Statement by Chairman James Dickey on Rep. Dawnna Dukes

Statement by Travis GOP Chairman James Dickey on Rep. Dawnna Dukes (D-Austin):

AUSTIN – Travis County GOP chairman James Dickey released the following statement today in response to an Austin American-Statesman report that State Rep. Dawnna Dukes (D-Austin), who is currently under criminal investigation, will break the promise she made to the voters of HD-46, and will instead remain in the Texas House:

“Dawnna Dukes is under a very serious criminal investigation. When she appeared mere days away from being indicted, she announced she would ‘resign’ on the first day of the new legislative session, thereby increasing her pension by thousands of dollars each year. Now, with a new Democratic District Attorney in office (Margaret Moore), State Rep. Dukes appears to be violating the promise she made to the voters of HD-46 that she would resign. This raises very serious questions. Was a corrupt deal cut with the District Attorney? Is the District Attorney dropping the criminal investigation, and if so, why? Why did State Rep. Dukes blatantly lie to the voters? Will honest and ethical Travis County Democrats stand by this corrupt Democrat and allow her to break her promise to the voters?”
