.
In the meantime it is time for the Legislature to start a constitutional amendment process to rid the state of this mostly useless elected Commission. I predicted this mess back when this Commission was created and in fact the quality of many of the candidates elected speaks for itself.
