BOB JONES 1440 KEYS THIS MORNING! RUNNERS REVEALED
This morning much to the dismay of the political and legal machines and powers that be I appeared on Bob Jones' show on 1440 KEYS on AM radio from 7 to 8 a.m. Here are the highlights:
El Defenzor revealed the legal scheme to fund not only lawyers but also politicians and keep the Democratic party afloat:
Simply put I discussed the role of "runners" or people who go and pickup cases and take them to a lawyer (generallya referring attorney) who then cleans the cases by referring them to another attorney who is generally a trial attorney. The split here in South Texas according to my sources is generally 50/50.
I discussed the Huerta mystique and the enigma that he was. Preacher, father, businessman and lawyer who kept his runners under his thumb, kept the Catholic church enthralled as well as the public with the religious movement. I discussed his children and staff taking down and dismantling his television presence and ministry in less than 48 hours at Mr. Lopez' station.
I also discussed the lawsuits that the Huerta firm have had from Mr. Rene Rodriguez on Joseph Huerta and the Gonzalez firm from the valley suing Huerta Law Firm for soliciting. Additionally the role of Bill Edwards was discussed and his interviews on KZTV Action 10 news with broadcast journalist Andy Lescano on July 23, 2009 regarding runners as well as the controversial youtube video (search term William Edwards).
I will continue my investigation. As part of a possible book and documentary I will be investigating the phenomenon of runners in South Texas and the structure in place. i.e., runners get cases, lawyers make the money, lawyers then contribute to certain candidates and fund the Democratic party. Now with the Celis issue, the Republicans are storming the castle to weaken the Dem party by weakening their main source of contributions: lawyers.
One disclaimer: I am not saying that all lawyers engage in getting cases through the use of runners. Most lawyers I know adhere to the mandate that cases cannot be solicited in any manner.
Lastly, I talked about judicial races and in my opinion how Juan "RFK" Reyna and Tina Trevino will be formidable opponents in judicial races for the Republicans and that Angelica Hernandez has officially resigned 7 days ago from the D.A.'s office and will be setting her sights on the Democratic primary against Manuel Banales. Banales may have made a fatal error by sticking his neck out too far for Celis and making the hypocritical and ridiculous statement that he thinks the jail's are overcrowded.
More to come.
