Joe Straus says he has votes to be re-elected Texas House speaker~

RIP the Rino – No Pledge to Joe Straus

The question is what did he promise for that vote. We are hearing reports from State Reps. that Joe Straus has given them key Committee assignments. How could they vote against him? The challenge is that is against the law.  

Are you as tired as I am of elected officials ignoring the rules and the laws of the land? 

Pledging support to Speaker Straus based on an appointment of a committee chairmanship is a VIOLATION OF SECTION 302.032 
Sec. 302.032. LEGISLATIVE BRIBERY: PROMISES OR THREATS. A person commits an offense if, with the intent to influence a member of or candidate for the house of representatives in casting a vote for speaker of the house of representatives, the person:(1) promises or agrees to cause:(A) the appointment of a person to a chairmanship or vice-chairmanship of a house committee or subcommittee;(B) the appointment of a person to a particular house committee or subcommittee, the Legislative Budget Board, the Texas Legislative Council, the Legislative Library Board, the Legislative Audit Committee, or any other position the speaker appoints;(C) preferential treatment on any legislation or appropriation;(D) the employment of a person; or(E) economic benefit to a person; or(2) threatens to cause:(A) the failure to appoint a person to a chairmanship or vice-chairmanship of a house committee or subcommittee;(B) the failure to appoint a person to a particular house committee or subcommittee, the Legislative Budget Board, the Texas Legislative Council, the Legislative Library Board, the Legislative Audit Committee, or any other position the speaker appoints;(C) unfavorable treatment on any legislation or appropriation;(D) the refusal of or removal from employment of a person; or(E) the withholding of economic benefit from a person.

Acts 1985, 69th Leg., ch. 479, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1985.  

If you are ready to take a stand call your State Representative today  Here is a list of them. Tell them to vote for the most Conservative Candidate in the Race for Speaker; David Simpson and then join us in Austin Jan. 7th and 8th.

  1. John McIntyre Says:

    Wayne Christian and his wife were attacked by Chris paddie and the Texas Trial Lawyer’s Association. WC refused to raise taxes to give retired teachers raises. WC was not endorsed by the Teachers Union pac and paddie was recorded on the Texas Tribune saying he would consider raising gasoline taxes to pay for benefits. Paddie and Murphy Turner asssociates are in bed with Joe Straus, who came to Marshall for an invitation only meeting.Oust Straus for 24 Billion reasons, 14 billion projected,franchise taxes and 25 million racetrack. Now straus brings gambling to the Marshall chamber of commerce to get the raises for teachers. Jumbotrons in Carthage,Panola County and raises for teachers.Decrease debt by Ousting Straus. Call your state senator to sponsor the George Lavender open carry gun law,since my senator Kevin Eltife refuses to sponsor it for SD1. God Bless Texas! John McIntyre

    […] Could that be because it is illegal for a State Representative to vote for a Speaker in return for a committee assignment? […]
