Here is Texas State Rep. Warren Chisum’s letter to his collegues circulating Rep. Ben Bridges (R-Cleveland) memo. Chisum says he knows Bridges through the National Council of State Legislators.
Rep. Bridges now denies he had anything to do with the memo. Not true says Bridges friend, Marshall Hall, whose wife was Bridges campaign manager and who distributed the memo in Bridges name.
“I gave him a copy of it months ago,” said Hall, a retired high school teacher. “I had already written this up as an idea to present to him so he could see what it was and what we were thinking.”
While Bridges is denying responsibility for the memo he says he doesn’t necessarily disagree with it.
“I agree with it more than I would the Big Bang Theory or the Darwin Theory,” Bridges said. “I am convinced that rather than risk teaching a lie why teach anything?”
Bridges has so far resisted apologizing for the memo sent in his name.
“I regret that these people have been offended, but I didn’t offend them because I didn’t put the memo out.”
Where are the Georgia Republican leaders demanding that Bridges apologize? And where are the lazy Democrats on this?
Thank you Steve for pointing me to this source information.
