    Pretty Poor management on the City's part. From this reaction, its clear that at least some members of the council may have known this wasn't the best path to pursue.

    Control your leaks...but in the end you are accountable to the citizens of Galveston. That means all of the citizens of Galveston. If you don't want something like that getting out, either control the leaks or don't start down that path of policy exploration. Otherwise, be prepared for the reaction if it does.

    Its not the newspapers fault. You should have used better common sense by having another organization hire the lawyer and make the inquiry.

    Sounds like they need to call in Eric Holder

    Someone Else is to blame for our own inability to control our business, so let's make them the scapegoat(s) and draw attention away from ourselves.
    Council should be holding meetings in the Oval Office.

    This city attorney is going to take the council and the city over a cliff... If she is allowed. A meeting to decide to sue the news paper for printing stuff it got from you. Really?Although I know you will not, but council , get rid of this attorney before you/we get burned badly.

    Attack the reporter instead of the leaker? When was Eric Holder hired by COG CC?
    The reporter should make copies then give the originals received from (someone?) at city hall to the DA.

    Man, I wish more Galvestonians read the paper. This is the sort of incompetence all citizens need to be aware of. We can only hope that at least some of these small-time bumbling politicians and their minions will be ridden out on a rail in the next city elections. Those few that choose to seek re-election, that is. I can't imagine their wanting to showcase their embarrassment for another term.

    Good job, GDN.

    This is great! The Daily News has done just what big time newspapers do and got in there and found some political / city official dirt. And now they want to pursue legal action against you to plug their leak? Tell 'em to call E.Howard Hunt, he has some experienced plumbers. Oh, and change the locks on your office building quick.

    Yet again, city officials plan to squander the taxpayers money on lawyers, this time to do US Constitutional battle with a newspaper. Daniel Ellsberg is available for consultation work.

    Congratulations GDN, you have made it to the big time and I support your efforts (possibly for the first time...). Thank you for keeping the citizens informed.

    Totally agree, Ray. Ms. Palumbo is dangerous. I've heard of other issues that have arisen from her, as well.

    Wishing won't make it so, but boy, I wish Suzie Green was still here!

    Palumbo should be fired immediately. How dare her demand anything. She works for us!

    We'll see if the gang of 4 still holds true... someone needs to break from that group so that there will be 4 votes to take her out. Trouble is, I can't see the weak link. They've tied themselves together pretty tightly.

    How do we know it wasn't the lawyer that leaked the info. Gets his name in print now doesn't it.
