Texas executive admits sexting on state phone

The woman who serves as the executive administrator of the Alamo, Texas' state shrine, has become embroiled in a public divorce proceeding. The case reached public attention after the woman's husband accused her of having an affair. He allegedly located adult photographs and text messages on the woman's phone and forwarded them to some of her contacts and coworkers. The woman admitted to using a state-issued cell phone to send these items to a man who was not her husband.

In response to the accusation, the administrator denies engaging in adultery and claims that her husband is simply trying to create a media circus surrounding their breakup. The couple has filed for divorce. The husband has asked for an examination of his wife's personal computer and questioning of the man with whom he alleges his wife had an affair. A hearing is set for June 24.

In the aftermath of this public breakup, some people are calling for the woman to resign. However, a state official states that she has done an outstanding job and that her divorce does not affect her ability to perform her job functions. However, the woman works for the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, an organization that was only contracted to administer the Alamo through June 30.

Divorce can be an emotional process. When one of the spouses is in the public eye, public pressures can make the process more frustrating. A local attorney who understands the process may be able to help remove some of that pressure by handling media inquiries. An attorney may also be able to help diffuse high-conflict situations by attempting to negotiate a resolution.
