YOUNG LADDER CLIMBER ATTACKING REPUBLICANS

Logan Pickett on ladder, Mike Little holding
Watching trends in political campaigns can tell observers a great deal more about some politicians than they want us to know. For example, when Logan Pickett started his campaign off by emphasizing “experience”, it only magnified how truly inexperienced he is.
 
Pickett has made it difficult to vote for him when he indicated his experience versus Karen McNair’s. Pickett embellished, obscured and even downright lied about his experience. Then when the truth was told and voters became very aware that Pickett could not possibly have anywhere near the experience of Mrs. McNair, Pickett attacked the Republican Party.

Now Pickett’s campaign is either showing a total disregard for voter’s recent decisions and Republicans break-thru at the polls or they are just totally desperate to find some reason for voters to elect him. For example, local Republicans have for years questioned John Archer having his hands in  in local tax collecting. Archer and his wife have alternately been the county chairman of the Democratic Party, and they have also periodically been involved in collecting delinquent Liberty County taxes.  Countywide suspicions have been confirmed about Democrat Mark McClelland choosing the Archers again and again to collect Liberty County taxes and then "advancing" or "paying" Archer before John Archer collected even one red cent. There is no record of Logan Pickett or his father, Liberty City Mayor Carl Pickett or DA Mike Little filing charges or expressing ANY concern about Archer or the checks made out to him by the Mark McClelland – Copies of these checks some say "illegal checks" made to Archer (checks of more than $10,000 each) have been posted on Liberty Dispatch.

Now Pickett is attacking the decision of three newly elected Republicans in choosing a new way of dealing with this troubling area and the results of that decision are yet to happen. there is no record of Pickett raising questions about the Democrats handling of this issue - an issue that involves hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars.

In an effort to get passed the fact he is short on experience compared to Karen McNair, the Logan Pickett campaign is attacking the Republicans who voters have overwhelming elected. Instead of  giving the commissioners court a thumbs up for recently selecting a very highly respected attorney that is beyond the grasp of John Archer, Logan Pickett (a supposed Republican) wants to win so badly he is theorizing a conspiracy that is centered around his own party and Craig McNair.

Pickett publicly incoherently rambles about Craig McNair and how his sister is somehow involved in a conspiracy. Voters overwhelmingly elected the County Judge and County Judge Craig McNair has at most one vote in commissioners’ court. Does Pickett think the County Judge is a dishonest?  -or- Is he simply allowing McNair’s character to be disparaged and the Republican Party to be tarnished unfairly because it is the only negative thing he can say about his opponent? If he has any evidence of a crime - other than being his opponent - he should know (with almost two years of experience) what to do.

Is Pickett saying to Karen McNair, “Okay, people now know you have a lot of experience and I have very little, but I will make them vote for me because I will scare the hell out of them by painting your brother as a bad person?”

If he wants to climb the ladder of success and rule and reign in Liberty like his family expects, he may want to try and not alienate the voters and the local Republican Party.

We believe all of Pickett's odd ramblings have been connected to some sort of diversionary tactic. There have been repeated allegations and calls of domestic abuse issues surrounding Logan Pickett that have many Liberty County voters very concerned.  Pickett's diversionary tactics have not quieted the public concerns surrounding his domestic abuse allegations.

Contributor’s Note: Liberty Dispatch has not previously mentioned our suspicions about Logan Pickett signing up to run for office as a Republican based on Mike Little's urging. Now… we openly question Logan Pickett’s running for office as a Republican because of his actions to harm our party and those who are the respected backbone of our party like Judge Craig McNair, Judge Cain, Judge Morefield, Judge Chambers, Judge Rader and County Attorney Karen McNair.

Shame on you Logan Pickett... You have obviously been corrupted by Mike Little.

Pickett's party affiliation is not near as concerning to me as his integrity. His lies about his experience got this race off to a very negative start. Now his supporters are slinging mud on people in his party and then attaching them to his opponent - disgraceful. that kind of manipulation may effect the public's view of him way beyond this election. He would be wise to publicly rebuke the people attacking these newly elected public officials.

