Texas Republican Falls For The Old Filthy Fake Name Prank In Hearing
Texas state Rep. Jeff Leach (R) has become the latest lawmaker to fall victim to the fake name prank.
After a third-grade teacher spoke out against an anti-trans bill to the Texas House Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence on Wednesday, Leach called on other constituents whose names had been registered to comment.
“Is there a Connie Lingus here?” he asked, as people giggled around the room.
“What about Anita Dickenmee? Or Holden, Holden Middick?” he added.
“OK. Are any three of those people here?” Leach asked, appearing to know full well that they most definitely weren’t in attendance.
“All right,” he added. “You got your moment. I hope you enjoy it.”

Texas heard SB888 yesterday, an anti-trans bill targeting doctors caring for trans youth.

Leach took the gag in good spirits, telling Mediaite he looked forward “to meeting Connie, Holden and Anita one day soon.”
Last week, Florida state Rep. Will Robinson Jr. (R) succumbed to the same gag.
