Now for all the traitors in the House (especially Leach, Holland & the dirty Iraqi) to pay the piper! They screwed over their guy in their own back yard that helped them for years. Next up, the RINOs in Denton County like Mrs. Doubtfire Kronda and the drunk 4 footer Richard Hayes. Then onto Tarrant. The Democrat wanna be Klickety-Klick. Many more!
Hope there is one helluva celebration tonight for Paxton and his team! They fought hard and they deserve to. Way to go CR for calling it!
Kelley Hancock in SD( needs a challenger today!!! He voted to impeach and he has done pretty much NOTHING of any substance since his initial election very much like my lying Rep Capriglione of District 98.
Will the Texas Republican House Reps who impeached AG Paxton go after Dade To help save their re-election attempts ?
For all you TRANS REPUBLICANS: Did Dade pay you enough to go along with this nonsense that cost taxpayers plenty?? Or maybe you had a nice cocktail with Carl Rove or a member of the Bush family? Who was it that made you feel so 'special' that you thought it a good idea to drag Paxton through the mud personally only to slow down his work at the border and beyond?
Which Republican Senators voted Yea?
