OUTSIDER CANDIDATE MAY ABANDON PATTERSON

This week speculation has increased that a major political retreat is soon to come from Sheriff Henry Patterson and his relatively unknown Houston attorney who was set to run for either District Attorney or County Attorney here in Liberty County.

According to people on his campaign team, part of the effort to push voters to give Sheriff Patterson a second chance and a new four year term was having a struggling Harris County lawyer friend of the infamous Outsiders rent an apartment in Liberty and sign up to run for something and campaign with him.

Until recently Patterson’s team has stuck with the plan they hatched early this summer. James Farmer rented an apartment this summer so he can claim residency though he has no furniture in the apartment and he has not spent one night in it. He announced his candidacy for District Attorney a few months ago and was set to speak at political gatherings and tell voters to vote for Patterson. But when a change in plans occurred and Farmer signed to run for County Attorney instead of D.A. it began to smell “Fuddy”, I mean like Fuddy Williams the right arm of the Outsiders and, along with Eddie Shauberger, the Wizard of Oz behind the curtains for Henry Patterson. The Patterson re-election team’s strategy is expected to be as bizarre and secretive as Patterson having a group of people from outside the county come in and brag about “investigating” half the known world as they lurk in the shadows of the sheriff’s office firing off Open Records Requests as they gather information on Patterson’s enemies. In fact, these people are so strange speculation that James Farmer had changed his mind about helping the politically endangered sheriff began to swirl as Farmer’s political signs are yet to be planted in Liberty County soil.

Now more evidence that James Farmer is up to something has surfaced to cause speculation as Farmer failed to file his campaign finance report by the mandatory date of January 15, 2012. Farmer may withdraw his name from the race and Henry Patterson may not have a partner to run with. But who knows? Farmer may just not know the law or heck, Patterson could withdraw. Sheriff Patterson is yet to come clean and open up his records and publicize the specific of how he has spent the money and managed the assets of the slush fund created by confiscating convicted criminals’ belongings.

Patterson needs to move somewhere else if he wants to hire captains and county attorneys for Liberty County that have a proven record of failure.

This Farmer man with Henry Patterson the night he announced for D.A. What a joke!

Harry still hasn't learned, that some of us can't be bought. (or that we made it many decades- without a dime of his money, or him.)

Stupid plan by stupid people. Who would vote for Farmer?Who would care if Farmer is for Patterson?

That Eddie Shauberger sells himself on some of the whackiest ideas. He has had his butt on the line for over four years and still has not had a trial. Why would he care who is the sheriff? The sheriff is the least of his worries. It is politics that got him into this and he ought to try and put politics down and see if all of his troubles don't go away.

Harry's not alone, at wasting mega bucks (and I'm laughing at him, too.) Look at all the candidates, who've already dropped out of the GOP nomination process, and the hundreds of millions that they spent for the priviledge. All that they did was bilk a lot of donors, while enriching the media with advertising bucks. Just another example of the great redistribution of wealth (or the old axiom: there's gold in the business of stroking the human ego)!

Harry Williams' story,

(the same as Stan Jones', Bob Steely's, Eddie Lowery's, McAdams', Kirkham's, Fitz', Groce's, Hartel's, and soon to be-both the Barnetts' story)

is the pitiful sight of a washed up, dethroned politician... now, having to BUY influence- because they can't carry voters!!! LMAO

I say, take their money, then IGNORE them!

You people are something else! Where are the facts? You claim Farmer is such a misfit. How do I know that? I met farmer when he was with the Sheriff and he seemed like a normal enough guy to me.

""seemed like a normal enough guy""? (so does every other con artist)!

Eddie has always seemed like a flim flam man. Ray just seems like a no nonsense campaign operative. An example of Eddie's crazy spin is him responding to accusations that Farmer has no furniture in his apartment and has not even spent one night there even though he has paid over six months in rent, by blaming one of the people these people asked to keep an eye out for an apartment.

Henry, Wheeler, "squirrel" Hunt, Bradshaw, Pafford, Little, and Hinch are all slush fund amateurs. Look at how much the PROs rake in:

For a REAL slush fund eye-opener, follow the TARP, FEMA, and federal bail-out moneys. These Liberty County amateurs are piddling with chicken feed, by comparison.

If there is so many slush funds and money being messed with in our county, where are the real investigators called in. LIKE the FBI

FBI won't come, as they get money from the slush funds too! Several of the County Atty's slush fund's payments went to "other participating agencies"!!!
