Truth or Consequences

Jon Lindsay is an admitted liar and an accused perjurer. Should Harris County voters take him at his word - again?

With Tony Lindsay off in the professional world, you get the sense her husband feels just a little left behind.

"That's another reason for running," he acknowledges. "She doesn't come home till 6:30, 7:30 most of the time, because of where she is and what she's doing. I need to be doing something on my own." Naturally, after 20 years in office, the something that feels most natural is an elective position, the past be damned.

"I've taken everything they could throw at me," says Lindsay quietly. "And I recognize that some people are going to believe that crap. But there's nothing I can do about it. There's always gullible people out there."

That's a sentiment with which Lindsay nemesis Pete Brewton agrees, but he believes that it's the gullibility of voters Lindsay is banking on for yet another lease on political life.

"If those people in northwest Harris County want him, they'll get him," says Brewton with a sad laugh. "The thing is that they'll inflict him again on all the rest of us, too.
