The Washington Blade reports that charges have been dropped against a Georgetown University student from Southlake who was accused of assualting a fellow student last fall while shouting anti-gay epithets.
The suspect, then-19-year-old Phillip Anderton Cooney, is the son of a former White House official, so one can’t help but wonder whether this was a “presidential pardon” of sorts. Here’s a link to the original story about the assault that appeared in Dallas Voice. But here’s all you really need to know about this family:
“The senior Cooney resigned from the White House in 2005 to become an ExxonMobil lobbyist after it was learned that he had altered reports to cast doubt on the link between greenhouse-gas emissions and global warming, according to reports.”
