Republican leadership is aggressively moving to punish several conservative lawmakers while also working to send a chilling message to incoming freshmen like Carrie Isaac, Terri Leo-Wilson, Nate Schatlzine, Mark Dorazio, Ellen Troxclair, and others.
The House GOP Caucus’ long-standing rule to “privately criticize and publicly praise” is being set aside in this rare occasion, as they move to censure Steve Toth, Jeff Cason, and Ben Leman. These men are all deemed guilty by the ruling elite for opposing their colleagues’ re-election campaigns.
It’s important to remember that Dustin Burrows targeted not one but 10 of his fellow colleagues last cycle and was NEVER punished for his actions (probably because they aligned with the desires of the ruling elite).
Why is this happening, and why does it matter to Texans?
This week, we discuss those very questions.
