Campaign Donation Disclosure: $25 to Jonathan Stickland
"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan."
Jonathan Stickland is "a pain in the ass to all the right people." Often he's the conscience of the Texas House of Representatives; single-handedly opposing the bullying and lawlessness that defines Joe Straus' speakership. That's why he's been a victim of the sadly popular trend of criminalizing Texas' politics.
He's also hosting a money-bomb today; all donations received before midnight tonight will get a TRIPLE match.
This is one of the highest return on investment donations a grassroots activist can make.
And that's why we just donated $25.
On the presidential trail, Ted Cruz often speaks of a "Washington cartel" comprised of career politicians in both parties, lobbyists, and the media. The exact same phenomenon exists in Austin. Texans need Jonathan Stickland exposing the perfidies.
It's easy for the coalition of D's and legacy R's that controls the Texas House of Representatives (for now) to raise money from lobbyists and insiders; grassroots candidates need grassroots support.
