    According to Texas Tribune

    https://www.texastribune.org/2019/10/21/texas-house-speaker-dennis-bonnen-future/

    "A quick exit could set up a fight over succession..."

    given that the current speaker pro tempore is a Democrat.

    Also, Texas Rangers aren't done with their investigation...

    Kinda looks to me like Gov. Abbott should call a special session for some odd reason, creating an opportunity to elect a new Speaker before the 2020 election, but that's not a perfect option either.

    Bonnen's past shenanigans are still gonna hurt us into the future.

    Will the criminal investigation stall because he is leaving office? I hope not.

    I don't know... this can only hurt the Texas Republican Party.

    With Bonnen out of the speakership and House by the next session whatever allows the Democrats the least advantage, even if it's that this scandal and Bonnen just fade away, is probably best for us.

    I take your point... We certainly don't want a Strauss/Bonnen lackey.
