And now a word from Rep. Bobby Moak

What really upsets the Republican Party is that a lot of voters like the idea of a balanced state government, a government where Democrats and Republicans have to work together, where compromise is preferable to one-party rule. Because the plan approved by the House preserves that balance, because it did not gerrymander the district lines to ensure the election of a Republican speaker, the GOP is complaining.

Winston Churchill once said, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” This is an effort to get the pants on what really happened in the House last week.
