McLeroy out in Texas

Texas Board of Education chairman Don McLeroy’s nomination to continue in that capacity was just rejected by the Texas Senate.

For all the gory details, check out TFN’s liveblog. The vote was 19-11 in favor, and requires 2/3 for approval. The Senate President briefly had trouble with the math, either thinking 19>20 or that 30 * 2/3 ? 20, but it all sorted out.
