SD5: First a correction. In yesterday’s report about the Univ. of Texas’s investigation of explicit text messages allegedly sent by Sen. Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown), we erroneously said an undergraduate student was the recipient of those alleged messages. She is a graduate student. We have corrected that report and regret the error.

Since then, attorneys representing Sen. Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown) issued a statement saying he “did not send any inappropriate texts as alleged. Period.” Schwertner is “devastated over these allegations and is concerned for the unnamed victim,” according to the statement.
