The Texas House Transparency Committee voted Monday to censure Wallace Hall, a member of the University of Texas System Board of Regents, for “misconduct, incompetency in the performance of official duties, or behavior unbefitting a nominee for and holder of a state office," The Texas Tribune reported. Hall has engaged in lengthy investigations, complete with mammoth document requests, of the University of Texas at Austin, and many have accused him of a witch hunt to try to force the ouster of President Bill Powers. Hall issued a statement saying that "the committee's findings are based on distortions, untruths, and intentional misrepresentations."
