HOUSTON — As Texas Republicans prepare for their convention in Fort Worth later this week, a newsletter from liberty activist Dean Wright hit my inbox yesterday highlighting two issues he thinks attendees should be talking about: illegal immigration and the admissions favoritism scandal at the University of Texas.
Wright wants to see grassroots Republicans hold the establishment accountable on both.
I’m always happy to see folks spreading the word about legislators abusing their office to bump deserving students from their places at UT for their own selfish reasons, but I think the imbalance between Wright’s two issues shows why the establishment is so often able to outmaneuver the grassroots.
