Jefferson County's Laughing Stock

Philip R. Klein's first articles of the week on the Southeast Texas Political Review deserve little comment: while long on PRK's opinions, the postings lack rational thought.

In his latest posting this afternoon, Klein offered this advice to the media:
Something has to change folks. Something has to change. When you have bloggers get the story before the mainstream? Remember the days of old when guys like Aggie (before his demise and self-resurrection three times) would break hard news stories? Not to mention this site who broke two larges stories last week that nobody has said a word about? Jefferson County hires a special counsel DA to prosecute two police officers that lied and it does not even get a mention? WOW!
I'm reserving comment on those "two larges [sic] stories" that Klein broke last week, at least until a media source more credible than the Southeast Texas Political Review reports the real facts. Preferably one who can string together enough words to form a coherent sentence. "WOW!"

Here are a few examples of other "larges [sic] stories" that PRK broke in the past:
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned that Hearst will make "whatever announcement they will make" no later than April 14, 2009. Our sources is a high level source with Hearst. At stake is whether or not the Enterprise will continue to be printed.
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned this morning that Continental Airlines Express will be leaving Southeast Texas due to fuel costs and that Southeast Texas is not a profitable route. 
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned late Friday afternoon that this past Friday the Attorney General of Texas was consulted by a lawyer in request for an preliminary opinion regarding a conviction of his client by the Hardin County Courts. "[David Sheffield] screwed up big time. He has attempted to cover up his mistake by going back and refilling over 800 cases in an attempt to correct the problem. We know of 27,000 cases that may be overturned," said a source that demanded there name not be used.
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned that Tom Maness will have a candidate. Get this - Layne Walker - who is dead on as Mr. Law and Order and would wipe up Maness.
The Review has learned that a very popular female elected official from North County has begun to talk about maybe running for Jefferson County Judge.
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned of a possible overthrow attempt by a radical faction of the Jefferson County Democratic party to oust Chairman Gilbert T. Adams.
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned from sources inside the Texas Workforce Commission that the unemployment rate in Port Arthur Texas is well near the 25% mark - which is an unheard of rate for any county or city in the State of Texas.
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned that the idea of forming a "Hospital District" was floated. Well, it seems that not only is it floated - it is full steam ahead with State Representative Joe Deshotel considering running a bill.  Our take? Joe will run it. It will pass. You will vote. And we will pay. And the democrats have done it again in Southeast Texas.
Find a more comprehensive list here.

Philip R. Klein's racism is showing in his posting yesterday: 
Sources inside BISD tell the Review that there are a group of teachers inside BISD that have formed in silence to begin to challenge BISD Superintendent Carroll Thomas and his "cab nit" (spelled like NITWIT) and they are documenting internal issues and how they are handled. 
Apparently Klein felt he needed to explain his clever (said with tongue firmly in cheek) reference to "cab'nit." I particularly liked this quote:
We have said it in a speech last week - and will say it again - "HISTORY WILL SHOW THAT THIS PERIOD IN JEFFERSON COUNTY'S HISTORY WILL BE SEEN AS ONE OF THE MOST CORRUPTION TIMES - WITH THE MOST CORRUPT ELECTED OFFICIALS - IN A COUNTY THAT IS DYING AS FAST AS ANY IN TEXAS."

And we mean it. Jefferson County Texas is the laughing stock of Texas.
This period in Jefferson County's history "will be seen as one the most corruption times?"  What gibberish. By the time Philip got to this point in his long-winded speech to the Port Arthur Rotary Club, most people in attendance were snoring loudly.

If Jefferson County is truly the "laughing stock of Texas," it's only because we have the biggest village idiot in the state.

If you want a good laugh, see if you can get Brenda, his first wife to tell you some stories. The man is truly amazing.

Silly Philly needs to change his editorial because Labor day was over a month ago. Nobody is paying attention to him.

Is that the one he's still in love with?

Philip is only in love with himself. Everyone else is collateral damage.

Philip has told several close friends that he really missed his second wife.
