What do Battletoads, Double Dragon, citizen journalists and a Texas politics have in common?
Cook is a Texas State Representative representing a few small towns in Central Texas, including Anderson, Texas.
Last month, Cook who was chairing a committee hearing had mother and citizen journalist Amy Hedtke forcibly removed from the hearing – dragged down the hallway like a overbooked passenger on United Airlines.
The Texas state constitution permits public access and filming of government meetings. Cook chose to violate the law by having Amy Hedtke removed.
Cook is serving as a Republican but stands with Democrats in support of sanctuary cities and even proposed giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens in Texas.
Byron Cook appears to be a fan of political games which may come as his background as the publisher of the 1980’s video games Double Dragon and Battletoads.
Like the opening scene from Double Dragon where the woman in the red dressed was punched in the gut and carried away, Amy Hedtke (also clad in a bright red dressed) was dragged out under the orders of Byron Cook.
Funny–Rep. Cook (from today's video) is a Licensee of "Double Dragon," the 1987 arcade game…

Enter James O’Keefe to save the day.
O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, saw the incident on YouTube and took a flight down to Texas to investigate the matter.
Upon his arrival, O’Keefe proved the nature of Cook as he was also forced to leave the representative’s office while Texas law enforcement was called in to intimidate the leader of Project Veritas.
