Gotta love Jared Woodfill. When it comes to a fight, he simply refuses to back down or be bullied. From the department of “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander” comes this:
Woodfill Texas Public Information request regarding the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO)
Well, maybe in this case, I need to say it differently so that the HERO proponents can grasp it. Let’s try this: “What’s good for the gander that thinks he’s a goose is good for the goose that thinks she’s a gander”. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
In case you’ve forgotten, Houston voters destroyed Mayor Annise Parker’s attempt to redefine gender (among other things) in a 61-39 thrashing. The supporters of the measure filed multiple Public Information Act requests, similar to Parker’s own attempts to subpoena emails and sermon notes from Houston pastors. Yvonne wrote about it here.
It’s about time Republicans fought back against these bullies. I wish the Republican Party of Texas understood how critical it is that we do that, now, while the issue is hot, and every single time these people try to bully us. Being passive doesn’t work with these folks, you have to fight on their turf.
Kudos to Jared for fighting back. Hey Mechler, you watching this?
