CLARIFICATION: Wiley, Workman, and Houston


"Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,"
Acts 3:19

We need to offer a partial correction to something we reported Saturday.  Paul Workman endorsed repealing the Houston Bathroom ordinance in the middle of the day on Tuesday, NOT Wednesday morning as we originally reported.  Cahnman's Musings apologizes for the sloppy reporting.

Around 9AM, the Campaign for Houston posted a list (subsequently deleted) of elected officials and candidates who supported repeal of the bathroom ordinance.  Paul Workman's name wasn't there.  This is the list Jay Wiley posted to his Facebook page at 9:14AM:

Proud to be listed as one of the candidates opposing Houston's Prop 1, the Bathroom Ordinance that would allow men into women's restrooms.

Likewise, HD-128 candidate Briscoe Cain posted the same list to his Facebook page:

Proud to be listed on this statewide slate of Republicans supporting Texas Values.

At 12:12 PM, Campaign for Houston posted an updated list to their Facebook page that included Paul Workman (this was the list that Workman eventually published to his FB page):

Meet the local elected officials who are taking a stand against Proposition 1, The Bathroom Ordinance!Make sure you...
Posted by Campaign For Houston on Tuesday, November 3, 2015


Most likely, this means Workman had his name added to the list between 9AM and Noon on election day; the irony of the move occurring at literally the eleventh hour does not escape us.

Bottom Line: On Saturday, we incorrectly reported the timing of Paul Workman's actions regarding the Houston bathroom ordinance.  For that, we apologize.  Nonetheless, jumping on a bandwagon at the last minute isn't impressive....
