Months ago, Dawnna Dukes declared that she’d resign her Texas House seat, effective Jan. 10, 2017.
On that date, the 11-term Austin Democrat, who’s been under investigation for possibly using taxpayer resources for nongovernmental purposes, joined House colleagues in getting sworn in to serve a fresh two-year term. Dukes represents House District 46, which extends from East Austin north into Pflugerville.
Dukes’ actions prompted us to roll out the PolitiFact Flip-O-Meter. In this special edition, the ratings are:
No Flip: meaning no substantial change of position.
Half Flip: indicating a partial change of position or inconsistent statements, or
Full Flop: a major reversal of position.
