A reader posted a comment about this last night, and I made it into a brief post. However, my attempts to confirm it were unsuccessful, so I removed it from the Web site, rather than keep an unconfirmed report on display.
A few minutes ago I received a call from Representative Pena. He wasn't concerned that I has posted the reader's comments. "It got the ball rolling," he said.
"I am taking it under consideration," he told me from Phoenix. "When I get home to Texas on Tuesday, I'll talk to people. What concerns me is, How do you function as a super minority? I'm concerned the Democrats will be irrelevant. I'm considering every option. What is the best way to help my constituents?"
Pena said that he would make a formal statement next week.
