Even after Empower
Texans on Friday was rebuked by top Republicans across the state because
two staffers were caught on tape mocking Gov. Greg Abbott’s disability,
the group continues to publicly promote attacks on Abbott authored by one of
the staffers in question.
Meantime, more outtakes of
audio from the group’s podcast have surfaced in which homophobic rhetoric is
used and the Texas Public Policy Foundation, where Empower’s chairman Tim Dunn is Vice Chair, is
singled out for criticism.
