#atxcouncil: Kelly scares somebody

"For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful Have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

This reality recently emerged in Austin, TX, when Media Matters, along with Texas Democrats, attempted to smear a leader in the Travis County Republican Party (TCRP) and a conservative candidate running for city council.

It didn’t take long for Media Matters to step in and do what they do best: Lie about Republicans. The supposed media watchdog outlet used Shroyer’s appearance to falsely smear the TCRP, along with Travis County GOP Chair Matt Mackowiak and Mackenzie Kelly, who is currently running for city council.
The linked piece what happened and why MediaMatters' accusations are nonsense.  We recommend reading it.  For our purposes, however, it matters less what was the said and more that that particular organization said something in the first place.

Because it begs a follow up question: Why does MediaMatters care about Mackenzie Kelly?!?

We don't know.

We could sketch out any number of potentially plausible hypotheses. But they're just that: hypotheses. Any answer we could give is speculative.

But we know one thing: Somebody doesn't want even a hint of intellectual diversity on the Austin city council.

Probably a good reason to donate to Mackenzie Kelly's campaign.

Bottom Line: Sometimes the reaction of your opponents tells you things you wouldn't have otherwise known....
