Neocon knives out for Senator who led filibuster

Bosque County Chairman Janet Jackson
Bosque County – A top GOP organizer and State Republican Executive Committeewoman is targeting Democratic Senator Wendy Davis of Ft. Worth in retaliation for her epic filibuster that broke the abortion bill Tuesday night.

Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Ft. Worth
Janet Jackson is also Bosque County Republican Chairman, and is known for a militant stance in unseating more traditional Republicans in the ranks of her own party.

A community organizer, she has led efforts to fill Precinct Chairmanships in counties throughout Senate Republican Executive Committee 22.

She teaches neoconservative activists how to register people to vote, conduct poll watching on election days, hold precinct conventions, and become elected Republican Party delegates.

She has also been in open combat with other GOP county chairmen, most notably Joe B. Hinton, a retired Mobil/Exxon Vice President who headed McLennan County's GOP organization.

In an e-mail distributed Wednesday afternoon, she told a select list of addressees, "This is the Senator (Ms. Davis) that we need to unseat in 2014. She represents Senate District10, just to the north of our Senate District 22. Remember this action when we ask you to join us for block walks and phone duty to unseat her in the upcoming election."

The Democratic senator held out in a filibuster for 11 hours before Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst suspended the floor action, calling for a vote on an anti-abortion bill that would have severely curtailed abortions for women of low and moderate income. At that point, an angry mob of people roared their disapproval, delaying the vote until past midnight, when the Special Session ended.

One may read a previous report here:


  1. Why is no one reporting on how much its going to cost the taxpayers for another session that the same bill will pass,all newspapers and tv news is a joke in texas.

  2. The short answer is it will cost about $1 million for each special session. The "Texas Tribune" produced a short video that gives the details of the cost. It may be found at
