#TXLEGE: No, really, who hired the right lobbyists re: "reopening?!?"

"Dishonest scales are an abomination to the Lord,
But a just weight is His delight."
Proverbs 11:1

PushJunction yesterday:

Obviously, PushJunction is tracking reopening in the macro sense. Equally obvious, in that macro sense, is that Texas' alleged "reopening" falls far short of claims made by politicians. We noticed something else.

That chart is a guide for how Mike Toomey, using the authority Greg Abbott delegated to him, is picking winners and losers.

It's tough to know exactly what  to make of this.  It's a snapshot in time.  Except that this is what happens when you put lobbyists in charge of the 11th largest economy in the world.

Equally obvious, the path of least resistance for Abbott is to fire Mike Toomey and lift the remaining restrictions.

Bottom Line:  Next round of campaign finance and lobby reports gonna be fascinating....
