TPM called the Texas GOP and got a disavowal of knowledge from state GOP political director Hans Klingler.
"We had hundreds of vendors at the convention," Klingler said. "I don't know what the merchandise is, we don't check the merchandise."
Klingler added that the party would have done something if it had been brought to their attention at the time. "We wouldn't have let him sell it."
Fair enough. But as one commenter put it yesterday, "I guess we know who's getting the douchebag vote."
