A clear & perfect example of why the “Texas Ethics Commission” is unethical & needs replacing – Pratt on Texas 6/26/2024

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: A fine from the so-called Texas Ethics Commission of Harris County’s leftist Judge Lina Hidalgo demonstrates well how political and UNethical is the body that parades around with ethics in its name. All it takes is a comparison of Hidalgo’s fine, for doing something that is also a Class A misdemeanor in the state’s Penal Code, to that handed down to a local pastor who ran for office in Abilene. Unethical, capricious, and disgusting. The TEC should be done away with in the Sunset process next year and reformed with a proper name such as the Office of Campaign Finance Rules.

Our Lone Star story of the day is sponsored by Allied Compliance Services providing the best service in DOT, business and personal drug and alcohol testing since 1995.

U.S. Supreme Court

U.S. Supreme Court puts a fundamental aspect of American Exceptionalism in jeopardy by dismissing Big Tech free speech case on standing. Alito makes it very clear that standing was easily identifiable.

Overspending is what hinders Texas public school district budgets, not funding which has grown massively.

Comment on Abilene’s budgeting and suggestion of a property tax increase. The city manager is using the TML taught scare tactic claiming that police cuts will have to be made without considering any of the other ample city bureaucracy.
