In the 2012 Republican primary campaign advisor to all of the Outsider candidates, Eddie Shauberger predicted the more people who run against incumbent Henry Patterson, the larger his victory will be. Shauberger predicted Will Cox could not even win the Cleveland vote and that Bobby Rader would lose in the Dayton area.
Shauberger’s political analysis also includes an upset victory by Outsider candidate James Farmer. According to Shauberger, Farmer’s bankruptcy and business failings are in the past and that the fact that Farmer has never lived in Liberty County will be spun to tell voters he has no connection to the good ole boy network. (Editor’s note: Shauberger and the Outsider’s are James Farmer’s good ole boys).
Shauberger thinks Logan Pickett is too young and he is too closely associated with the problems of retiring District Attorney Mike Little. He also thinks that though many people put on their happy face when talking with the Pickett family because of how powerful they are perceived to be, most people could be happy to see their notoriety fade away with this current generation of elders.
Shauberger has told us that when he gets through smearing Bobby Rader’s name he will lose by a landslide. When asked what he could smear Rader with since Rader is known to be a real good person, Shauberger said Rader has made too many public decisions to escape being “covered in mud” by election time. When Shauberger was asked why he would do that to one of the pioneers of the current Republican change, Shauberger just glared at us like we were ignorant. A charge that we must plead guilty to since almost everyone we know wants a change in this sheriff’s race.
