Allen City Council candidate Dave Cornette under fire for alleged criminal history, anti-Muslim

Allen City Council candidate Dave Cornette under fire for alleged criminal history, anti-Muslim Facebook posts


Allen City Council candidate Dave Cornette is under fire after a series of social media posts under his name resurfaced, along with revelations of an alleged criminal history.

The latter was first posted to the r/Allen community on Reddit on Friday afternoon, a post which used screenshots to allege that Cornette has an active felony warrant and was previously charged with crimes related to prostitution, domestic violence and delinquency in child support payments.

Records show that some of these charges were dismissed.

The Place 3 candidate addressed these revelations in a Facebook post the following day in which he admitted to doing “some foolish things” and serving six months probation for unspecified crimes. He said despite this checkered legal history, he received an honorable discharge under honorable conditions from the U.S. Army and continues to pay child support to his ex-wife.

“You may have seen or heard about posts from a Reddit group about my past,” he said. “Some years [following the honorable discharge], I was divorced, fell behind in my child support payments and was arrested. I continue to repay my ex-wife every month. Since moving to Texas more than a decade ago, I have served at several VFW posts, been appointed to several boards and commissions. These experiences makes [sic] me empathetic to others. This country is a land of second chances and, having resolved these past issues, I am ready to continue serving.”
