Ellis County reporter mistakenly claims Deuell given F grade for voting record

Looks like Ellis County Press reporter Joey Dauben owes State Sen. Bob Deuell a big apology and explanation!

Listing himself as a supporter on Facebook of Senate challenger Sharon Russell, Dauben has mistakenly claimed that Sen. Bob Deuell received an “F” grade from Americans For Prosperity for his voting record, when the truth is that he actually received a “C.”

Click here to see the AFP report.

AFP says they are committed to strengthening our constitutional government spending limits and giving taxpayers greater control over how much government we want and are willing to pay for.

Wonder why Dauben did that? Maybe he didn’t think anyone (like me) would check out the facts!

Uh Oh!

Senate challenger Russell warns Deuell: “It’s going to get bumpy.”

Got a chuckle today from a Facebook entry in which State Senate challenger Sharon Russell yesterday warned four-term incumbent Bob Deuell to get ready for a “bumpy ride.”

She was apparently a bit annoyed that Sen. Deuell had “tagged” or referred her on FB to an upcoming campaign event, plus his long list of endorsements (compared to her very few listed at her website: RussellforSenate2010.com).

He apologized and said it was inadvertant, but then she admitted she was on his list requesting info after all. So why would she get upset if she had already asked to be tagged?

Her words:

“Senator Deuell why did you tag me? This is your re-election Endorsements? Why do I care? This is the same people who elected you. Their endorsement of you- will just taint them as moderate progressive liberal’s. Our now Texas State Republican Chairman is the one and same Cathie Adam 2009 president of Texas Eagle Forum” WHO” graded you and gave you a conservative rating of 32% (F). Cathie Adams is the Texas State Republican Chair. In all due respect Cathie Adams has already posted her opinion of you as a conservative. She gave you a (f) I strongly suggest you buckle up. It’s gonna get bumpy!!!

Russell sounds a little confused. Plus why would Adams appear at his campaign kickoff event if she graded him at Texas Eagle Forum with a F?

Maybe that’s just politics….or maybe Russell is wrong. Anybody know? Let’s find out!
