Stickland Responds To Absurd Accusations

State Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R–Bedford)

Thursday Jonathan Stickland reacted to the absurd accusations made by Cargile’s campaign.

Stickland commented on the story saying, “The Cargile campaign has pitched this “double dipping” story for the last 8 days and it has been turned down by multiple media outlets who, after evaluating the facts, found there was no story here. Notice how the liberal Dallas Morning News Reported on accusations, instead of facts.”

In their latest personal attack on Stickland’s character, Cargile’s consultants attempted to take $138,429.45 of Stickland’s campaign expenses and overlap them with $5566.10 Stickland received through travel vouchers on account of his official state duties. They attempted to claim there was $283.25 of overlap.

“The accusations are easily explained by the fact that my expense report reflects my credit card statement and is not a log of actual receipts. Like every American, the date the charge is posted often does not reflect the date the purchase was made. Furthermore, it is clear, on the reports, that when I purchased gas in my District it was for travel within the District. I never ONCE used my campaign card between my house and the capitol. Those gas stops are always covered by my personal credit card.” continued Stickland.

Another accusation the Cargile campaign made, and the liberal Dallas Morning News reporter David Barer failed to report accurately on, was an accusation that Stickland was in Austin on the 18th because of a dinner charge at an Austin restaurant and a youtube interview that indicated Stickland was in “Austin, TX”.

The Stickland campaign produced evidence via photos that Stickland was in his Kitchen in Bedford at the time of the interview. The interview was regarding his landmark email privacy bill. Viewers may notice the cabinets which are matching in both frames. Also David Barer was fully aware that Stickland’s ethics reports reflected bank charges, not receipts, but remained lazy in his reporting.

“These details were explained to the Dallas Morning News, but it’s clear that they had an agenda to make this a story, whether the facts supported it or not.” concluded Stickland.

Jonathan Stickland has been married for 7 years to his wife Krissy and has two children, Andie and Carlie. More information regarding Stickland’s conservative record can be found at

    Trump Wins! Harris County Republicans Suffer Biggest Loss in History of the HCRP

    Last night’s presidential results were historic. For the first time in decades, Republicans will have a uniquely consolidated power base, controlling the White House, Senate, and House, as well as a majority of governorships. As a result, we should be able to appoint conservative justices, eliminate Obamacare, get rid of the Johnson Amendment (which censures the church), cut the national debt, open up the energy markets, protect religious liberties, and so much more. As my friends at AFA stated, “We were about to go over the cliff. The knockout punch was about to be delivered to the America that our Founding Fathers handed to us.

    Now It Is Your Time And Your Turn!

    Now it is your time! Do you ever see destructive things going on around you and wish you had the ability and opportunity to stop them? Like when you hear the occurrence of some tragedy, do you ever wish that you could have been in the right place at the right time, to prevent it?

    On Tuesday, November 3rd, you have an opportunity to do just that. If you live in the city of Houston, you will have the opportunity to vote NO to Proposition One, the “bathroom” or H.E.R.O. ordinance.

    Contrary to the proponents of this ordinance, it has nothing to do with equal rights (which are already protected under federal and state law), but everything to do with promotion of sexual deviance in our society, in an effort for us to accept yet one more assault on our common sense and decency.

    If you were to order pizza for dinner tonight, but the phone attendant taking your pizza order asked you if you wanted dark meat or white meat, or crispy or regular skin, what would you think? Perhaps you had dialed the wrong number?

    You might feel similarly by reading the Republican Party platform and comparing it to the words and actions of so-called “Republicans”, from Harris County to Washington D.C.

    Let’s take the City of Houston mayor’s race. We have two “Republican” candidates, Stephen Costello and Bill King.

    Support Lance Berkman Vote “No” on Proposition 1 Bathroom Ordinance

    Six time Major League Baseball All Star, Lance Berkman, recently took a bold principled stand in opposition to Houston Proposition 1 – The Bathroom Ordinance. The liberal left and LGBT community are attacking Lance Berkman for having the courage to stand on his principles. He needs our support.

    Lance Berkman is getting bashed in the sports media because he exerted his First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech by recording a radio commercial, opposing Houston’s Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance. His commercial began airing this past Thursday. The Bathroom Ordinance would allow troubled men, who claim to be women, to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.

    Houston City Council Is Legislating Immorality To Allow Boys Into The Girls Bathrooms and Showers

    For many years we have all heard from both the Right leaning Democrats and the Left leaning Republicans that we cannot “legislate morality”. While for now I will not address the stupidity of this I would like to make a few points for you to ponder.

    The City of Houston is trying to legislate morality, but in there their Godless hearts they will fist attempt to re-define “morality” before they legislate it so that it to include the sexually confused and the sexually perverted.

    When you go to vote during early voting and on November third, and hopefully you will vote, the first thing you will see is Proposition one, also known as the HERO or “bathroom” ordnance.
