The dilemma exists not because Lynn Austin sent the emails using a city email address. It exists because Austin told Channel 6 that he 'made a mistake' by sending 30-40 emails from the wrong outlook account. Channel 12 followed up and reported on the 16,000 emails that had been sent out in January. Here's the dilemma - does Austin admit that he was not being forthcoming in the Channel 6 interview, or does he continue to say that he made a mistake.
That is hard to buy into because the emails he sent out had the city email address listed at the bottom of the page. That isn't a mistake or accidental. This brings on the third prong of the dilemma - does he just attempt to stonewall it and say nothing about it at all? None of these alternatives are attractive to him, but this won't go away until he manages in some manner to put it to rest.
Here is the letter; notice the email address listed at the bottom.
The other letter
Several people have asked me to publish another email that was sent out, this one went to about 30 members of the Republican Women of Bossier. I was provided the text of the letter to publish.
