Michael Best Strategies Principal Beth Cubriel was quoted in “GOP Platform Committee kills bid to censure Cornyn at state convention” in myStatesman on June 14, 2018.
“Rule 44 is a good rule that has a place in our party,” said Beth Cubriel, the party’s former executive director who represents Senate District 25 on the platform panel.
But Cubriel said, “using it to censure four people on actions that were taken by many others in Congress from Texas who are not cited in this resolution — our president (who signed the spending bills) is not cited in this resolution — is bad implementation of Rule 44.”
“It makes it exactly what people who hate Rule 44 feared Rule 44 would become, which is a witch hunt, a personality-driven witch hunt against certain members that are disliked for various reasons,” Cubriel said. “If you are not going to censure everyone for voting for these three omnibus bills, you cannot support these resolutions.”
