#TXLEGE: One inference from Abbott's Burrows Endorsement

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

We said our piece yesterday about the morality of Governor Abbott's endorsement of Dustin Burrows.  Obviously, it's sleazy.  Obviously, it's sordid.

Nevertheless, one can probably make an inference.

Burrows' role in the scandal must not poll badly, because if it did, there's no way Abbott would stick his neck out for him.

Because you know Abbott polled this first.

That being said, even if the above is likely true, Abbott's move remains shortsighted.  It's one thing to say that, in mid-August a year before the election, Dustin Burrows isn't a political liability.  It's something else entirely to say Burrows won't become one if this story is allowed to slow drip over the next year and a half.

Still, however, Abbott's action likely reveals that this scandal has yet to penetrate the general public's consciousness.

Bottom Line: It's not something upon which one should base one's moral compass, but Abbott's habit of polling everything probably allows you to draw some conclusions.
