Meckler denegrates Texas state Republicans

By Anastasia

This disrespectful email was forwarded to me. It was signed by “Tamara Colbert, State Director, Convention of States Project”:

CoS email Texas

Notice the language used: A Shiv in the Back. 

Is this how we talk about state legislators, even when they disagree? And then Ms. Colbert, goes on to say the

Texas legislature is being sabotaged by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and members that we have trusted throughout this process.

It doesn’t matter if Mssr. Meckler wrote this email or not. The author is one of his volunteers or employees who is disrespecting elected officials because they aren’t interested in his “project.”

Get a grip, Marky.

It seems they are putporting to know all about ArtibleV. Not why we are here. To bring sunlight to what the leadership may have in mind.

The COS email insinuates that activists will vote out legislators who do not support them.  Why than does COS not think that activists can vote out other bad legislators to correct problems?  It would certainly be easier to win elections then amend the Constitution via an Article V convention.  


This article explains some details about what happened in Texas, information that COS would NEVER report on or allow to remain on their state Facebook pages.  A lot of the pro COS lobbying was not from the state constituents and if it was, 22,000 is not a “majority constituency” as COS claimed.  A legislator who is a national chair of ALEC (a promoter of COS) was hearing his own COS bill in a committee he chairs over other bills.
