He once sat on the Board of Directors for Planned Parenthood. He ran in the 2016 Democratic Primary against State Rep. Sergio Munoz (D-Mission RER18). His name is Abraham Padron.
Abraham Padron was the single biggest TLR stakes winner for the 2016 primary – in either party. The “conservative” graciousness of real estate mogul Dick Weekley and Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC (TLR) endowed the Padron campaign with a cool $173,500 according the Texas Ethics Commission filings – about the equivalent of the yearly salary of a United States member of the Senate or House of Representatives. Weekley flipped over an easy $10,000 under his own name from his pocket change.
Of course, it’s disturbing to discover more evidence of a perceived good guy that is really a really bad deceiver in these new days of liberty media. In the steadily-shrinking echo chamber of the Texas political ecosystem, the talking points, buzzwords, and dog whistles, are being gobbled by Texans less frequently. Therefore, when any organization trumpets its conservative bona fides, and evidence shows that their work has been double-minded, a smacking is in order.
And, so it is with Dick Weekley, and Texans for Lawsuit Reform.

Weekley and TLR have a history of getting involved in Dem-on-Dem contests. They routinely choose the most-left of the candidates, and you can be sure that they are staunchly pro-genocide. In the case of Munoz v. Padron, they went with the one that was certainly more pro-genocide.
In 2014, VoteSmart.org recorded that Munoz, the incumbent, received a 60% rating from the pro-genocide group NARAL. That’s actually better that the current sitting Speaker of the Texas House, Joe Straus (R-Alamo Heights RER0), whose last NARAL score was a 100%.
In essence, Munoz, could be counted on, from time-to-time, to vote pro-life. He basically earned a “D” from NARAL. TLR and Dick Weekley threw their money at Padron.
Now, Dick Weekley and TLR have endorsed the current Interim-Chair of the RPT, Tom Mechler for re-election.
Birds of the feather…
