Dade Phelan Hires Lawyers to Shut Down TFP TV Ad

WEATHERFORD — May 8, 2023 — On Saturday May 6, Texas Family Project was informed by TV stations in Beaumont that Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan’s attorneys had sent a cease and desist letter in an attempt to take TFP’s ad off the air.

The ad can be found here.

Phelan’s attorneys’ letter can be found here.

Texas Family Project Policy Director Austin Griesinger issued the following statement:

“Speaker Dade Phelan has had months to pass a bill to ban “family friendly” drag shows. Instead of speaking up in support of Senate Bill 12, Speaker Phelan hired high-priced attorneys to try to silence the truth.

It wasn’t until our ads started playing in his district that Phelan’s own State Affairs Committee scheduled a hearing on a policy which they could have debated months ago. We stand by our message and it obviously had an impact. Texas Family Project will be working to share it with more Texas families.”
