#TXLEGE: OTOH, the Brazenness is Kinda Funny

"He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy."
Proverbs 28:13

Via. Texas Scorecard:
Since March, the Texas Capitol has been closed to the public, as part of the state’s response to the Chinese coronavirus. As the upcoming legislative session draws closer on the calendar, questions have arisen over whether the Capitol will remain closed once session begins.

An anonymous survey of Texas House members reveals most lawmakers favor restricting access to the Texas Capitol building.


Though many House members are in favor of restrictions on citizens, the tables begin to turn when talking about themselves. Eighty-six percent favor designating certain entrances of the Texas Capitol building for members and staff only. And 76 percent favor keeping the members’ lounge open for business, serving food and drinks, with one anonymous respondent calling it “absolutely necessary.”

“The members’ lounge is a critical component to member relationships. Often, it is the only time for members to get to know each other and have good discussions,” said one respondent. “Members who are really concerned do not have to go in there, but it should be open.”
To fully understand the context, consider that:
  • The members lounge is where they keep the booze.
  • Charlie Geren is the chair of the house admin. committee.
Does this one really need further explanation?!?

Bottom Line:  Apparently, lobbyists funded alcohol kills COVID
