If you are not familiar with the term “sock puppet,” then this is the perfect time to catch up.
In a new series of articles, we are examining which senators in Texas are likely to oppose Senate Bill 5, a bill that would significantly weaken the role of the state Supreme Court.
If you have not read the bill, it is currently being debated by the Senate Judiciary Committee and has already been passed by the full senate.
In short, this bill would gut the power of the Supreme Court, allowing the Texas Legislature to enact legislation that is even more regressive than SB5.
With a few weeks until Texas becomes a state, here are the six senators who will likely be voting against SB5: Kay Bailey Hutchison (TX) The Texas Senate Judiciary Chairperson is the first Republican to oppose the bill.
Hutchison told the Dallas Morning News that the Senate’s current version of the bill “does not make sense.”
According to the Morning News, “HB 5 would undo a decades-old court decision that allowed women to be convicted of rape based on the accuser’s sexual orientation.
It would allow judges to disregard the sexual orientation of victims, and it would allow victims of sexual assault to lose custody of their children.”
However, Hutchison says that the bill will be vetoed if it becomes law because of the “severely flawed” provision that allows the state to issue warrants to private investigators.
She continued, “I don’t know of a single case that has ever been proven that this bill has caused victims of rape to lose their custody.”

Kay Bailey Hutchinson is a Republican and she is the longest-serving chairperson in the Texas State Legislature.
She was elected in 2010 and has been in the Senate for 15 years.
She has also served as chairwoman of the Texas Commission on Judicial Performance and Chairwoman of Senate Judiciary.
The majority of her time as chairperson has been spent pushing for the creation of an “ethics board” to be established to review and review to determine if the conduct of the judges has been “improper.”
She also has been critical of the Judicial Conduct Commission.
Hutchsey has a history of voting to allow prosecutors to go to jail for the purposes of obtaining evidence in rape cases, a practice known as “false rape.”
She has voted to abolish the state’s rape kits, and in her own words, she wants to “put a stop to the sexual exploitation of young girls.”
She is also known for her support of an ALEC “Stand Your Ground” bill.
Kayla Scott (TX-14) Scott is a member of the House of Representatives and has served on both the Judiciary and Energy and Commerce Committees.
In the Texas House, she is known for pushing for legislation to repeal “bathroom bills” and to ban discrimination against LGBT individuals in housing.
Scott also voted against a measure to protect transgender people from discrimination in housing, as well as for an amendment that would have banned public schools from requiring students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match the gender on their birth certificates.
She is a staunch opponent of “bathrooms bills” that would require trans people to use facilities that correspond with their gender identity.
Scott has been the Chairwoman for the Judiciary Committee for five years and served as the chairwoman for two years.
The most recent election to the House was in 2013.
She voted to repeal a state-funded law that prohibited local governments from passing their own anti-discrimination ordinances.
However, she has also voted for the repeal of a federal law that prohibits local governments, counties, and other public entities from excluding LGBTQ individuals from employment or housing based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression.
She also voted to allow trans people in Texas to use the bathroom corresponding with their preferred gender identity when they use the facilities of their choice.
She does not believe that transgender people should be excluded from public accommodations, but she also believes that trans people should have the right to use whatever restroom they desire.
As of this writing, there is still no word on what will happen to Scott’s seat.
Karen Bass (TX-) In addition to being chair of the Judiciary, Bass has been a member for more than two decades and is a lawyer who has represented clients in a variety of civil rights cases.
In 2011, Bass was the first openly transgender elected official to represent a district in Texas.

She previously represented the state of Texas in the state court system and was appointed to the Texas Court of Appeals in 2012.
Bass was previously the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Policy, and is also the director of the Women’s Rights Project.
The House Judiciary Committee will vote on Bass’s nomination in February.
If Bass wins the seat, she will serve until January 2021.
Brett Bauman (TX), Chairman of the Rules Committee, is the third Republican to vote no on the bill in the
