PAT FALLON was last week caught on video badgering Shelley Luther, the hair salon owner, and candidate angling to take his Senate seat. Before berating Luther, Fallon appeared agitated, speaking to a room of SD30 voters.

The question was raised on Twitter might his apparent lack of respect for women exhibit itself in other ways? Possibly.

Fallon has backed the candidacy of his pal Rep. Drew Springer, who has had to suspend in-person campaigning after being quarantined with his wife, whose contracted COVID19.

In recent days, Springer and his surrogates (including Fallon) have shifted to the talking "vote for Springer because he's friends with swamp creatures”, including Governor Abbott.

Also backing Springer are his radical Democrat colleague Eugene Wu and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

There's a week of early voting left in the race. Turnout so far is right around 20,000 votes
