.U.S. senator goes on trial for official misconduct, cover-up
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -
Just months after a landslide victory,
U.S. Sen. Kay Hutchison will stand
trial today on criminal charges of mis-
using her former office of state trea-
surer and then trying to cover it up.
Facing the possibility of conviction
and prison, Hutchison, a rising Repub-
lican star, has denied doing anything
*wrong "legally, morally or ethically."
She says she is a victim of Demo-
crats who fear and resent her success.
In four indictments, however, pros-
ecutors from the Travis County district
attorney's office say the real victims
are state taxpayers cheated by
Hutchison has been charged with
using tax dollars for her personal and
political gain when she was treasurer, a
position she held from January 1991 to
June 1993. Prosecutors say she ran
political operations out of the Trea-
sury, using office employees and com-
puters on state time.
When investigators got wind of it,
they say, she started changing perma-
nent computerrecords to hide evidence.
The indictments charge her with
two felony counts and one misdemeanor
count ofofficial misconduct, and felony
counts of tampering with a govern-
ment record and tampering with physi-
Since the alleged offenses are being
tried together, prosecutors say
Hutchison, if convicted on all counts,
could face up to 20 years in prison.
"This case is not about politics,"
said First Assistant District Attorney
Steve McCleery. "This case is about
ethics in government. It is not a politi-
cally motivated case."
The trial has its roots in an April
1992 article by The Houston Post, which
reported that David Criss, then policy
and planning director for the Treasury,
was using a Treasury computer for
Hutchison's campaign fund-raising.
Hutchison admitted that a small
amount of non-state work was done on
the state computer. But she said she
hadn't known about it and would take
steps to make sure it didn't happen
again. Criss apologized and resigned.
The Travis County district attorney's
office also concluded that no evidence
indicated Hutchison had any knowl-
edge of the misuse of Treasury comput-
But in May 1993, the investigation
was rekindled. Former aides accused
Hutchison of requiring them to do per-
sonal and political business on state
