Following this event Norred Law, PLLC has taken up Amy Hedtke’s case and filed a law suit naming State Representative Byron Cook, Sergeant-At-Arms David Sauceda, and Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, Steve McCraw, as defendants all in their official capacity.
There are few activists known as widely around Texas as Amy Hedtke. From her knee-high red, white, and blue boots to telling city council members to “go [expletive] themselves as they do their constituents” she is has made quite the reputation. Some love her bravery and frankness, and some hate her dress and attitude. Whether you’re a fan or critic, her latest act is likely to draw crowds of both. Amy Hedtke is suing State Representative Byron Cook of Corsicana, Texas.
Rep. Byron Cook is chairman of the State Affairs committee in the Texas House of Representatives and has been for several sessions. On March 22nd of this year Amy Hedtke was in attendance during the committee meeting as a concerned citizen and activist. Several bills were being heard that day including HB 200, a bill that would ban a type of partial birth abortion. Hedtke was there to testify on the bill and encourage them to pass HB 948, a bill to completely ban abortion. There is normally a live stream of the committee hearing that is archived, but they can be unreliable. This was true for the day before this hearing.
