In an Unethical and Despicable Move, Lawmakers Cover the Governor's Butt

Lawmakers Cover the Governor's Butt

Legislators changed the law to overturn the court decision that Perry must open his travel records to the public.

According to an article in the Austin American-Statesman,

"In a swift last-minute change, the Texas House and Senate today approved changing state law to allow most travel records concerning Gov. Rick Perry’s bodyguards to remain secret — three days after a state appeals court ordered them made public.

State Sen. Jeff Wentworth, R-San Antonio, said House and Senate negotiators added wording in the final version of House Bill 1068 to overturn a Third Court of Appeals decision on Friday."

Lawmakers can't get anything done to benefit the Texas community, but they sure can band together to cover for Gov. Rick Perry.

This is what I have stated for years. Sen. Jeff Wentworth is as corrupt and unethical a politician as they come. So are most other long-time incumbent lawmakers. It is time Texans vote out these corrupt politicos.

What are they all afraid of? That the people can openly see how corrupt and unethical they are? This manipulation of the judicial system and changing the law publicly shows Texans exactly why so little gets done in the Texas Legislature to benefit most Texans.

What lawmakers have done is unethical and despicable.

Vote out these special interest incumbent bums in the next several elections!
