It’s going to be tough to top Rep. Linda Harper-Brown, R-Irving, and her YouTube response to a Dallas Morning News/WFAA-TV report about the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 she drives that is owned by a firm that has millions of dollars in state transportation contracts.
Harper-Brown is on the House Transportation Committee. And, FYI, her husband also drives a vehicle owned by the firm that provided her Mercedes. Both vehicles feature State Official license plates.
We’ll get back to the details in a moment, but we can’t wait to tell you about how Harper-Brown defends against the apparent conflicts of interest. Actually, in the video, she doesn’t really offer a defense, other than that all of this is a result of liberals, lawyers and the “mainstream media.”
If you watch one YouTube video in your lifetime, please make it this one. There are no kitties playing the piano, but you’re going to love the Harper-Brown performance at http://tinyurl.com/3y47ch8.
If that’s the response she’s going to get for her efforts, then it’s going to be a long summer for Harper-Brown. The DMN is less snarky but still critical, while Lone Star Project, Harold Cook, and the badly missed Pink Dome have more.
