Texas GOP Regrets A Fringe Teabagger They Inevitably Created

Twitter is a very useful place for making connections to people who would normally have nothing to do with you. A self-professed Republican implored my assistance on the social media site to anonymously expose a certain Texas Republican that is too crazy for the party of voter
suppression, unlimited NRA power, pro-death penalty, anti-woman, anti-science and anti-education. Morgan McComb has had close ties to representatives with ethics violations galore and some Dallas area Republicans want her to disappear. I hesitated to help this person, as I thought I might inadvertently help the GOP in Texas to rid them of those who make the party appear crazier. However, in this case, I figured it was an opportunity to expose Texas Republicans as the nutty, corrupt bunch they really are.

I decided to check this woman out and see why they want to expel her from the political scene in Rick Perry and Ted Cruz’s GOP Paradise. They don’t want such an obvious racist as McComb in their conservative circles. Her Twitter profile reads:

A TRUE Conservative TX Mom & Patriot Activist LUVS Jesus, Family, Guns, Military, Boots & Jeans, My horses, Politics & my friends! FREEDOM! DON’T TREAD ON ME!!

I guess I’m a sucker for Republican infighting.

McComb has worked with Tea Party Senate Candidate for Texas’s District 10, Konni Burton. Burton’s ethics come into play with her support for Tea Party AG candidate Ken Paxton who admitted to securities violations.

She lists on her Facebook history that she worked with Jonathan Stickland For House Representative District 92. Here’s an interesting tidbit unearthed by a simple search. (from) the latest ethics reports that were published by the Texas Ethics Commission July 15th. Lot’s of numbers to say the least. One report jumped out at me though. It looks like Jonathan Stickland loaned himself $125,000.00 on June 25, 2013. Something does not smell right. Who are his clients and what exactly is Mr. Stickland doing to make all this money? What services does he offer? Stickland, who did not graduate high school, has netted far too much from the oil and gas industry as a ‘consultant’ yet doesn’t have any experience. McComb is very dedicated to Stickland and the Dallas GOP isn’t happy about her being a player in Texas politics. Stickland represents Texans currently in Austin.

Libertarians believe McComb is too racist and too extreme for the Dallas area GOP. Bottom line, they don’t want anyone out there that is quite THAT obvious. Because the GOP has been shaped by the John Birch Society and the Koch Brothers, these people are going to surface en masse. A few conservatives are realizing this can’t be good for the party. Is it too late for the GOP to recover from the inmates taking over the asylum? I sure hope so.

  1. Saw your story from someone I follow on Twitter that I knew from back in Texas.

    I went to high school with Stickland. He wasn’t the sharpest spoon of the drawer then and he still ain’t now.

    Here is some more information about him.

  2. Follow the money. Empower Texans have donated over $80,000 to Stickland. Yet they only donate a few thousand to other reps. Has a special interest bought a seat in the Texas house?
