Chart Westcott is a ‘Regan’ Republican

Sen. John Cornyn and Rep. Jeb Hensarling seem to be hanging their heads in shame over the misspelling.

I attended last Friday’s Park Cities Rotary Club meeting, which featured the four candidates for Texas House District 108. One of the men at my table said, “I don’t know if I live in this district.” The man next to him chuckled and said, “Believe me, if you did, you’d know it every time you checked your mailbox.”

Chart Westcott and Morgan Meyer are sending out mailer after mailer; I have seven from the former on my desk and six from the latter. (Only one from the race’s third Republican, Court Alley, has found its way to me.) When you’re distributing so much literature, you’re liable to miss a typo here or there.

But misspelling the last name of Ronald Reagan? As my colleague Todd Jorgenson put it, “To a Republican, that’s second to misspelling ‘God.’”

Disclaimer: I pored over all six of the Meyer mailers, looking for typos, before I posted this. I’m known for my editing skills, and I found none.

    What’s new? Another hiccup in the comedy of errors that is Little Lord Fauntleroy’s campaign to put something on his resume other than working for Daddy Westcott. First the sign stealing “scandal,” then the laughable web and TV ads, and now this.

    Three questions Little Lord Fauntleroy needs to answer:

    1. Did Little Lord Fauntleroy go to rehab for alcohol abuse while in law school four years ago?

    2. Why did Little Lord Fauntleroy donate to liberal Democrat Jerry Brown’s 2010 gubernatorial campaign in California?

    3. Which of Jerry Brown’s positions does Little Lord Fauntleroy agree with?

    I haven’t received that many from Meyer (just a few, and one from Alley) but have received at least half of dozen from Westcott. His mailers cover everything from his position on child predators to puppy mills. His list of endorsements is impressive but it is hard to take him seriously because he keeps sending out so many mailers on so many different subjects. If he has a passion around a particular issue, then great but getting so many mailers on so many different random topics makes me less likely to vote for him. Also – I would rather see him espouse real, conservative ideas (predators and puppy mills! Who’s in favor of them?!) instead of just bashing Obama for the sake of grandstanding. My overall impression after receiving so many mailers like this is that he is not mature enough to be ready for office. But I admit that with so many other people endorsing him, it’s obvious that lots of people, including some I think highly of, think otherwise. Regardless, he has so much money that I suspect he will win.

    Real McCoy do you do anything other than troll the comments section of PCP? And I’m thinking you’re about as “real” as a Morgan Meyer employee can get.

    Fake McCoy- please ask your son why he made a political contribution to California Democrat Jerry Brown in 2010 and then proceeded to seek elected office as a Republican in Texas. Is that not a legitimate question?

    Is Little Lord Fauntleroy capable of answering tough questions? Apparently not, considering the evasive, nonsensical answer he gave when asked about Tom Leppert’s “endorsement” and his probationary law license.

    Real McCoy – There was a mailer explaining the contribution to Jerry Brown’s campaign. He admitted it was a mistake and wouldn’t do it again (paraphrasing).

    Dan – Attorney General was also misspelled on that flier (or maybe it was one of the others).

    I’m a Court Alley supporter and former precinct chair/political junkie that saves all the mail. Just for the record, I have in front of me a postcard that on the front states, ‘Meet Court Alley’ I got back in December (?), a bigger postcard with former UP Mayors endorsements and a really nice letter from Court with an insert of quotes from many people I know. My elderly neighbor (with a Court sign in his yard) got a ballot request form with a pix of Court and his Mom. So I count 4 pieces. I also see Court and Chart both have ads on your website.

    I see this sword fighting between Westcott and Meyer to be childish on both sides. A spelling error. Are you kidding me? Worked on a case for the Morning Snooze? Get a life. The only choice here is between a rich kid too wet behind his ears, a high priced trial lawyer with an agenda and a down-to-earth, self-made businessman, family man and true conservative.

    I’m a proud ‘Regan’ conservative Republican and Court gets my – and my family’s – vote.

    Are we doing this again? Your grim obsession with this pointless little state house race is pathetic. It’s finally warming up outside. Go get some air.

    Court Supporter, you call Morgan a “high priced trial lawyer,” so you must not understand what that is. In our profession, a “trial lawyer” is known as a personal injury lawyer, that typically represent plaintiffs on a contingency basis. Morgan Meyer is a commercial litigator who represents corporate defendants involved in business disputes. The two types of law are completely different and cannot be compared. Morgan’s “trial” experience is an asset to his ability to debate bills before the legislature and represent his district professionally. But make no mistake, he is not a “trial lawyer” as that term has come to be known.

    Isn’t it Westcott who is the trial lawyer? As in on a trial basis. Bada Bing!
