OMG. Literally. UPDATE:

Texas State Representative Brian Slaton is a “praise the Lord, Jesus is my savior, I am holier than thou” kind of representative. Yesterday the Austin Chronicle wrote a story about Slaton being AWOL from important votes on the budget, one that he had written numerous amendments to. In perfect Trump style Slaton responded:
“We are aware of outrageous claims circulating online by second-tier media that make false claims against Representative Slaton,” Short said. “As a result, he has been advised to forward all inquiries in this matter —including any that may relate to a possible complaint — to his legal counsel.”
Second-tier media. LOL. Just like Trump, but I digress. Today the Texas Tribune identifies why Slaton has hired a criminal defense attorney. According to the Tribune the holier than thou State Representative:
An internal complaint filed against state Rep. Bryan Slaton, R-Royse City, alleges that he was engaging in a potentially “inappropriate relationship” with an intern. The complaint came after an incident in which Slaton and the staffer allegedly met up at his Austin apartment last weekend.
Oops. According to Slaton he is a “a bold and brave Christian-Conservative” which means he is probably a giant hypocrite, like most who claim they are “a bold and brave Christian-Conservative”. It always seems that way. Slaton is one of those fire breathing anti-lgbtq member. He probably defends the sanctity of marriage, believing marriage is between one man and one woman, at one time much like Representative Tony Tinderholt who has been married 5 times with 4 different women. Slaton is on at least his second. Slaton runs on the typical topics, abortion, immigration, gun nuts, oh, and family values.
According to the Texas Tribune it looks like there is more to inviting a young intern to his apartment. It looks like he was encouraging her to not remember nuttin much like what Trump would do or a mob boss:
A source with direct knowledge of the incident told the Tribune that Slaton drank alcohol with the intern, who was under 21.
After the incident, Slaton allegedly showed the intern fake emails that purported to have information about the incident in what appeared to be something of a loyalty test, according to the complaint and a person with direct knowledge. After presenting her the email, Slaton allegedly told her to not speak with anyone about the incident.
Since this story has broken, State Representative Little Baby Brisoe Cain, pictured here after losing his mom at the airport, has called for Slaton to resign. LOL. This is going to delicious.
