Did Greg Abbott just take a shot at Joe Straus?!?
"So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward."
Very, very interesting ad from Greg Abbott:
Which begs the real question: When Greg Abbott talks about "no more taking highway funds by the Legislature to pay for their pet projects" who is he talking about?!?
To be fair, Straus isn't the only member of the legislature who's played games with transportation funding, but he is the most powerful.
Even if the line wasn't aimed specifically at Straus, it's clearly at attack on business as usual in the Legislature; also, Abbott didn't need to include the line for the ad to be effective, so the fact that it's in there in the first place is revealing.
Either way: Great job by Abbott on a subject he didn't have to address!!!
