Lawsuits Filed

Philip R. Klein wrote yesterday in his article, "Scandal Grows:"

"The Review has learned that two law firms have been contacted by both the accused and the accuser and that a Lawsuit [sic] may be filed in the next week concerned the almost $10,000 that is being held in lue [sic] of payment to the former Court Reporter. "

Further, two tipsters this morning tell the Review that : "This is not the first affair for any of the three in question."

In today's article, "Lawsuits Filed," Philip Klein writes:

The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned that two lawsuits have been filed against Loma George, administrative assistant to Jefferson County Judge Ronald Walker and budding candidate for County Clerk. The two suits were filed over the last 90 days and one is in the summery [sic] judgment process.

So is Philip suggesting that Loma George had an affair with a sitting judge?  And, since we're almost into the winter season, would that be a "wintry judgment process?" Or, did Philip mean "summary judgment?" 

Philip comments:

Loma George has been highly touted as being a candidate against Carolyn Guidry for Jefferson County Clerk. Guidry is an enemy of the gang of Seven [sic] and Team Walker. She has stood up to the powerbase [sic] and taken her licks in commissioners [sic] court.

And this further sends the Walker clan into a tail spin politically. They had high hopes of getting Guidry out of office and putting one of their own in place.

And all of this is according to whom? Philip's personal opinion?

Philip doesn't even have a manufactured "source who demands anonymity" to back up this bizarre and unsubstantiated claim that Loma had intentions of running for public office, but perhaps he could offer some advice to Loma on bankruptcy.

Philip has also written himself some new reader mail - this was quite funny:

I am a lawyer from Harris County and I was told to read your site. Congratulations on have the **** to bring the truth to the people of your God forsaken community.

Does anyone believe that an attorney in Harris County would make the same grammatical errors as Philip? Or, how about this:

"You gutless *******. Name names ........ "

Gutless is an interesting word - who uses that fairly frequently? 

I'm reminded of a point that PG at the de novo blog made while discussing Tom Gillam's case against Philip R. Klein:

No matter how good a point the writer is making, if I am an educated person who judges others based on their literacy (as most people do -- hence the social bias against Ebonics and other non-standard forms of English), then I am not going to bother reading this article because I will quickly dismiss the author as too careless to be likely to have informed, well-thought-out ideas.

I think PG described Philip quite well.
