EDITORIAL: THE TRUE AGENDA BETWEEN RENE RODRIGUEZ & OTHER RINOs OVERTAKING THE Republican Party IN NUECES COUNTY!
NUECES COUNTY, TX -- By way of background tort reform which was passed in 2003 affecting lawyers by decreasing not only the amount of medical malpractice lawsuits but created a cap on other lawsuits as written in the language of the Proposition. Regional lawyers like Rene Rodriguez were crippled in the amount of money they could make. The very atmosphere changed the way the jury looked at awarding verdicts in the 7 and 8 figure range. Tort reformers such Bay Area Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse saved corporations and insurance companies millions while decreasing the revenues lawyers made to fuel candidates primarily in the Democratic Party. That coupled with Rene Rodriguez’ scandal with Jaime Capelo whereby $100,000.00 exchanged hands and for the first time both Capelo and Rodriguez faced public scrutiny in reference to their orbital network of expediency. It further fueled the media spin to pass tort reform measures. Then Rodriguez leaped here and there until he crossed the confines of his political camp.
Attorney Tony Canales (whom Rodriguez had taunted and egged on during many an election) defended his reputation by further defending disgruntled clients who had been represented by Rodriguez in a major settlement. This led to further injury to his practice. Years went by and Rodriguez stayed within the Democratic Party and subsisted via giving lipservice to the expected motions.
He then followed Fil Vela's footsteps and decided to cross over to the Republican party. But first, he send his “girls” (Angela Hernandez and Amanda Torres and a few others) to serve as the friendly “doves” (as some critics have described them). He then came into the regional GOP as the “hawk” to promote his agenda to put in lawyers to replace justice of the peace candidates and further limit the working man's access to the courthouse doors… In fact, a candidate has been lined up againat JP Robert “Bobby” Gonzalez (from Robstown).
By cutting a deal with Amanda Torres, establishing a bizarre precedent of lawyers and the elite to replace nonlawyer justice of the peace candidates an agenda to limit a day in court had now been established. Rodriguez benefits by obtaining benefits for his school that Amanda refers troubled children to and Anna Jiminez, the other “Rene girl” promotes associates within the Republican controlled District Attorney’s office. Conspiracy? We think not.
