Humorists, entertainers, and Washington figures participated in

lighthearted jests at Texas Governor Ann Richards' expense in the

“roast” sponsored by Independent Action. Governor Richards defeated

conservative Republican candidate Clayton Williams in the 1990

election for the governorship of Texas. In her “acceptance” speech,

Governor Richards assailed the Democrats for failing to lead the national

discussion of the issues in presidential elections. She also roundly

criticized Republican leadership and policies. Music was provided by Jerry Jeff Walker and his Gonzo Compadres. close
