Questions for Liberty County Sheriff Patterson

Inquiries have come into Liberty Dispatch questioning Henry Patterson’s management of the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department money.

For fiscal 2010 Liberty County Sheriff Henry Patterson has not filed reports which would show the public the amount of seized assets or forfeitures money he has on hand.

Liberty Dispatch readers question and wonder why Henry Patterson has chosen not to disclose how much money he has seized from criminals.

There is much public speculation about where the money has gone either in part or in whole. The money seized by Patterson could be as much as one million dollars, but there is no trace of the money or disclosure- including how some of that money may have already been spent.

Liberty Dispatch readers wonder if some of the money Sheriff Patterson has underneath the Sheriff's Office mattress has been given or paid to "the outsiders" and Clifford Fuddy William as a "consultant"? Money paid to Fuddy as a "consultant" to "get" the long list of "the outsider's" and Patterson's political enemies- i.e. Joe Warren etal?

This story is about the seized and forfeited money Patterson has with no oversight or accountability used to pay for rouge investigations, retaliation, his political operatives and campaign disguised as "paid consultants".

The questions continue...

The biggest reason I read this website is that you guys ask someof the questions I have,and you ask some questions I didn't know I should have asked.

Talk about a can of worms.....

When these kinds of funds are audited it is the way money has been spent that can cause a scandal.

Anonymous said...

When the chatterbox has yapped about these people he has talked about "investigations" done for Patterson.. So my question is are these people getting paid now or later.

These Outsiders are INSIDER WANNABES.

Why do politicians look at these tyoes of questions as some kind of gotcha. They should just answer the questions the people who pay their salary ask and that would be the end of it.

Anonymous said...

I am no fan of Patterson's but a great deal of it has to do with his "no show" reputation. If he would publicly answer these questions himself, I would be impressed.

Anonymous said...

Who cares if you are impressed? Henry is a busy man and does not have to appear in any particular place to answer a question. he has a spokesman if he chosses to respond to this joke of a website.

Anonymous said...

These questions are no joke to me. WE THE PEOPLE deserve to know these large sums of money are being managed appropriately.

Everyone who contributes to this site acts like they like Henry Patterson. Why the tough question?

The chatterbox has said over and over you people better watch what you say. So save the "shame on you" stuff for answering them?

If Akins and Pegues are not just POS then why don't they show up at the Sheriff's morning coffee club in Cleveland at between 7:00 and 9:00 am any day of the week and ask him whatever questions they have?

Anonymous said...

Why does Sheriff Patterson's campaign team always want voters to come before their gang to ask Henry questions?

Anonymous said...

Most of us are at work by 7 or 8. I wouldlove to just hear the sheriff's voice, but I am not driving from Dayton.

Anonymous said...

Why not just make an appointment with Eddie Shauberger or this Fuddy guy if you want answers?

Sheriff Patterson is no politician but he iis available to answer questions at breakfasts every morning.

Does repeating this "meet me at breakfasts with my buddies' answer mean he is not going to respond to how much money he has pulled in off of seizures and how he has spent it? I thought so.

Anonymous said...

Project that!

if he is always still in Cleveland from 7-9am, then how could he have been in his accident a few months ago in liberty at 8am? i guess you liberty dispatch folks don't get out much.

Anonymous said...

Excuse me sir.If I amgoing to take off work to FINALLY get to hear Henry Patterson, are you telling me he may or may not be there?

Anonymous said...

No. This Patterson apologists is telling you to go to call the restaraunt and if henry is not there he may be in an accident on the way to Liberty......

Anonymous said...

FYI Henry is at breakfasts closer to 5:30 AM than 7:00.

Anonymous said...

Wow! So if I want to talk to the sheriff I can drive to Cleveland, talk to him, and then go to work. What a deal? That beats the heck out of him me just reading or listening to him being interviewed, huh!

Anonymous said...

how about daily breakfast here in dayton? or does the sheriff know where dayton is or care about our votes?

Anonymous said...

