Local Fox 26 had an hour-long mayoral forum on live TV last night. State Sen. John Whitmire is taking more incoming from his opponents. That is all I have to say.
January 6 Committee star witness Cassidy Hutchinson has a book coming out today titled Enough. She was interviewed by Rachel Maddow last night.
She said her boss, Donald Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows burned a bunch of documents in his office fireplace. She said Trump was a danger to democracy. There was shoddy treatment of classified documents.
She also said knucklehead GOP Cong. Matt Gaetz hit up on her.
Gaetz put out a statement saying he dated Hutchinson. Here is what how Cassidy replied to Gaetz last night:
“I never dated Matt Gaetz. I have much higher standards in men, and Matt, frankly, is a very unserious politician. We see that today with the ruckus that he is causing on Capitol Hill with the spending negotiations. And I don’t really have much else to say to somebody that is more concerned about a sound bite than actually passing legislation.”
Hutchinson has testified under oath.
Cassidy Hutchinson is only 27 years of age. She is courageous for sure. She stepped forward and told the truth about what she witnessed. She is an American hero in my book.
I will buy her book next time I visit Barnes and Noble or Target.
The Chron E-Board came out against state constitutional amendment Prop 1. The E-Board take is not online yet. Here is from the Texas Secretary of State:
Proposition 1 – HJR 126 “The constitutional amendment protecting the right to engage in farming, ranching, timber production, horticulture, and wildlife management.”
Bobby Shantz is 98 today. Who is Bobby Shantz you ask? He was our Opening Day starting pitcher for the Colt 45s against the Cubbies at Colt Stadium back in 1962, the first ever MLB game played in H-Town. He struck out 2 future Hall of Famers in Lou Brock and Billy Williams and also faced another 2 future Hall of Famers, Ernie Banks and Ron Santo. Shantz got the win as the Colt 45s prevailed that day 11-2. He wore the number 42. Happy Birthday, Bobby Shantz!
I stayed up to watch the Astros win last night. Justin Verlander pitched a gem, and we got dingers from Yordan and King Tuck. We are still in the playoff hunt.
