Beth Moves Fast

Beth Harwell acted to deal with the Curry Todd situation in a hurry-unlike her famous Democratic predecessor in a similar situation:

What happened to Curry Todd would likely not have happened if Todd were a Democrat while Jimmy Naifeh (D-Covington) was Speaker of the House. As is well-known, Naifeh was prepared to allow former Representative Rob Briley to keep his Chairmanship, but Briley resigned realizing that he had a serious alcohol problem that nearly led to him being incarcerated, and that if he remained in place the political pressure on him would never let up. Beth Harwell was not about to put the House Republican Caucus through drama over what would happen to Curry Todd, she dealt with it immediately and swiftly.
