Houston Office Of Senator John Whitmire, An Long Supporter Of LGBT Equality; Riddled With Bullet Holes After Over Night Shooting!


(Houston, Texas) The Texas Rangers and Houston Police Department are investigating who opened fire on the office of ‘one of the most powerful Texas lawmakers’ early Thursday morning in the Houston Heights neighborhood.

The incident occurred at the Yale Street office of Senator John Whitmire in the Houston Heights. The office was not open, and no injuries were reported.

Whitmire, a known advocate, and long-time supporter for ‘Equality’ in the LGBTQ+ community,  has attended fundraisers, and annually attends the F.A.C.E Awards Houston.

“When you look at the damage, and start tracing it, there are bullet holes here in the office, and at least four slugs… a couple of them ricocheted around,” a shaken  Senator Whitmire said, “There are bullet slugs everywhere. One lodged in a framed picture.”
