Summary The Dallas Observer reports on City Attorney Robin Page who was investigated by the police department for allegedly taking bribes from slumlords. No evidence of wrong-doing was ever found against her and Page says the department used media leaks to pin her as the scapegoat for the department's own failures. Despite her innocence, Page was demoted back to an entry-level job and plans to file a lawsuit against the city.