Now let me get this straight. A new delinquent tax attorney will takeove sometime in the future and Logan Pickett is predicting there will be problems and therefore voters should elect him. Thank God tehre is a new person Pickett is young and has no D.A. in gear and find out why this money was being sent in. Notice there was a new tax collector may not have been sent out .......... There may be conspiracies Pickett, but they are not connected to your opponent or her family. So are you still interested?

Is the new delinquent tax attorney Randy Gunter's firm. Is Logan implying Randy is going to screw the county. The reason I ask is everybody I know thinks Randy Gunter is one of the finest,most community-minded people in this county. Are we going to have one of the last minute dirty campaigns where a politician just starts saying whatever they think will help get them votes?

That picture you have of Prickett and Little lines up Mike Little in a position close to Prickett im sure he likes. Ive noticed Little and Prickett spend a lot of time alone in Little's office.

this website never makes any sense. So Karen McNair has been an attorney forthirty years and Logan Pickett has only practiced for five years. The fact is Karen McNair has never worked in the district attorneys office and Logan will soon have been there for two years. Now dumb ass, I ask you, who has the msot experience.

The answer about experience is still Karen McNair. Please read this website and you will see she has far more experience in the courtroom and out of eat prosecuting criminals. What she does not have in her experience is the several months that Logan has in lying about his credentials.

Almost two years. You can't rebutt that dumb ass!

Your claim to experience was already rebutted very effectively but let me add my two cents. The number zero is not very impressive to me. Mr. Pickett has never, not once, handled a case by himself. He has handled a precious few even as a part of a team, but ZERO SOLO prosecutions. Oh and by the way, your name calling is ironic since your candidate is an assistant d.a.

Joe Warren is the lawyer that is showing Lord Fauntleroy a/k/a logan Pickett the ropes. he is a hothead, but Lord already had that down before the tutoring.

Hey Logan since you bring up county taxes, how about your buddy McClelland "selling" tax abatements????????????

More selective prosecutions from your bud Mike Little?

Sounds like Young Democrats for Logan have now spoken.

Because of his inexerience, Logan Pickett is not in a position to "manage" the current legal staff in the D.A.s office, HE IS IN A POSITION TO BE MANAGED. Voting for him is like electing Joe Warren. Joe Warren did not even recommend himself by running so why would we set ourselves up by voting this way.

Mike Littlecounts Logan Pickett part of a winning team if he carries someone else's briefcase into the courtroom. He has as near to zero experience as anyone who has ever run for Liberty County DA.

Logan is a poor lawyer. Why doesn't someone just say it. That is not mudslinging, it is reality. If his name was Logan Smith, he would not bother to run.

Those who are inflating Logan Pickett's record and deflating years and years of McNair's record should realize just because they downgraded FIFTY cases and sent them down to the D.A.s office doesn't mean voters have to listen to their political spin. Those fifty cases are more than Pickett has handled in his entire career.

Careful now,you are dealing with the upper echelon in Liberty.

It is unfortunate that Joe Warren is Pickett's mentor for the most part. Joe has some positive attributes but he will never be chosen or even considered as a leader because of his character flaws. Pickett will not learn how to be a leader from Joe.

The truth of the matter is Logan was a kid just a few short years ago and Karen McNair has been an upstanding citizen by all accounts. The only thing negative personally that can be made of either of them is going to be seen as political. Voters will probably choose McNair because Logan has a few more years before he will be seen as ready.

GOLD MINE! Every defense attorney knows that his bread and butter, are the inexperienced prosecutors.

That's where all of the lower graduates of the law schools get their feet wet, egos smashed, ears pinned back, and tails kicked. They learn the hard way, then go into criminal defense law, after they learned enough ways to get beat!

Why else do you think, that former Racehorse Haynes attorney, Jack B Zimmerman, makes such a fortune in the LC courts (not to mention, frequent trips)??? To him, fledgling attorneys are just fresh meat!!! (oh, hiya, Pickett- family name doesn't help much, does it)? LMAO

There is an old saying about life- You want and older attorney and a young doctor, not the other way around.

To the previous poster, I want to know more about ex liberty county tax collector/assessor selling tax abatements.

Do you think Mike Little and Logan Pickett were getting hush money from this scheme?

oh, but I forgot... you only do the LC courthouse, nothing else. Never mind! Maybe, just maybe, you need to reciprocate, with regards to his posts.... hmmmmm?
