CONSTITUTIONALLY THE WORST FRESHMAN LEGISLATOROF THE YEAR AND SHE RAN AS A CONSERVATIVE
by the Watchman
We can understand the people of a district recognizing a name of a School Board Member that is seeking a higher office. We find it disturbing when we see candidates who run as Republicans who are really Democrats at heart. Unfortunately she even campaigned as a Conservative and won. It was painfully obvious that she needs a refresher course in the Oklahoma Constitution and a course in ethics wouldn't hurt either.
We began with the lowest scoring member in the House. We began by going to her state web site here
Representative Tammy West - Oklahoma House of Representatives. What we find interesting on this page is that she is assigned as Vice-Chair of the Higher Education and Career Tech committee. She is also the Vice Chairman of the Majority Caucus. Those are awfully lofty positions for someone serving their first term and first session in the House. We can't help but ask how many votes did she throw to get those positions? What promises did she make to the Speaker of the House?
