Why did Texas Republican and Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan “bloglunch” with Death Threat Democrat John Cobarruvias?
In the aftermath of the December 2012 shootings in Newtown, CT, Big Jolly Politics introduced you to Texas State Democratic Executive Committee member John Cobarruvias who advocated the murder of NRA President David Keene. John’s death threats were reported on conservative blog sites such as Rhymes With Right, Michelle Malkin, PJ Media, and Breitbart, in addition to the Michael Berry and Sean Hannity radio shows.
John’s history includes disrespecting Texas Attorney General Abbott back in March 2010 when he called for the AG to “get off his ass and take a stand” and issuing a 2011 threat to “billy club” Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle for her stance on requiring photo ID at the polls.
So I was quite surprised to learn Texas Republican and Harris County Tax Assessor- Collector Mike Sullivan “bloglunched” with John Cobarruvias and Scrambled Brains & Lobotomized Eggs.
Coby wrote he “walked away with a very positive feeling about Sullivan’s office“:
“I have to admit, I walked away with a very positive feeling about Sullivan’s office especially the attitude towards registering voters. The days of lawsuits and controversy concerning the voting rolls, voter intimidation, and other voter issues seems to have ended. His attitude is more of “how can my office help to register voters” instead of working to suppress the vote. Sullivan mentioned that 3 inherited lawsuits due to the policies of his predecessors, Leo Vasquez, and Don Sumners, have been resolved.”
Why did Sullivan meet with this guy considering Coby’s previous threats of violence against other Texas Republicans?
