Republicans prove they have no problem continuing to fight when they lose
Advertisements [?]
Democrats on the other hand act like there is something so unseemly about fighting, scrapping, pulling hair and kicking in the balls if we have to win. The Repubs all ganged up on a story this last Friday that a teacher was suspended for teaching the Constitution. A story they know full well is false. Yet we have a legit complaint and I don't see anybody going on any where to fight for this guy.


State Rep. Talmadge Heflin asked the state House of Representatives today to overturn the results of his failed re-election bid and either order him returned to the Legislature or call for a new election.

Heflin's attorney, Andy Taylor, said the election results in state House District 149 in southwest Harris County were fraught with voting irregularities and potential fraud, most of which occurred in predominantly Democratic precincts.

"The true outcome of this election was stolen from the voters in House District 149," Taylor said Tuesday. "We will prove that Representative Talmadge Heflin was re-elected."

Heflin, a Republican member of the House since 1983 and chairman of its Appropriations Committee, lost to Democratic businessman Hubert Vo by 32 votes earlier this month. But Heflin's campaign alleges that those election results include at least 248 irregularities that could have altered the outcome.
