Texas Legislators Vote For Other Members-AGAINST THE HOUSE RULES

2 October 2007 at 12:40:10 PM

One Lawmaker-Many Voters. It isn't even that the Texas Legislators, both Democrat and Republican are caught on camera voting for others than themselves (where the person who's supposed to be there voting ... is not) but the justification Debbie Riddle gives about why it's okay to break the House rules. After all, she whines, It's NECESSARY, we have long days, wah, even working through lunch, wah. Hey, Sis. How about you do some other JOB than this if you can't follow the rules? Especially ironic when it's Riddle who pushed the voter id bill that would require that the voter show a photo id-doesn't count when you're, um, in government, which of course puts you Above the Common Man.

I didn't see or hear Sid Miller mentioned on this, but as the video shows, who knows if your own legislator is even casting his or her own vote????? And the Texas Lege is NOT dishing out penalties for those who are breaking this rule-that is CRADDICK's job to enforce it.

3 - pstern   7 Dec 2007 @ 9:07:39 AM  it is interesting to note that 2 years ago attorney general abbotts office hired one additional attorney whose job only is to review and enforce the rules of "open government".

ive written abbott several times asking why this attorney isnt doing the job heshe is supposed to do.

naturally, i have not received any response from the office regarding this issue.

meanwhile, laws have been approved that are supposed to enforce compliance from legislators to ensure "open government", e.g., one of which is to get elected officials to "attend class instruction" on the topic.

in my opinion, as long as gov. perry continues to play his brand of "closed-door" politics and permits his "lieutenants" to do the same, texas politics will remain in the muck created by wealthy special interests. all these placebo laws and cures wont matter much.
