Dan Flynn (politician)

Dan Flynn (born February 21, 1943) is a businessman and rancher from Van, Texas, who has been since 2003 a Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives from District 2 (Rains, Hunt, and Van Zandt counties).

In December 2008, Flynn authored a bill requiring public documents to be in English only as a means of encouraging non-English speakers to learn English.

In 2010, Flynn served as the Vice Chairman of the House Committee on Financial Institutions and as a member of the House Committee on State Affairs.

Late in 2010, Representative Bryan Hughes of Mineola in Wood County, claimed that Larry Phillips, a lawmaker from Sherman, told Hughes that Flynn and Erwin Cain, the newly-elected conservative representative from Sulphur Springs, would be redistricted for the 2012 elections because they had declined to commit to the second-term reelection of Speaker Joe Straus, a moderate Republican from San Antonio. In a hearing before the House Ethics Committee, chaired by another East Texas representative, Chuck Hopson of Jacksonville, an ally of Speaker Straus, Phillips denied having made such a claim to Hughes. Neither Hughes nor Phillips taped the conversation. No judgment was made by the committee because of the lack of corroborating witnesses.

    Upon entering my vein, the drug would start a warm edge that would surge along until the brain consumed it in a gentle explosion. It began in the back of the neck and rose rapidly until I felt such pleasure that the world sympathizing took on a soft, lofty appeal.
    Gus Van Sant, U.S. screenwriter and director, and Dan Yost. Bob Hughes (Matt Dillon)

    My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.
