AUSTIN – Today, the Republican Party of Texas announced the release of its latest web video about Kristi Thibaut, the former ACORN lobbyist and current State Representative for House District 133. The video is featured at the website and highlights Thibaut’s failure to stand up for small business and protect Texas jobs.

RPT spokesman Chris Elam derided the record of the liberal State Representative. “The truth is – when it comes to creating and protecting Texas jobs – Thibaut’s rhetoric doesn’t match her record. Just like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, Kristi Thibaut’s legislative record reflects a philosophy of bigger government, increased regulation, and a higher burden on the families of Texas. This video illustrates the conspicuous absence of any deep-seated commitment from the former ACORN lobbyist to help the economy and create jobs, other than toeing the failed Democratic Party line.”

The video also exposes Thibaut’s liberal, anti-business voting record – rated one of the worst in the legislature by both the Texas Association of Business and Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.

Last month, the Republican Party of Texas launched the website,, which details Rep. Thibaut’s former career as an ACORN lobbyist, as well as her campaign contributions from numerous ultra-liberal special interests. Today’s video is the fourth in an ongoing series.
