FOLLOWING THE MONEY

In his unsuccessful bids to be the state representative from this area, records reveal Eddie Shauberger received contributions of well over a quarter of a million dollars. Far and away the majority of this money was from a few large donors rather than receiving small donations from people around the district. It is interesting to go back and look at some of those donations in light of Shauberger’s multiple run-ins with the law.

In October 2002, records show something of special interest to those who have witnessed Shauberger’s strange public life. That was the year that the Tom Delay scandal happened. TRMPAC allegedly was used to funnel illegal corporate donations into the campaigns of Republican candidates for State Representative. Records reveal Eddie Shauberger’s campaign received several thousand dollars from TRMPAC that year.

Also of interest, when reading Influence Explorer campaign donor analysis are three donations of more than $10,000. Two of Shauberger’s large donations come from the Palmerez brothers. These brothers are the same ones Shauberger made all kinds of allegations towards when he was charged with a felony involving business dealings with them. Speculation that after a few years of bitter dispute, Shauberger and his long time friends have rejoined forces with each other to conspire against Ray Akins, have neither been confirmed or disproved.

Also a $10,875 is credited toward Richard Pegues, the County Chairman at the time. When Mr. Pegues was asked about this donation he appeared surprised.

“I tried to help Republican candidates in any way I could, but I never donated that kind of money to anyone. Why does my name appear on there? I don’t know. What was Eddie’s involvement with Congressman DeLay? These kinds of questions can best be answered by the candidate.”

There would be nothing illegal about donations from Pegues or the Palmerez brothers as long as they were not corporate donations. Pegues owned no corporation. Like the Palmerez brothers however, Pegues has parted company from Shauberger, but unlike them, he continues to have serious concerns about the man he thought he knew well.

“I don’t know if he has changed or if I was just always blinded by our friendship from church. It is like he has a list of people he that he feels he needs to exact revengeon. It appears he will use any means necessary. This is far from our pact to work to elect good conservatives tolocal offices,” Pegues said.

Eddie Shauberger victimizes everyone he lures into his web with his sliver tongue. The list of people victimized by him is a long and well known in Liberty County. Our family and several other families in our church have been victims of his cons.

Im a Republican but this kind fraud by Shauberger and Delay is unforgivable. I think Akins got pulled into Shaubergers fraud unwittingly and is a victim of Shauberger's acts and a victims of Liberty County politics too. But as for Shauberger, Im not a Mike Little fan but I think Little did a good thing indicting Shauberger.

Eddie Shauberger's fraud on his "friends" even happened to Richard Pegues. It appears Shauberger was trying to hide campaign money coming in from corporate donors and used a close friend (Pegues) unwittingly, hmmm sounds familiar don't it Ray????????

I saw Shauberger take cash from lots and lots of people during the IKE cleanup. The AG's office came down to investigate but Shauberger pulled a fast one and hid the money. No trail... God knows what you did to your congregation and all the people who poured out their heartfelt offerings you put in your wallet.

You are a abomination and false prophet!

I don't understand why Eddie Shauberger's name keeps coming up. If I were his freidn or family I would tell him to not worry about who wins the sheriff race here in Liberty County. According to what I read, he lives in Oak Island. Oak Island is Chambers County. Why does he care who wins the Republican primary race for sheriff? And why does Patterson have all of these "characters" that are not really from around here hanging out in restaurants feeding him political and law enforcement advice?

Pitiful. Shauberger is seen on a regular basis with the "Patterson campaign" people. Akins is in Missouri. Shauberger accuses Akins of trying to use the sheriff to help his case. Absolutely pathetic Eddie. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Does Shauberger think everybody but him is stupid? he has a great deal to be ashmed of besides his odorous connection to Henry Patterson. People in the Oak Island church need to get in touch with the discernment they have been equipped with and stop drinking the koolaide.

True about birds of a feather. Who we go to church with and who is in our political party does have an effect on who we are friends with. I am glad to hear Richard is away from the snake oil salesman and still on the mission to help change our politics. I know this has been tough..... betrayal always is.

Geez, must be miserable to hate everyone and look like Captain Kangaroo's illegitimate brother.

yes, every travel destination, every Caribbean island, and every retirement day in the pool, is oh, so miserable... (especially, the steaks on the barbecue)! So, eat your corrupt little heart out. Captain Kangaroo never had it so good, because he had to tolerate the corrupt media, for a living. Yes, the similarites end, right there. But thanks for linking me to marginally famous people, though he was solely a local entity. lmao

"hate everyone". Hardly. Dennis loves everybody (just not YOU)! lol

as for the attacker above, I wouldn't normally quote anything from the 90's white house residents, however.... the daughter said: "I do also believe that if you have the right type of enemies, you're doing something correct."
