"Here in a few minutes unless you just tell me my headsets when he's ready to go it will jump to give them to him very quickly so law a newly filed complaints now claims of Williamson County judge bill Gravelle is isn't following his own stay at home order we talked about this a little bit the other day but now official complaint is been filed attorney Robert McCabe claims the same day gravel okay extended that order last Tuesday yeah we attended his grandson's birthday party now McCabe said he filed a complaint after social media photos show him mom gravel Gravelle prevail all right we got a home dressed in firefighter gear yeah he had a deputy from Williamson County drive him up to a firehouse in general to get the uniform then go to the birthday party in the unified partner kind of a cute thing to show off to the kids I guess but very inappropriate at this time and and and it would be inappropriate any time really yeah usually if you think about it even in times are good using the resources of a deputy to drive you out there get the uniform that the fire department needs and then you I mean it just seems kind of smarmy small town good old boy kind of stuff as it is but in the midst of a stay at home order that's bad he could face a thousand dollar fine and possibly jail time you don't you don't use county tax money and at taxpayer money and resources and and money for something like this it for him to be a judge we would expect him to have good judgment it looks like his judge me that is absolutely nonexistent should he resign I think you can make a reasonable case that he should he certainly I mean it would be bad enough in good times to to to use county resources that way but in the midst of a pandemic on the very same day that you issue an order that does take a shot at your credibility well he certainly it needs to go public with a a public apology pay a fine I don't know if jailed I think jail time might be a little bit much because he's not a threat to society in anyway and it's also right now the pure people we have in jail at the safer you know with the given the pandemic and all that but certainly fine certainly public apology it is far as resigned I'm not sure of a public apology is enough that's at the very least is what he should do but this will be swept under the rug it will be forgotten it's been handed over to the county attorney and it in their good old boys they're they're good body posture county attorneys had its own controversy in Williamson County in years past involving some you know some of some relationships in the office and giving us a young lady a promotion that sort of thing yeah and actually led to you know a break up of the family at one point so right so there's a lot of dirty stuff behind the scenes going on with this right right you know I'll be forgotten but I just wonder what gives a county residents why should you take this serious when your own county judge that issued the orders and tells you to stay home isn't following it themselves it does it does put into question other things you know if if his judgment is that poor with that simple equation of here's to order the the the recommendation in order so I put out yet I'm not going to practice and if if he completely is oblivious to to that the what else would he be oblivious to you know what I mean what else what he what he hears what he tried to do he called the district attorney Shawn Dick to reach out to this attorney that brought it brought this story public Mr McCabe the attorney so what the judge called the DA to call McCabe to get the pictures taken down off social media in a way he kind of admitted to what he was doing in that call phone call buddy he doesn't understand the technology it wasn't even McCabe's tweets it was somebody at the party these tweets yeah exactly so now he's got a lot of egg on his face a lot of embarrassment any should at the very very least pay a fine and apologise to look like absolutely and I don't know I don't know should should somebody resigned because they went to their kids birthday party you know in a way you know using city resources bye bye but is and certainly not jail come on that that's that down on jelly no no no but in the midst of a pandemic I think you should yeah eight twenty two here all the time have don join joining us on the live news line from the great state of Texas senator John Cornyn is with us hello senator how you doing good good morning I'm doing great I hope you're doing well we're doing well and what we want to get back into business we want to open up this economy yeah what what are your thoughts on that and how it could happen well I think it's gonna happen this sort of approach to how we got to where we are now I think so I think you know our federal system of government where we have a central government the federal government but we also have sovereign states and cities and local governments they can adjust based on the conditions and we all know that Texas is not New York and many places because of high congestion international travel why because experience what works of course experience of this of this virus but I know what so what governor Abbott is doing and mayor Adler and others they are not staying in touch with thinking about okay how do we how do we begin to gradually open back up one idea would be that if some of the staff tells the epic laboratories has that but I could cook when I went to the White House about a week and a half ago they made me do that in order to sit in the cabinet room with the president quietly so I might as well take my temperature twice both of the sorts of things we can do to re open it gets back to business because if you can do that safely with the closing out of state I think our businesses can come up with some ideas about how they can begin to reopen and bring our people back on the job absolutely now are small businesses are still tapping into that that three hundred and forty nine billion dollars to help keep the focus on the pay roll the possibilities of more money on the way as well but a lot of our school districts our education system is really been put to the test in all of this more kids are at home laptops are needed and several schools in the central Texas area will receive a total of about one eighty five million dollars as part of federal grants tell us about that and how that money could workers to help with education what we are the money is as you point out is grants trying to help so you know what this disruption we know that a lot of schools course had to cancel the rest of the school year basically all of them move clears online and then obviously after work you can make sure they have the curriculum they need in order to continue their studies at home under the watchful eye of the currents right so under the cures act passed with two point two trillion dollar bill we passed in the final couple weeks will provide a quick glance and a number of those are now being announced we're now sealed around the state to help provide some relief from their financial disruption associated with this fire and a lot of this money is going to some of our higher education centers the Austin community college Houston Tillotson St Edward's UT southwestern Texas state are going to be getting some help as well that's right it's not just it's not your concern well it's our community colleges and in our four year universities and so hopefully that that will help you learn you know the main goal is to make sure all of these institutions all these businesses because they are business can not functioning when we began this process for re opening so we can bounce back in a in another story while we have you were up against the clock here the president she has decided to withhold some funds for the weld World Health Organization basically saying they have done a very good job in this pandemic your thoughts is isn't a good move during this time just your general thoughts on on that idea I think the president right to put a shot across the bow they become way through our political way too close to China and they were silent was kind of hiding information that if we had known about it earlier we would have been a better position to prepare for and defeat this virus but the W. T. R. W. H. O. I believe was complicit and that they need to they need to change their ways and and the form letter that P. P. P. money that paycheck protection money is going to be running out in a matter of days is there going to be another stimulus package we gonna be able to get past those hurdles and getting it to print you're right on the R. thirty were estimating the money will run out at the court this is a bipartisan program book paycheck protection program that Nancy Pelosi and and the White House and country were and and all of us agree to but now it's running out of money and she's saying it's not enough to replenish that money focused bipartisan program that's been very successful they want extract another pound of flesh and other spending there's some start time for this and I hope she comes around comes first you're gonna have a lot of unhappy all small businesses that are going to have to declare bankruptcy or permanently shut their doors well heck senator she tried to impeach a president for withholding funds from the Ukraine and now she's withholding funds from the American people there are two double standard unfortunately all too common Washington story yeah senator Cornyn thank you so much for being on a tide of don should we appreciate you have a great day absolutely it is eight twenty seven here all the time to don show the tide in gun show Jefferies here along with don prior you looking to sell a home looking to buy a home.
