#TXLEGE: Abbott being Abbott (Burrows Endorsement Edition)

Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”
1 Corinthians 15:33

Of course he did:
Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday endorsed state Rep. Dustin Burrows for reelection, giving the Lubbock lawmaker a vote of confidence as he deals with accusations that he and House Speaker Dennis Bonnen schemed to target fellow Republicans in the 2020 primaries.

"I am proud to endorse Representative Dustin Burrows for re-election, and I am grateful for his strong leadership in the Texas House," Abbott said in a statement. "Representative Burrows is a servant leader who puts the needs of his constituents first, and I look forward to continuing our important work together as we create an even brighter future for the state of Texas."

Abbott's endorsement comes days after Burrows resigned as chairman of the House Republican Caucus amid the ongoing fallout from the scandal with Bonnen, which the Texas Rangers are now investigating.
Yet they wonder why they're in political trouble (send money!!!).

This won't age well.

Bottom Line: Slow drip gonna keep drippin'....
