Texas Senate holds hearings on state forensic commission

The Texas Senate Committee on Criminal Justice met this morning to question Williamson County District Attorney John Bradley who was recently appointed by Gov. Rick Perry to head the Texas Forensic Science Commission.

The meeting was broadcast live over the web and can be accessed here. One of the highlights was Houston's own state clown, er... senator, Dan Patrick, pooh-poohing the notion that the committee should look into whether or not junk science led to the execution of an innocent man.
