Conservatives are the bull’s-eye of weaponized government. Nowhere was this more apparent than Lois Lerner’s deliberate attacks on Tea Party groups. Until now, the full force of the so-called Texas Ethics Commission was a well-used weapon in that governmental arsenal. Their latest misfire against Empower Texans will change that fact. The commissioners themselves are now targets of some serious scrutiny and legal action from the very group they tried to attack.
Michael Quinn Sullivan, founder of Empower Texans puts it this way, “Our lawsuit will hold these commissioners personally liable for their unconstitutional actions. They tried to use us as an excuse to silence all Texans, and instead we will use them as a warning to anyone in power who tries to abuse the public trust. Don’t mess with Texans’ constitutional rights.”
