5. Last year he placed a statewide call for conservative Christian candidates

to run for state representative in the 2018 primary. Now his firm is accused of taking more than $300k from a client's trust account. Sounds about right. I swear, there is something seriously wrong with many republicans.

24. That link the other poster posted shows Cruz winning Harris Co.

It says it was updated 11/12. It was close, though.

13. Help us out just a little, as I can't get past the accusations against Pressler

Pressler: Baptist minister and youth leader with an eye for young men. But for me, the page keeps fratzing.

15. from the article:

Brooks Schott states in the documents that he met Pressler in 2016, after Schott was hired as a lawyer at the firm Pressler co-founded with Woodfill.

Schott says he was invited to lunch by Pressler in December 2016. He arrived at Pressler’s home, he says, where he was greeted by Pressler, who was not wearing pants. After dressing, Pressler gave Schott a tour of his office and mentioned a 10-person hot tub at his ranch.

“Pressler then told me that ‘when the ladies are not around, us boys all go in the hot tub completely naked,’ ” Schott’s affidavit states. “He then invited me to go hot tubbing with him at his ranch. This invitation was clearly made in anticipation that I would engage in sexual activity.”

Upon returning to the firm, Schott said an office manager told him that Pressler had previously solicited young men at the firm. Schott then complained to Woodfill, according to emails that were filed with his affidavit.

“If (the office manager) knew of Pressler’s past inappropriate sexual behavior, I find it hard to believe that you did not know about it,” he wrote in a Dec. 9, 2016 email to Woodfill, court records show.

Woodfill responded that Pressler was no longer his law partner and that “this 85-year-old man has never made any inappropriate comments or actions toward me or any one I know of,” court records show. In a subsequent email, Woodfill said that the conduct Schott described “is unacceptable” and said he would address it with Pressler.

In an email on Thursday, Woodfill responded to Schott’s assertion, writing that “the person described in Mr. Schott’s affidavit doesn’t match up with the Judge Pressler I know” and that Pressler “has not been associated with my law firm for over a decade.”

16. Pressler and Paige Patterson were the leaders of the RW takeover of the SoBapt convention.

Remember Patterson? He got in trouble by counseling wives to stay with abusive husbands. And by not reporting accusations of rape to police while he was head of a SBC seminary.

Patterson has been accused of covering up fori Pressler.

Apparently it was widely known in Houston that Pressler habitually molested young men.

The SBC's Southwestern Seminary (where Paige recently was fired) installed stained glass windows in the chapel with portraits of Paige, Pressler, their wives, and other leaders of the takeover. Some wonder if there will be a ritualistic breaking of the windows! (snark)

28. The blog thewartburgwatch.com has posted a great deal about these 2

The blog is run by 2 NC women, one who is still a SoBapt and one who has left the denomination.

Mwny of those commenting are former members, nones, or on verge of leaving.

The blog provides info on what's going on in Evangelical/Fundamentalist circles and how those in or close to those circles are reacting.

Blogs of former Evangelicals are lovejoyfeminism (now atheist, raised in Quiverful family)at patheos, the blog of Bruce Gerencser (former pastor of the Independent Baptist Federation that runs Bob Jones University, now atheist), the blog of Chrisshoop (former Evangelical now atheist), and the blog slacktivist at patheos (run by Fred Clark, former Evangelical/Baptist now progressive Christian--he writes a lof about the origin of Evangelicalism as a religious cover for white supremacy).

The @HarrisCountyDAO says it is carrying out a search warrant at this high-rise office building off Woodway. The office the warrant is for, what they're investigating, or what documents investigators are collecting, well the DA isn't ready to talk about that.
