#TXLEGE: Lying drunk files for re-election....

"Woe to those who rise early in the morning,
That they may follow intoxicating drink;
Who continue until night, till wine inflames them!"
Isaiah 5:11

Well, that answers that question:
Perhaps the biggest news of the day was that state Rep. Dan Huberty, the Houston Republican who chairs the House Public Education Committee, filed for re-election after months of uncertainty over whether he would run for another term. He faces a primary challenge from Kyle Stephenson.
As to the claims in the headline.

Dan Huberty is a liar because during this past legislative session he pushed a "school finance" bill that he claimed was about property tax relief.  But Huberty's bill wouldn't have provided a dime of property tax relief, it simply poured a couple Billion more dollars from the state into the socialized education status quo without any offsetting restraints at the local level.  While it's possible to write a school fiance bill that provides tax relief at the local level, Huberty's bill did not do that.

As to Dan Huberty being a drunk:

Bottom Line: Between the terrible bills he promotes and his wretched personal conduct, Dan Huberty is awful on many levels.
