Statement from Congr. Doggett on Today's SCOTUS Opinion

Congressman Doggett released the following statement to Burnt Orange Report today on the SCOTUS opinion, emphasis mine: "There is good news and bad news. The good news is that only Justice Clarence Thomas insisted on imposing the crooked Perrymandered map and rejecting the vital preclearance requirement of the Voting Rights Act. The bad news is that the Supreme Court did not affirm every aspect of the ruling by Judges Garcia and Rodriquez in San Antonio, so our primary election is not likely to proceed on April 3. Yet nothing in the Supreme Court order precludes a final congressional map ...

Rep. Doggett Shifts Emphasis to Latino Voters

U.S. Rep. Lloyd Dogget (D-Austin) has been serving the people of the State of Texas in some capacity or another for most of his life. As a congressman since 1995, he has represented mostly the Austin area, although with redistricting these boundaries have changed somewhat. The current redistricting snafu has forced Doggett to, at once file for Congressional District 25 (Austin), while he actively campaigns in Congressional District 35 (running from the Austin area to San Antonio.) We spoke to Doggett this week to ask him about his campaign, what he has learned about Texas’ burgeoning ...

Lloyd Doggett: "The Austin Tea Party and an ultra-conservative millionaire are behind the" campaign against the city’s light-rail proposition.
The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True | Lloyd Doggett says Austin Tea Party and conservative millionaire "behind" campaign against rail prop U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett’s smiling face appears on a mailer sent out by a group advocating voter approval of a City of Austin rail proposition on the November 2014 ballot. We noticed a not-so-happy message. "Don’t let the Tea Party fool you," says a headline below the photo of the Democratic congressman from Austin on the placard mailed to voters by Let’s Go Austin, a group that favors the proposal to spend $1 billion on a light rail line and roads. Doggett goes on to say: "Proposition 1 is a smart investment in Austin’s future." Below, he extolls ... >> More
Lloyd Doggett: As many as six federal department budget bills have been delayed because of opposition to amendments that would ban Confederate battle flag sales at federal building gift shops.
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Lloyd Doggett says opposition to Confederate flag limits delayed House action on spending measures A congressman told a Texas group that action on measures funding the government slowed this summer due to opposition to proposals banning Confederate flag sales.

Lloyd Doggett, a Democrat whose district runs south from Austin into San Antonio, stressed at a Sept. 3, 2015, Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce gathering that he hoped to help resurrect the U.S. Export-Import Bank.

Lloyd Doggett: Travis County is "surrounded by red counties."
The Truth-o-Meter says: True | Historically 'blue' Travis County surrounded by 'red' counties In a video endorsement of Andy Brown for Travis County judge, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett stressed the Austin lawyer’s past chairmanship of the county’s Democratic Party, adding: "I know he shares our values. He will stand up to the Republicans. We are surrounded by red counties." Six counties enwrap the capital’s county: Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Blanco, Burnet and Williamson. Unlike Democratic-blue Travis, are they all Republican-red? A standard way of gauging whether a state is red or blue, so to speak, is whether the Republican or Democratic nominee won the state in the latest presidential election. In 2012, Republican ... >> More
Lloyd Doggett: The Department of Homeland Security is "the only federal department not funded for this entire fiscal year" by Congress.
The Truth-o-Meter says: True | Lloyd Doggett says Homeland Security only federal agency not funded through 2015 fiscal year In a commentary, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Austin criticized border-security legislation advanced by a fellow U.S. House member at a time that funding for the Department of Homeland Security seems stand-alone shaky. Doggett, a Democrat, said the Border Security Results Act offered by Austin’s Michael McCaul, the Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, was premised on the unattainable goal of no unauthorized border crossers, making for a border tighter than that of North Korea. Moreover, Doggett wrote in his article posted online Jan. 26, 2015, by the Austin American-Statesman: "Our border security is being further ... >> More
