I have repeatedly said that the GOP looks more and more like a crime family. Speaker Casada has put people on the state payroll who don't work, suppressed evidence in a sexual harassment case against a GOP legislator, and supported the most vile of campaign lies against opponents through his PAC. Now this...

The state confirmed the House Speaker, Lieutenant Governor and the Senate and House Chief Clerks are able to listen to and watch the rooms where committee meetings are occurring.

Democrats claim that it gives people in those offices the ability to spy and listen in on any conversation in those rooms. Democrats held caucus meetings at times in those committee rooms that they thought were in private.

Why wouldn't this be a felony?