Ha ha ha! Ole Henry's chatterbox brags that Cleveland is wrapped around Henry's finger and they will vote for himno matter what. So the purple broncos are out of luck as far as a daily breakfast.

Anonymous said...

my guess is that no one from LD has even called the sheriff and asked for an interview.

Anonymous said...

Hey if I make a breakfast you think I could meet Eddie and Fuddy and Robert Valdez's momma?

i am the person defending the sheriff. NEWSFLASH!!!!! i am from DAYTON!!!!

Anonymous said...

This sheriff has the nerve to act like he is not interviewed because of anyone other than his own hiding from the media! After three years of this, no sane person would believe that. First Steve Greene shielded him, then Rex Evans - now the ole "not asked for an interview" spin? You ar asking too much when you ask people to believe that. Go to the radio station or one of the papers or send a press release out (if you don't want to answer any more questions). They should all be tired of waiting to hear from the sheriff, but shock them and say something.

Send Eddie or Fuddy in a Patterson disguise.

I sure hope these outsiders pull the curtain soon over their glass houses. Seeing a second CPS investigation in one of the windows is a sad sad site.

You might want to have your health checked by your doctor (cholesterol, bp, heart rate, etc.,) before attending the sheriff's bf locale. Word is, that some combination of the food, company, conversation or atmosphere can cause air ambulance rides.... Right, Capt. Evans? (oh, I forgot. I specifically asked him, recently. He said, and I quote: "I don't eat there")! Who says you can't rib these guys, a little? lmao

Boy oh boy oh boy, that sheriff Patterson can eat breakfast. And all at Cleveland restaraunts. The Chamber must love you advertising that. So when Eddie Shauberger and Cliff Williams guarantee no one from Cleveland will vote for anyone but someone from Cleveland, they can say this because Patterson eats with everyone there.

I hope money from bad guys is not going to people organizing a cult here in Liberty County.

LC already has cults: Political Action Committees, telling folks how to vote, while masquerading as churches and non profits! Right, Eddie?

Looks like the truth hurts huh, Fuddy, Shauberger and Patterson... Even Sheriff Patterson's son-in-law Chris Minx is harassing and threatening Liberty Dispatch contributors.

Anonymous said...

I was at a Commissioners Court MeEting in September and the Sheriff never showed up for that. I think he must be incompetent to answer any questions about anything. We need a Sheriff who can talk to us and give some straight answers to what he is doing and what is going on in Liberty County. Patterson was all over the place trying to get elected. Now we never hear or see him.

Anonymous said...

he's only brave enough to 'harass and threaten', because he's got the sheriff to go running to!

Anonymous said...

I wrote Liberty Dispatch and told them to call me so I could educate them on why sherrif Patterson is a good sherrif.Soon afterwards They called but they had caller ID block on their phone. I wrote and told them to take the caller ID block off and I would answer. I told them to come out from behind their computers and phones talk man to man. They called three times, but always with their names blocked. What chicken sh*ts! I BET YOU WON'T PRINT THIS! .

Chris Minx is just another one patterson's criminal type cronies.

Anonymous said...

Chris Minx from dayton texas who now lives in Cleveland Texas acts like a criminal and is protected by his father in law sheriff henry patterson.

LD said...

Chris Minx, you are invited to any of our houses or you can answer your phone if you want to talk to any of us. But if you want to tell us what to do with our stuff, we suggest you set up your own website and say what you want to say and set up your own phone the way you want to. Being the son-in-law of Sheriff Patterson doesn't entitle you to any special privileges that we are aware of.

Birds of a feather... patterson

I know Minx and he lives at 20 CR 2208-2, Cleveland TX 77327 and his phone number is 281-659-5471.

Hmmmm. Sounds like a pimple faced hot head that fears the boogie man is in the phone wires.

Hey Chris, settle down and don't show your youth and inexperience. Just get your pa-in-law to answer the same kind of questions he has wanted other public officials to answer. No big deal.

Anonymous said...

Chris Minx drives a brown dodge dually truck that's illegally loud and annoying just like him.

