Liberty Dispatch broke the Liberty County and Chambers County FEMA fraud fiasco, now...
Smile, you are on candid camera! After years of unresolved scandals and rumors of scandals in the Liberty County Courthouse, it sounds like this one has pictures that are forthcoming and these pictures are worth more than a thousand words.
What should have been just a routine, run of the mill political contribution by friends in the law firm Rio, Morgan, and Quinn could result in some very serious charges being brought against whomever stole a letter out of the courthouse mail. Whomever did it is on film after they made copies of the enclosed check and tried to use the mail to try and deceive the public into thinking Chap Cain had received a contribution beyond the legal limits of a judicial campaign. This dastardly deed occurred before the Republican primary election day while Cain’s race for re-election had not been settled. This failed attempt to stain the Judge’s reputation happened after he left the Democratic Party and ran for the first time as a Republican.
Liberty Dispatch has heard from numerous people how badly County Judge Phil Fitzgerald, District Judge Rusty Hight, and County Court - at – Law Judicial Democratic nominee Zack Zbranek wanted to defeat 253rd District Court Judge Chap Cain. To what degree who knows, but they had someone champion their cause in the Republican primary but Cain squashed attorney Michelle Meredino when Republicans voted for him by a margin of two to one.
We are not sure how many people were involved in the plot, but the thief or thieves made copies of a check from the law firm when they looked at one part of the check that indicated it was $500 over the legal limit. Information LD has is that the copies were made at a Fedex or related store in Beaumont, but wherever the copies or the faxes were from, Liberty Dispatch has heard from a reliable source that the Feds will announce in the next 48 hours who the perpetrator’s image is that was found on the store camera. At that time we expect the Feds to make an arrest and reveal whatever charges that will be filed against the suspect.
As we previously reported before, the plot failed on two fronts. First, Judge Cain noticed the check had two different amounts and he never cashed the check. He called his friends and they corrected their mistake. The criminal or criminals were not so smart. They just assumed the check would be deposited and Judge Cain would have to explain how come he had accepted the amount. Second Judge Cain noticed the mail had been opened and reported it to authorities.
Phil Fitzgerald, where are you?
Liberty Dispatch wants to give another warm welcome to Judge Cain. Welcome to our world and the Republican Party Judge! And congratulations for defending the first big Democratic attack of this campaign season!
