you can't just ignore the rules
So, while we were all out having a life tonight, apparently all hell broke loose at the Texas House. You know it's bad when the parliamentarian resigns three days before the end of the session. The assistant parliamentarian resigned as well. And the Statesman article says that she was "nearly in tears" as she left.
Terry Keel is apparently filling in as parliamentarian, according to Quorum Report. If Tom Craddick is vying to go down as the worst Speaker in Texas history, I'd say he's well on the way.
It's on channel 17, but I'm seriously tempted to go down and watch.
