Giovanni Capriglione...and Steve Bresnen?!?
"Do not be deceived: Evil company corrupts good habits.”
1 Corinthians 15:33
Steve Bresnen is a prominent Austin lobbyist. He has longstanding ties to BINGO interests and Trial Lawyers. As a lobbyist for the Texas Family Law Foundation, he was instrumental in killing American Laws for American Courts legislation last session.
Bresnen is also the driving force behind the Texas "Ethics" Commission's jihad against Empower Texans.
Which make this item from page 8 of Giovanni Capriglione's January 2015 campaign finance report very interesting:
Capriglione endorsed Straus's re-election as speaker on Monday, November 10th; Bresnen's donation came the following Friday.
Bottom Line: Cahnman's Musings has no beef with Steve making the donation. On a certain level, we actually respect the chutzpah. That being said, for Steve Bresnen to see Giovanni Capriglione as a worthwhile investment tells you everything you need to know about where the latter's bread is buttered these days.
