Any Comments, Philip?

I'm fact-checking Philip R. Klein's posting of Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010, however there is so much misinformation concerning the reduction in workforce (RIF) of nine Jefferson County deputy constables that this process may take a couple of days.  For example, consider this grammatical trainwreck:
Adding insult to injury - Patrick Swain - the so called chief money criminal of Jefferson County who is not only on team Walker but seemingly the district judges have NO CONTROL over as he has employees not even show up to the office to work and they work from home (so they say) while drawing down huge salaries and benefits (like car allowances when they don't drive to work - we guess the cell phone allowances come in handy), seemingly said this :    LISTEN

Oh...wait a minute there Paddy boy? Did you just say that county budgets are already padded? Have you been lying to the public all these years? Do what the ****? Now you say it in public.
In the meantime, here's an interesting nitwit tidbit. Special thanks to the reader who provided the tip.

KBTV Fox 4 has interviewed Rhonda Dugas twice in the past several weeks. While no other media has mentioned Rhonda, Channel 4 quoted her on July 22, 2010:
Community activist Rhonda Dugas says, "They just put 9 good people out of work, they have morages and car payments and children to feed and homes to take care of. And I want to see you reduce Ford Park by 10- 15-20 employess dont reduce our law enforcement take it, take it out of Ford Park, not law enforcement. Those constables do an incredible job and they keep us safe and we need that."
Apparently, Philip also edits Channel 4's copy, too. You can see the video here.

KBTV Fox 4 later did a full story concerning Rhonda's petition drive on Aug. 14, 2010:
Rhonda Dugas is heading up a petition drive, and hopes to have plenty of signatures before commissioners vote on the budget.

She says, "These deputy constables work very hard for us, and we are so appreciative of them and we need to show them that we need to stand behind them, and present to commissioners court a petition that says we want these jobs saved, and we have the money in the bank to save them."
See that video here.

While both are on the same side of this issue, Rhonda is doing something. Philip is feeding his own ego and pushing his own personal agenda with spurious and fictitious allegations of felony investigations concerning Commissioner Eddie Arnold.  

If politics truly do make for strange bedfellows, I thought Rhonda Dugas had better taste than that.

Never thought I'd live to see Phil and Rhonda joined at the hips.

If Klein is backing the constables...they're doomed. They'll be lucky to even have constable positions in Texas. Is it just me but does it seem like Klein can't win at anything?

Assuming off the page equals off the wall, check the definition: improbable, nonsensical, exhibiting bizarre behavior. That's our boy, alright!

All of Jefferson County's financial woes can be attributed to Ford Park and the inept Carl Griffith. Carl Griffith will go down as the worst county judge ever elected in this county.

schleicher pllc mutual of council relationship of resolvelaw.com

According to Phil, Griffith had nothing to do with Ford Park...it was all Mark Domingue's fault.
