"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan."
Louie Gohmert's last minute challenge to will end in one of three ways, which have have the following impact in Scott Turner's race:
- Gohmert wins, thus proving it's possible (and making any Republicans who vote for Straus look really, REALLY bad).
- Gohmert extracts meaningful concessions, thus proving it's possible to extract concessions.
- Republicans stiff-arm their own voters, yet again, thus pissing off voters all over again less than one week before the Texas House speaker vote.
Any of these scenarios is a win.
