Old discussion from previous title[edit]

What is this? Is this "article" supposed to be about Tom Delay or the arrest of Helen Giddings? If the former, why the odd title? If the latter, why so much about DeLay and why not merge into Helen Giddings and Tom Delay? Tuf-Kat 21:32, Apr 5, 2005 (UTC)

This is where the article came from. Current name does not conform to naming conventions. Should also be de-overlapped with Tom Delay. Gazpacho 21:34, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)

This article should just be trashed. There is little of significant information, except for someone's position paper on the whole incident. The incident itself certainly doesn't qualify for it's own WikiPage.--TheGrza 02:22, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)

Since there is apparently no moderator action on VfD, I'm trying to turn this article into one on Helen Giddings, hoping that eventually a moderator will move it there. There appears to me to be a consensus for this on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Tom Delay arrested Helen Giddings. --BaronLarf 02:27, Apr 18, 2005 (UTC)

October 24, 2016 Edits[edit]

I noticed this article listed as one needing sources on the Texas or DFW Wiki projects. Having covered Giddings and the Legislature before, I elected to try to help this article.

Essentially, the biggest portion with remaining problems is now under "Legislative Accomplishment." That is all what was in the article when I got there to do the edits, and it is taking a long time to find all of the appropriate sources, so I will work on that ongoing. Nothing in that section is actually untrue, it is just that the sources are time consuming to find because of Texas legislative websites. I will work on finding sources for that ongoing.

I am not happy with the level of individual biographical data on the subject either, and will endeavor to find more to help fill the article out in terms of early biographical data from local news sources, or the Dallas Public Library vertical files.
