Galveston County’s state representative wants people punished if they fake their way to the front of the ferry line.

State Rep. Mayes Middleton has filed a bill in the Texas Legislature that would make it a crime to obtain a medical pass for Texas ferries unless you have a legitimate medical need.

How did Randy vote on removing Liz Cheney from her leadership role?

Bailey Jones

Secret vote.

Gary Scoggin

I know, but it would be nice to know. I think we can assume that Randy did whatever Louie Gohmert told him to do.

Bailey Jones

That's a scary thought.

Gary Scoggin

Randy did vote for him for Speaker once. That's an even scarier thought.

I see Bailey was a John Boehner supporter. Nut But either is better than Nancy.

Glad to see Conservative Republican Mayes Middleton concerned about numerous persons skirting the ferry boarding process. Wish Mayes was equally passionate about not encouraging people to skirt Texas law regarding golf carts and Governor Abbott's COVID-19 orders regulating bars. . Need to work towards enforcing current laws before spending time creating new ones which will ignored with impunity.
