#TXLEGE: Patrick first statewide offical to acknowlege the completely obvious re: Bonnen

"Make no friendship with an angry man,
And with a furious man do not go,"
Proverbs 22:24

AUSTIN — Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, weighing in on the scandal that's roiled the Texas House in recent weeks, warned Republicans must resolve the issue or risk losing control of that chamber in 2020.

"We don't have many seats to lose in the House to the Democrats, and this could play a part of that," Patrick told radio show host Mark Davis on Monday morning, according to tweets from the Texas Tribune. Patrick called for "transparency" from everyone involved, adding, "The sooner it's behind us, however it turns out, is the better."
Patrick is completely correct.

As we've previously discussed, this scandal will unfold one of two ways: Either Bonnen goes away, or it becomes a slow-drip story for the next year and a half.  With his comments this morning, Patrick has shown he understands the second possibility.  He still needs to figure out the first, but at least it's a start.

It's certainly better than what others are saying (and doing).

Bottom Line: This really shouldn't be difficult....
