Nearly one month after the initial statement, Farenthold's communications director, Stacey Daniels, tells CNN that he has not yet written a check, and on the advice of counsel is waiting to see what changes the House will make to the Congressional Accountability Act before repaying those funds.

On December 4, Farenthold told a local TV station, KRIS in Corpus Christi, Texas, "I'm ... going to hand a check over this week to probably Speaker Ryan or somebody and say, 'Look, here's the amount of my settlement. Give it back to the taxpayers. I want to be clear that I didn't do anything wrong, but I also don't want the taxpayers to be on the hook for this.'"

4. Always, ALWAYS....

watch what a Republican does, NOT what that Republican says they're going to do. They always seem to be two completely different things for some reason. I wonder why that is? I guess it's plain old hypocrisy, or their inherent insistence on lying about everything. Either way, a Republican is never to be taken at his/her word.

9. South Texas oil, cattle, land.

Goes back for generations. Unless the family has cut him off---and such families never seem to deal with their embarrassments properly---$85,000 would be chicken feed to Pajama Boy.
