AUSTIN - Controversy in the Capital after state officials admit to deleting scores of public information databases from former Texas House Speaker Tom Craddick's computers.  

Officials say unless Craddick specifically requested them, computer hard drives and electronic records in his offices were deleted and wiped clean.   

The revelation raises concerns that important public records may have been destroyed.  

Craddick dropped out of the speaker's race last month returning the State house as a rank-and-file Representative.
