Sen. Charly Morisson Refuses To Answer Questions Over Underhill Remarks
By Thomas Carey | DECEMBER 24TH, 2018
At the time of the accusation, Sen. Morisson told SAN that Underhill was a "liar" and "living in fear because he will lose the Speaker elections."
However, after the clear victory on the Speaker elections, Sen. Morisson tweeted: "I want to congratulate Senator Frank Underhill on becoming Speaker of the House. Also, I want to apologize to Senator Underhill for calling him a 'liar'. That word was not appropriate and does not describe him. He is a good person who wants to improve our state!" - a clearly different message of feelings in comparison to his previous outrage towards the Speaker, for apparently making up false accusations.
Since the tweet was made, Sen. Underhill has not released any information that suggests he apologizes for making the accusations or that they were false. So James Washington, Late Night Politics host and SAN Anchor, asked Morisson to clarify the situation by revealing if he did ask for a Committee Chair position or if Underhill was lying. Sen. Morisson was reluctant to reveal the information but stated he discussed the previous inactivity of the Committee for Commerce & Science as well as projects that will be "revealed". He explained that the use of the word "liar" was inappropriate and that is why he apologized for it. He was asked several times to confirm if Sen. Underhill lied but brushed the question off by saying he had already answered the question.
He refused to directly label Underhill as a liar and denied that he asked for a Chair position. Eventually, James Washington ended the interview, saying "we're not getting anywhere here" and cut the broadcast. The interview has since outraged Las Colinas residents, many of whom sent texts to the show saying that Morisson did not represent their area. It is clear that there are some untruths which are not being revealed to voters.
If you are a resident of Las Colinas then we would love to hear from you regarding your thoughts!
