Gov. Greg Abbott (TX): Today’s “Ass-Kisser” Award Winner

 

Congratulations to….

 

Gov. Greg Abbott (TX)

Today’s “Ass-Kisser” Award Winner

 

Greg is another lawyer who learned early on how difficult it would be to earn a dishonest living practicing law. He then decided to go into the second most ethical profession (used car salesmen No. 1), politics.

 

Over the past 18 years Greg has had his significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough. If it wasn’t for a government check, he’d likely be working as a low paid public defender.

 

To show his ever lasting loyalty to the energy sector, Greg signed a law on May 18, 2015 that restricts the manner in which local governments in Texas can regulate oil and gas drilling operations within their city limits.

 

In truth, the law is in response to a ban on hydraulic fracturing that was passed by the voters in Denton, Texas in November 2014.

 

Greg’s gift to his handlers will prohibit cities from enacting ordinances, including any regulations on wastewater disposal wells, which numerous studies have linked to earthquakes. (Marissa Barnett)

 

The new law effectively makes Denton’s fracking ban unenforceable. Gregg applauded the law by laughingly claiming it was needed to protect mineral rights holders. Gregg obviously missed his calling as a standup comedian.

 

Hopefully Greg’s handlers in the oil and gas industry reimbursed him for the cost he incurred in purchasing Industrial Strength ChapStick.

 

Congrats Greg; keep up the good work! We should let everyone know of your amazing record as one of Americas Least Appreciated “Ass-Kissers”; you are far too

Humble.
