In an email directed to Texas GOP House Members, Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey, and Republican Party of Texas Leadership, JoAnn Fleming called on them to speak out against current House Speaker Dennis and State Representative Dustin Burrow’s schemes to undermine GOP incumbents.
Fleming is the Executive Director Grassroots America – We the People PAC.
Fleming described the silence of Texas GOP leadership as “deafening”. The email that Fleming sent out serves as a “strong public nudge” in her view.
The Executive Director of Grassroots America commended Michael Quinn Sullivan, Tim Dunn and Empower Texans for bringing to light the audio recording of Bonnen and Burrows’ plot to attack GOP incumbents.
This same recording possibly incriminates Burrows and Bonnen for engaging in bribery, which BLP detailed earlier. Quinn Sullivan, the CEO of Empower Texans, expressed why he recorded his conversation with Bonnen and Burrows:
This was a private recording for my own protection. I never intended to release the recording to the public because I believe it may damage innocent bystanders—most notably the Republican Party of Texas and Republican politicians (including those with whom I disagree on matters of policy or philosophy). Many do not deserve to be associated with Dennis Bonnen’s approach to politics. Bonnen said things in the meeting I expect the Democrats will use against Republicans generally. And if the Democrats use the recording effectively, that could ultimately be harmful to Texas taxpayers.
Quinn Sullivan has threatened to release the recording if Bonnen and Burrows continue to spread misinformation about their encounter with Quinn Sullivan.
Fleming declared that the ball is in the GOP leaders’ court.
Whether or not you like MQS or agree with him, Mr. Dunn or Empower Texans is immaterial — so stop acting like you are running in a popularity contest for 5th grade class president. Lead on what is substantive — on what is true and right and good and decent.
She also made it clear that there is no middle road on this issue.
You owe it to the people you represent to hear the evidence and then land on one side or the other of this mess. There is no middle ground. You either agree with the actions of Bonnen and Burrows or you don’t.
Things do not look well for the Texas GOP at the moment.
Since Constitutional Carry was killed and other key conservative issues were not addressed during the 2019 session of the Texas state legislature, grassroots conservatives have begun to lose faith in their political leadership.
Now, many of their fears are being confirmed with the latest case of GOP corruption.
However, the recent performance of Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and the changing demographics of the state show that Texas is transforming politically.
If the Texas GOP doesn’t wake up to this, Texas could become the next California.
For once, GOP leadership will have to actually deliver on their electoral promises, lest they want to become politically irrelevant.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
