WOAI-TV exposes a romantic relationship between David Garcia, a San Antonio city councilman, and a female judge. The story reveals that the councilman made more money than any other court-appointed attorney in Bexar County because the judge appointed him to an immense number of cases as a defense attorney. According to the contest questionnaire, "the investigation proved the judge and the councilman ... share a bank account, shared an address at one time, and possibly committed fraud together."
