The Steady Conservative has a great, must-read post up about who is behind all the money that’s being poured into Texas politics this year. It’s the Houston trial lawyer, Steve Mostyn, that Saddleburr wrote about a week or so ago . It’s truly eye-opening to see how one man is using his money pile to make a serious run at controlling Texas’ state government. Exit question: Why aren’t the mainstream media in Texas lamenting the influence of money on our political system? Exit answer: Because the influence of money is serving Democrats.
