AUSTIN – The Texas Republican House Committee has launched, a website exposing the liberal voting record of Democrat State Representative Patrick Rose (District 45).

The initial launch of the site includes:

  • A feature of Rose’s abuse of his campaign funds, including charging 322 tanks of gas to his campaign account over the last 5 years (which is apparently all of them).
  • His scorecard from liberal and conservative groups (all passing among liberal groups – all failing among conservative groups).
  • His liberal voting record — voting with the most liberal members of the House 90% of the time.

“Patrick Rose has spent his entire career pretending to be a conservative on the campaign trail, but voting with the liberals on the House floor. Exposing the real Patrick Rose is long overdue,” said Republican Party of Texas Chairman Steve Munisteri.

“Today’s launch is just the tip of the iceberg. In coming weeks, House District 45 voters will be shown Rose’s complete docket of Washington-style spending, special interest pandering, tax increases and more. Stay tuned for the rest of the story,” concluded Munisteri.
