Dallas Councilman Pleads Guilty, Resigns
Dallas City Councilman Dwaine Caraway pled guilty to federal corruption charges last Thursday and has resigned from City Council.
Caraway admitted to accepting $450,000 in bribes and kickbacks from two figures in a scandal last year that brought down a school bus agency named Dallas County Schools.
City Attorney Larry Casto told City Council a special election must be added to the November 6 election to fill the vacancy.
