Heres the story as I was told it by a source that I trust.
During a recent the Democratic House Caucus, someone brought up the fact that Rep. Keith English was given a third floor office by the Speaker of the House. The general consensus was that it was a reward for being the 109th vote to overturn Gov. Nixons veto of a tax cut bill, a vote Speaker John Diehl allegedly had a hand in.
Im told the caucus raked English over the coals for his vote, and then Rep. Carla May stood up.
She allegedly told the caucus that when you join an organization and know the rules, you need to follow those rules. You need to behave. And Rep. English didnt. He broke the rules and now hes being rewarded for it.
English, being a cage fighter whos not afraid to stand up and face a battle, rose and responded that if thats true in the House, its true everywhere.
He then said that Michael Brown was walking down the middle of the street, breaking the rules. Maybe if he hadnt been breaking the rules, hed be alive today.
He then turned and walked out of the room. The caucus erupted.
Mic drop of the session? Maybe.
