Conservative Republicans are slamming their colleague, state Rep. Bryan Slaton, after reports emerged this week of an ethics complaint filed against him alleging he had an inappropriate relationship with an intern.
So far, two GOP lawmakers have called for Slaton to resign, and a third has proposed amending a bill creating the criminal offense of child grooming to specifically target his alleged activity. All of the members rebuking Slaton are, like him, among the most conservative of the Texas Legislature and typically agree with him politically.
