You can say what you want, but what’s undebatable is that the new Texas GOP #RULE44 is creating some of the greatest political theatre this state has seen in a long time. And, it’s happening at the grassroots level, in the backyards of liberty-driven Texans, and not under the Big Corporate Media blackout of the Pink Dome in Austin.
Cherokee County GOP has decided that it’s about had it with State Rep. Travis Clardy (R-Nacogdoches RER56). Not unlike most ATX, plutocratic, Texas RINOs, Clardy promotes himself as a “Christian Conservative”. However, grassroots Texans are becoming fast learners and discovering that those that claim to be conservative are mostly not. That would be the case with Clardy.
In this RERvideo, Clardy puts on a theatrical performance that’s rarely scene in Texas politics outside of the Pink Dome and the glaring cameras. This is reality TV at its best!
So, the Cherokee County GOP Executive Committee (CEC) is deliberating whether Clardy should be the second Texas GOP elected officeholder to be officially censured and sanctioned by the state party as provided through #RULE44.
Clardy, who inexplicably recently expressed his desire to become the next Texas Speaker of the House, now is fighting for his political life. On October 31, Clardy did what #RULE44 was created to do – force GOP legislators to come before their constituents and the ruling body of the party and defend their actions that are counter to the core principles of the Texas GOP Platform.
Clardy is the first officeholder to come before one of his CECs and put forth a #RULE44 defense. The first officeholder to be #RULE44’d, State Rep. “Lord Byron” Cook (R-Corsicana RER56) announced his retirement from the Pink Dome on October 25. Texas Speaker of the House found his home county, Bexar, close to fisticuffs over a #RULE44 resolution naming him, and he quit four minutes before Cook on October 25.
The Cherokee County GOP voted to table the #RULE44 resolution naming Clardy until their next meeting scheduled for November 16.
