I'll be damned:
Robert Ricketts is the former Director of Accounting Programs and holds an Endowed Chair in Taxation at Texas Tech University, where he has taught since 1988. He is a CPA, certified in the State of Texas in 1984, and has bachelors, masters and PhD degrees in accounting. He has practiced, studied, written and taught about tax practice and tax policy for over 20 years. He is well-prepared to go to Washington and work to resolve our nation’s serious budget problems.
Raaahhh NaaahhhBahhh (think sheep, as in voted with the GOP party line 98% of the time sheep) is a real turd of a politician, even for a Republican. Just read Ricketts' reply downthread a little to see what an awe-inspiring wanker the good people of Lubbock opted for in '04.
An artificially conservative district, but hey, ya never know.
