State Rep. Scott Turner

David reports that State Rep. Jeff Leach has nominated  Rep. Scott Turner — both Republicans from the Collin County area — for Speaker of the House. As David says, “Both are viscious anti-gay pricks who are co-sponsoring a bill to make nondiscrimination ordinances [like the one recently passed in Plano protecting LGBT people] illegal.”

Rep. Four Price, a Republican from Potter County, nominated Rep. Joe Straus, the Bexar County Republican who has been speaker for the last three sessions, to a fourth term.

We will update you when the vote is done.
