So Did Your Texas House Representative Violate the law?

“Doc” Holladay asks a great question…..

“So did your Texas House representative violate the law when he/she signed a pledge card for Joe Struas and thus caused his “speakership” and all the chairmanships of the House Committees?

As the kids say – just asking – maybe you should also.”
