Larry Phillips Did It
Well, now I can share more details.
Larry Phillips, Vice Chairman of the House Ethics Committee for the State of Texas is the person identified as having threatened members of the State House.
If you recall, Speaker Joe Straus sent out Rep. Phillips to tell Republicans if they did not support Straus they would be drawn out of their House Districts.
Straus then said he’d have an investigation and sent the matter to the Ethics Committee where Larry Phillips serves as Vice Chair.
Well, Phillips was named at the very start of the meeting and has been forced to recuse himself.
Now there is that matter of the six members who took over $200,000.00 apiece from Straus and Straus allies and immediately signed pledge cards in support of Straus.
