From A Rick Perry Appointee

Salon reports that Rick Perry appointee Barry Smitherman, who runs the panel which regulates the oil industry in Texas, today tweeted an image which apparently calls for hanging the GOP Senators that helped advance the gun control bill. Smitherman is reportedly planning to run for Texas Attorney General in 2014.
“Barry Smitherman’s reprehensible action is disturbing, disgusting, and has absolutely no place in our political discourse,” Matt Glazer, the Executive Director of Progress Texas said in a statement. “To suggest that any American, let alone a U.S. Senator, deserves to be hung for a democratically cast vote is absolutely unacceptable.” The liberal group is calling on Perry to officially admonish Smitherman.
