The land scandal may
be the Sharpstown scandal of the early 1970's that brought down a group of state politicians around the then-speaker of the Texas house, Gus Mutscher. I think that was the time that Sissy Farenthold became semi-famous in Texas politics, along with the Daniel family, for standing up to the "players".
Estes was from south Texas and played down there. As I recall, grain was his medium of play.
Oh that’s it, Sharpstown. I’m sure I’m confusing things. You should write a book about Texas politics. It seems to me you know and remember all these things from 40-50 years ago. That’s very impressive to me, as my memory goes all the way back to day before yesterday.
