Funny Side Story On The Race For Speaker

Posted in Corruption, 80th Legislature at 10:27 pm by wcnews

Remember all that money corporations and lobbyists gave Speaker Craddick to remodel the apartment in the Capitol? Wouldn’t it be funny if all that money was spent for Tom Craddick and then someone else wound up living there? KVUE has the story, Craddick could lose more than just his speakership:

The legislature did not get to decide on renovations, but it does decide on its speaker. And if a new speaker is elected, that person will inherit a place custom renovated for the Craddick’s.

Here’s an old EOW link with the backtory. All that private money to curry favor with the Speaker Craddick and then someone else winds up living there. Ironic.
