What a shame.

Max Glauben survived several Nazi concentration camps before being freed by U.S. forces and moving to Dallas. On Wednesday, the 86-year-old was about to head to one of his many speaking engagements when he found his car had been ransacked. My story from +The Dallas Morning News.

Lots of research, more reporting, plenty of investigating. The story of Ross Perot Jr.'s private land sale to the Texas Department of Transportation is told by #TheWatchdog  +Dave Lieber. The mini documentary about the report was produced by me, +Marina Trahan Martinez

Ross Perot Jr.'s development company struck a private deal with TxDOT, selling land for a major project at least a decade away when no other property owner could.
