Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst’s recent foot-in-mouth moment, when he was recorded trying to use his name and position to bully an Allen police officer into giving a relative special treatment, taught the Texas Republican an important lesson.
Just not the right lesson.
The embarrassing life experience didn’t teach Dewhurst to act more professionally and ethically next time. Nope, it taught him to make sure nobody’s recording him the next time he tries to use his influence for special favors.
