A crony of Religious Right pseudo-historian David Barton will not be joining the Texas Supreme Court.
Rick Green, a former Texas state representative and “Christian nation” advocate, narrowly lost his bid for the bench in March to state Supreme Court incumbent Paul Green (no relation). Green has sought the seat before.
That Green was very nearly elected to Texas’ highest court is somewhat shocking. The Dallas Morning News noted that he has been described as a “serial abuser of ethics standards.”
