Hey, More State Officials Supporting Blue Bell: It's The Twittering Supreme Court Judge


Tweet.

I'd love this on a law school test regarding campaign ethics laws: "Assuming the facts depicted in the above tweet are true, what are the potential legal issues?"  I think I could write for a long time.

Hey, the guy is no fool.  He's doing a staged bit. And he's smart enough not to do it during work or use a government phone to do nothing more than promote himself as an elected official.

There will never be an ethics problem...

The Texas Supreme Court consists of 9 people who were given money from special interest groups (insurance, home builders, and oil & gas are the biggest) so that, when elected, those 9 would vote in the financial interests of the donors. All Texas civil claims can be ultimately decided there if they go that far--including ethics issues.

Blue Bell has given money to Republican Supreme Court candidates for years. Chief Justice Nathan Hecht began receiving money from them over 20 years ago--in 1994 per followthemoney.org.

Nothing to see here folks. Move along.

By mentioning stuff like this on your blog, aren't you, in effect, doing the same thing? Why yes, I think you are!

I don't think people are forced to look at his tweets. I think it's completely optional.
