Tea Party Calls for Ousting of Texas House Speaker, Joe Straus

The Speaker of the House is Joe Straus, when he ran for speaker he had pledged his vote by a commitment card, but then recanted and ran against Tom Craddick. He won, then went on to appoint many liberal democrats to important committee chair positions.Call your State House Member or Member Elect RIGHT NOW!  If you get a busy signal do not stop trying!  Leave a message if you do not get an answer, include your name and zip code in the message and ask them to reconsider their pledge to the speaker.  Ask them to listen to the people and vote according to their district’s wishes, not the speaker’s!
The written word is powerful, and you taking 5 minutes to send them a message is powerful.  They are listening and need to hear from you today!  Tell them we support them and will continue to support them in a decision to vote with their district rather than a commitment card signed before they knew the landscape of the legislature.  We need a conservative speaker, and there is no gauruntee Joe Straus will appoint conservative Committee Chairs, he can’t even do it prior to the Speaker Vote in January.  So, please ask your House Member to listen to the voice of the people and vote for the most conservative Speaker.
Empower Texans has an excellent article about the Speaker race, see article here;
