Speaking in tongues

PDiddie and WCNews have some goodness up about the Speaker's race. Phillip has updated numbers on Craddick/Not Craddick votes.

Finally, Coby has a great post about the ethics complaint filed against Craddick for funneling money to his kid... and keeping her on his taxpayer funded health insurance.

PhotobucketOver the last few months State Representatives Eissler and Isett have been heavily fined by the Texas Ethics Commission for using their campaign cash to pay their spouses and dependents for services. They both claimed ignorance and at least one claimed House Speaker Craddick was doing it also. And for good reason.

Craddick has paid his daughter Christi over $650,000 since 2003 for "salary", $133,000 in 2007 and $110,000 for the first 10 monts of 2008. As Isett and Eissler has learned, the Ethics Commission rules prohibits payments to
dependents.

My daddy never paid me that well. Probably because I'm all the time stuck in traffic. Or speeding.
