Local Republicans issue press release calling for District 2 Texas House Representative Bryan Slaton to resign in the wake of a report issued by the House General Investigating Committee. See previous story here: Slaton Faces Expulsion
The following Press Release was received by KSST News:
For immediate Release:
It is with much sadness that we the below, 10 members of the 11 member Hopkins County Republican
Party Executive Committee, call on Representative Bryan Slaton to immediately resign as
Representative of House District # 2. After reading the report of the House General Investigating Committee, in the matter of Representative Bryan L. Slaton, there is no other recommendation that we can make. While we commend Representative Slaton for much good work, we cannot condone conduct unbecoming a member of the House of Representatives as set forth by the House rules and the laws of the State of Texas. It is our hope that Representative Slaton will heed our call and let the healing process begin with his family, the victim and her family, and all other parties involved. We encourage everyone to continue in prayer and lift all involved up in prayer to God for his loving comfort and healing.
