Today, the Texas House Republican Caucus issued the following statement regarding the vote to expel Representative Bryan Slaton from the Texas House of Representatives:
“The Texas House Republican Caucus holds its membership to the highest degree of integrity and honor. Today, we upheld those principles by voting to expel Representative Bryan Slaton from the Texas House of Representatives. We do not take today’s events lightly but were compelled to do so based on the severity of these circumstances. Harassment, retaliation, and sexual misconduct have no place in the workplace, and the actions of Representative Slaton do not properly reflect the Texas House. We hope the victims of this complaint can find peace after today’s vote, and that the staff in this building know that we stand with them in protecting our workplace."
