RPT Chairman Dickey insists speaker commitment form is not legislative bribery

“While the Party is confident that the Texas Ethics Commission will use common sense to reaffirm our right to distribute the Form, we also stand ready to challenge any unconstitutional power grab that deprives voters of important information about candidates’ positions”

Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey on Tuesday pushed back against the assertion that the speaker commitment forms the party has been distributing may be illegal legislative bribery.

"The idea that it is somehow bribery to ask Republican legislators to commit to do what Republican voters want them to do is laughable,” Dickey said in a written statement.
