Update: According to this story on Dkos the threat of arrest was actually speculation by some state legislator rather than a statement from law enforcement. Doesn't change much in my book as it was clearly an attempt by an official to intimidate citizens exercising their First Amendment rights.
I will speculate my own self that said legislator is probably feeling very foolish right now, and if I find out which numskull made that threat (we're talking about the Texas Lege, so there's an embarrassing wealth of candidates) he'll be in for a Lone Star smackdown that's gonna leave him dizzy for several days.
A site for cross-posting and posting original stories from around Texas that reveal the character of the Texas right wing. So much dirt. Such a big state.
This site brings Texas bloggers together to keep an eye on the actions of Texas right-wingers. Yes, friends. The radical conservative Republican politicians and activists who rule this state assume that nobody is watching.
They are hoping that nobody remembers Sen. John Cornyn's statements justifying violence against judges or Majority Leader Tom DeLay's zealous intervention into a private family dispute that spawned a media circus. Or Congressman Sam Johnson's intimation that he could personally nuke Syria. Or that Kay Bailey Hutchison has hired one of the "swift boat" smear architects for her gubernatorial campaign. Or that Republican corruption in the Dallas County Police Department has contributed to outrageous crime rates. Or the actions and stunts of the Young Conservatives of Texas on college campuses all across the state.
Well, they have had over ten years to lead. They haven't led. We will.
