I warned Stacey Campfield that Boss Hogg wasn’t going quietly and that Mumpower needed to get some Democrats to ensure a cushion (even if it meant doling out Chairmanships to them) to guard against this chicanery. You couldn’t afford to take any chances with a 1-seat majority. All Naifeh had to do was find a very weak link, and he found his nice little RINO meatpuppet for the next 2 years. Kent Williams is a brainless weasel. He doesn’t know how the House operates and has to ask everyone (read: Naifeh) how to even run a session. He was barking like a rabid dog at his now FORMER GOP colleagues, “You got a PROBLEM with me as Speaker ?”, etc.
I did feel sorry when the tv cameras cut to Mumpower’s reaction, he did not know what to do. I wish they had taken my advice. If I was on his staff, I’d have played hardball and gotten as many Democrats to come over as possible, especially focusing on the ones Naifeh has screwed over the years. You can’t play honorably with criminals and thugs. They change the rules to suit their agenda.
Do you think anything can be done to fix this?
