#TXLEGE: Activists apologize for previous support of Capriglione

"He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy."
Proverbs 28:13

These are great!!!

Julie McCarty:

  • "I'm sorry that I ever helped lead the way for Giovanni Capriglione to ever become a state representative."
  • "Gio campaigned as a conservative; we all believed his promises, myself included."
  • Had a decent record his first session, and it's been steadily downhill ever since.
  • It's not just about the speaker vote two sessions ago; Giovanni's turned his back on a lot of other things as well.
  • "We have learned a lot over the past 6 to 8 years about vetting candidates.
  • Vote Armin Mizani.

  • In his first campaign, Capriglione explained the psychological games the lobby plays with new conservative members. 
  • "He did exactly what he described, what he was warning about."
  • "That's why I'm out working for Armin today."

  • "I'm sorry that our state representative, Giovanni Capriglione, has been less than truthful to the people who put him into office six years ago."
  • Voted for granny tax.
  • Voted to preserve corporate welfare for Hollywood.

[Note: We're not going to post a "highlight" list for this final video because the visuals only work if you watch the whole thing from start to finish.  It's only four minutes.  Well worth it.]

Bottom Line: Giovanni Capriglione's political trajectory reminds us of Arnold Schwarzenegger's as Governor of California.  Lots of big talk on the campaign trail, followed by a little action in the first year, followed by falling off a cliff.  Ultimately, Schwarzenegger made the problems he originally campaigned on fixing much, much, worse.  It's not a good comparison.
