Comments by Lone Star Project Director Matt Angle on Lawsuit Detailing Illegal Negotiations Between Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen and Michael Quinn Sullivan

“If the secret recording exonerated Dennis Bonnen or Michael Quinn Sullivan, it would already be public. They are both hiding it, because it likely implicates them in a crime. The lawsuit is essential to protect crucial evidence that could be destroyed without legal action. 

“The Bonnen/Sullivan scandal is more than a spat between scoundrels. Bonnen and Sullivan appear to have illegally negotiated targeting and defeating members of the Texas House of Representatives. Dennis Bonnen violated his colleagues’ trust and very likely broke the law.  Michael Quinn Sullivan has made a career out of low blows, cheap shots, political betrayal and disrespect for the law.

“The Bonnen secret tape scandal shows how Texans are being failed by their leadership at every level.  Donald Trump launches racial attacks while John Cornyn, Greg Abbott and other State-wide GOP leaders cheer from the sidelines.  Meanwhile, Dennis Bonnen betrays the trust of House members from both parties by holding backroom meetings with unethical, off-the-edge operatives to plot against his colleagues.”