Anonymous said...

I agree about settling down. The worst thing a public official can do is start making things personal when he is running for offices.You might land some punches but nobody is running but the candidate, and the candidate suffers. I am not a Patterson fan but I was happy when Arthur got beat.

Seems like I heard that name Miinx as being a member of the KKK.

I went to school with Chris Minx. He was a year younger than me. I wouldn't bother messing with him. The biggest thing that ever happen to him is when his wife's father was elected sheriff. He has a tall mouth and a short memory, if you know what I mean Chris boy.

This reminds me of when the Hight boys tried to influence the last election.

Outsiders, Eddie Shauberger, son-in-law (Chris Minx)...

Henry, you need to clean house. With that group running/jackassing your re-election PR, you haven't got a snowball's chance of re-election.

Ditch them and get a quality re-election group.

Tell the son-in-law to stay home, shut his silly mouth, get off the web, and not go to your breakfasts, public events, or coffee clubs (doesn't he have an infant, where he SHOULD be, instead)???

You need to throw that entire bunch under the campaign bus, or the re-election effort is finished. Sorry, to break it to you, but you're KNOWN by the company you keep!

I sent in an anonymous comment about five minutes ago and just noticed that there are several similar comments. Could you please delete my comment? I donot want to be a dead horse.

Anonymous said...

no, Chris, you didn't send my comment, 5 minutes ago, nor any other time. So, quit asking for a deletion. The truth was told and posted.

History shows the following: Jimmy Carter had Billy "billy beer" Carter. Bill Clinton had Roger Clinton. Sheriff Patterson has Chris Minx... Two out of three continued their political careers, and had sense enough to put the family skeleton back in the closet.

Your move, Patterson!

Anonymous said...

I have a question... If henry hasn't paid the outsiders,let's see a denial by Patterson and fuddy?

Anonymous said...

Face it, Chris Minx, Patterson's top three political liabilities are: YOU, Fuddy, and Eddie. (Yes, your recent, over the top activities, jumped you to number ONE)! The sooner he gets his family skeleton (YOU) back in the closet, the sooner he can start repairing his floundering re-election bid. So, please, if you have one ounce of respect for Henry- leave the PR to the professionals. You are totally unskilled in the field, costing him untold numbers of supporters, daily.

Anonymous said...

I have two questions:

What are these people going to do when the votes are counted next November, and Henry isn't the winner?

Do they really think that the few hundred Cleveland voters will carry the county?

Anonymous said...

Hey Chris? This ain't a subtle hint. These aren't suggestions... These are clear and firm ORDERS!

Go to work. Go home. STAY home. Raise your family. Stay off the phone. Don't threaten. Don't text. Don't email. Don't twitter. Don't MySpace. Don't Facebook. Stay off the internet. Don't write comments. Stay out of blogs. Stay out of chat rooms. Stay out of political and social events. BUTT OUT!

Patterson needs to be called before court to answer about all of that money coming through his department that is not on his budget. That will be worth his time ....or us taxpayers' time.

Anonymous said...

Then, tell your Commissioner your concerns, so that he/she, (on your behalf,) can place it on the agenda (of submit requests for accounting directly to the LCSO.)
Duplicate the requests to the County Clerk, County Treasurer, and the County Auditor.

That's supposed be the way that the representative form of government is DESIGNED to work...

BTW: I've already done exactly that, last August, with both the county treasurer and the county clerk- with respect to similar funds from Little, Wheeler, and Hinch (hot check fund, seized property fund, gun range fund, etc...)

Both of those ladies responded, courteously and promptly. They are fully onboard (and constantly working to that end,) with the idea that ALL funds must be on the record, fully audited (via the County Auditor,) approved at Commissioners' Court, and accounted for. I've gone so far as to request that they immediately impound all bank accounts and checkbooks, from any and all other county departments and entities.

Hey Chris. Sign up for school board. If your wife will vote for you, and your mother... you should garner about THREE votes!
(don't count on Henry as a vote.
He's seen your work)! lmao
