I did not respond to comments to the posting on Pitts’ press release blasting Craddick, but, in retrospect, one requires a reply, and not just in the area for comments:

“I always knew the plaintiff’s lawyers were coordinating the anti Craddick campaign. But I respected Pitts. Now, I’m starting to lose all respect for the guy. Quorum Report has a copy of Pitts’ request card. He’s flat out lying about requesting a seat on Appropriations. He’s becoming nothing more than a puppet for his mega-millions ambulance chaser twin brother.”

My response: On the request card, as shown on the Quorum Report, Pitts named three committees and checked “CBO.” This, of course, stands for “Chairman for Budget and Oversight.” CBOs automatically become members of the Appropriations committee. Pitts told the truth.
