An employee of House Speaker Joe Straus was allegedly caught this afternoon stealing campaign literature left by one of his opponents for the Republican primary nomination.
Straus currently represents House District 121 in Bexar County. Jeff Judson and Sheila Bean are challenging him for the GOP nomination.
In a Facebook message posted shortly after 5pm, Judson wrote:
ALERT: Joe Straus’ dirty tactics continue! Today one of my volunteers caught a Joe Straus campaign staffer stealing my campaign literature off voters’ doorsteps… redhanded. My volunteer confronted the culprit and he showed the stolen literature before he fled.
Just like he worked to keep legislation off the floor of the Texas House, it would appear Straus’ campaign doesn’t want voters knowing anything about his opposition.
