Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is a rightwing zealot. He has two obsessions that keep him awake at night. He wants vouchers. And, he wants to keep transgender people out of the bathroom of their choice. He runs the State Senate. He is an extremist. As one of the regular readers here said, if Patrick has his way with the bathroom bill, the women’s and girls’ bathrooms will suddenly have some hairy, muscled patrons who look very much like men.
Two sisters testified against the voucher bill, which is intended to offer vouchers to students with disabilities.
First was Abby. This is her testimony:
Mr. Chairman and members of the committee:
• My name is Abby Tassin. I am 17-years-old and I have Down syndrome.
• I am testifying against the bill.
• I am going to the 11th grade at Ridge Point High School in Fort Bend ISD.
