#TXLEGE: Geren suddenly starting to feel heat?!?

"While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage."
2 Peter 2:19

[UPDATE: We learned after publication that Geren actually released the statement before Christmas.  That still makes the timing of his re-releasing it strange.  That being said, our points still stand and we will simply note that this is a good reason why elected officials shouldn't block political opponents from viewing social media posts.]

Charlie Geren blocked us on Twitter awhile back, so thanks to Lawerence Person's Battleswarm Blog for catching this tweet in a format we were able to screenshot:

First things first:  Why now?!?  The French lawsuit has been out for a month and this is Geren's first comment.  We've heard more shoes are going to drop, but nothing tangible; Geren's statement has a bit of a "doth protest too much" feel.

As to Geren's assertion that "I can shed no light on the disputed facts," that claim would have more credibility if Geren hadn't just last month been caught lying about his knowledge related to sexual abuse in the Texas House.

At best, it would appear that Geren is incompetently oblivious to multiple recent examples reprehensible behavior in areas where he has jurisdiction.

The whole thing is just strange.

Bottom Line: We'll see what happens, but history suggest that when extended silence shifts to vigorous denial, it often seems to work out poorly for the denier.
