Texas Standard for August 3, 2016

A state attorney raised concerns about laws being broken. She was fired – and then offered money not to sue. Now her story’s coming out. Plus: Days from now, Texas is set to put to death a man who didn’t actually kill anyone. We’ll hear why. Also: As the media spotlights a scuffle between Donald Trump and a Gold Star parent, one Texas soldier starts a conversation about the quiet struggles faced by most military parents. Plus: Oil slips back below the $40-a-barrel mark – and some sense a Saudi strategy to put the boot on Texas. And: Are there really two Mexicos? We’ll do the numbers. Don’t touch that dial, it’s Texas Standard time.
