Hood County Judge Ron Massingill is calling on Precinct 4 Commissioner Dave Eagle, County Clerk Katie Lang and other fellow Republicans who alleged that former Elections Administrator Michele Carew broke the law to publicly apologize after the attorney general issued an opinion that Massingill said “totally vindicates” her.

“I think they owe Michele Carew an apology because that’s what caused her to quit,” he said of Carew’s departure last year after months of criticism that included calls for her to be fired or for her non-partisan position to be eliminated.
