Debra Medina (Republican Gubernatorial Candidate and founder of We Texans wetexans.com) hosts a potluck dinner and discussion every first Friday of the month that has come to be known as, you guessed it, First Friday. The discussion centers on politics but more specifically on politics dealing with Texas and local Texas Government (county/city). Sometimes guests will be invited.
The September discussion was fortunate enough to have Rep. David Simpson, the author of the TSA Anti-Groping bill. Rep. Simpson discussed with the group about the bill’s inception and path through the legislature.
He also explained that a concerted effort between all three branches of the Texas Government:
• The Executive under Governor Rick Perry
• The Texas Senate under Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and
• The Texas House of Representatives under the House Speaker Joe Strauss
though talking to the media and the constituency in favor of the bill were actually behind the scenes doing everything in their power to kill it.
