It’s been a longtime coming. Perhaps, finally, State Rep. Sarah Davis (R-Houston RER42) will reap the fruits of her anti-GOP work from her first-day entrance into the Texas House of Representatives in 2010.
The Harris County GOP Executive Committee (CEC) is meeting Monday, November 13, and a #RULE44 resolution naming Davis is on the agenda. Sources tell RagingElephantsRadio.com that the resolutions campaign was spearheaded by four Senatorial District Chairs within the Harris County GOP. Those same sources are not able to give odds on the resolution meeting the 2/3-vote threshold needed for passage.
A source within the CEC told RER, “I just don’t know if it’s going to make it, or not. It’s just hard to measure with so many votes involved.” The Harris GOP CEC is larger than the United States Congress.
A second member of the CEC stated, “I just don’t know what to expect. Maybe more of the precinct chairs are getting braver from seeing what’s happening in other counties. But, I can’t call it. All I know is that it should be hot in there, from the start. I’ve got to believe she’ll have supporters in the joint.”
#RULE44 of the Republican Party of Texas was adopted during the 2016 state convention in Dallas. It provides a process for Republican elected officials to be officially censured by first their county parties, and then by the state party. It can also carry severe sanctions against an officeholder running a campaign for reelection. For instance, being sanctioned by the state party permits the party to take sides in a primary.
State Rep. “Lord Byron” Cook (R-Corsicana RER56) became the first officeholder to be #RULE44’d when on Septermber 23, Anderson County within House District passed censure. Just last week, State Rep. Travis Clardy (R-Nacogdoches RER56) escaped censure when Cherokee County GOP voted to a tie in their emergency meeting.
Davis is a notorious villain amongst the Texas liberty-driven base – and, for numerous reasons.
Not only was Davis the only Republican that voted against the HB2 2013 bill of the special session – the bill that placed a 20-week ban on abortions in Texas – she wrote a scathing article in the Houston Chronicle that was a personal indictment against the GOP for its pro-life stance. Within the article, she compared HB2 to Obamacare and used the argument of “government intrusion” as a basis for her objection to the bill.
On March 3, 2015 during the battle to stop the funding of Planned Parenthood with the funds of the Texas Capitol, Davis appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show on “MSDNC”. She appeared to defend the continued funding of Planned Parenthood and verbally oppose the legislative agenda of the GOP-controlled legislature.
The only Republican that has the “guts” to openly accept an endorsement from Planned Parenthood is Sarah Davis. The latest endorsement came in 2016, of course. Don’t be surprised for a repeat in the 2018 cycle.
Davis may also boast of being the first Republican to ever be endorsed by the pro-homosexual movement Equality Texas PAC.
In their 2014 voter guide, Progress Texas had this to say about Davis:
“In the 2013 legislative session, Sarah Davis demonstrated independence as the lone Republican to vote against the house bill seeking to restrict abortion access in Texas. In standing up against the bill, she also stood up to her own Party. She supported the bipartisan Equal Pay law before it was vetoed by Rick Perry. And she has been endorsed by our allies at Planned Parenthood and Equality Texas. We don’t agree with Sarah Davis on all of the issues – she is still a conservative – but on two of our biggest issues she demonstrated an ability to transcend partisanship and exude leadership.”
It’s not just a matter that Davis is loved by the pro-genocide forces and she fights for them, she is funded by them, as well.
SARAH DAVIS CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD
Davis is a darling of disgraced Texas Speaker of the House Joe Straus. Announcing he’s totally leaving the Texas House in 2019, she should still be able to count on he’s deep pockets and generous hand to continue financially fueling her campaigns.
STRAUS CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS TO DAVIS — CAREER
During his tenure as Speaker, Straus has rarely made public appearances in Houston. But, attending fundraisers for Davis became an annual event he couldn’t miss.
Here’s the email announcing the swanky event from the last election cycle. RER took the liberty to highlight a few of the donors that should raise eyebrows because of their high profiles within the GOP.
Strategically, Straus identified the beliefs of Davis and placed her on the Calendars Committee – the personal legislative assassination squad for Straus. Pro-life after pro-life bill found their deaths in a Davis-occupied Calendars Committee. Straus stacked nearly half of the committee with pro-genocide members.
The violations of the Texas GOP Core Principles and its Platforms are too numerous to catalog.
This is the #RULE44 resolution that has been officially submitted to Harris GOP and should be debated on November 13.
