TWCNews: Austin Council Exempts Itself, Staff From Ethics Review

New Council Member Alison Alter made a change that “exempted the entire City Council and their staffs from being subject to punishment for ‘interference with personnel matters.’”

There were allegations that Council Member Pool personally pressured city staff, yelled at them, and attempted to intimidate them to take positions against The Grove development. Could this be a direct result from that so they can continue to pressure city staff without any ethical oversight?
