State Rep. Drew Springer was just re-elected to Texas House District 68, and as is tradition in a banana republic state with a legislature that meets just every other year like here in Tex-ass, Drew, along with other Legiscritters, filed a bunch of bills on the first day of filing, a week after the election.
One paper in his district apparently was so impoverished to run this as its lead story. Not even bylined.
There's one additional problem.
This isn't a normal mid-November for Uncle Drew.
Springer is in a runoff special election for a state senate seat. And, just about every one of the bills he filed was a pander against claims by his opponent, Shelley Luther, that he's not a "real conservative."In short, he just got himself a shitload of free advertising.
