"Democrat" takes donations from Bob Perry
Would you vote for a "Democrat" who has accepted contributions from Bob Perry, frontman for the swiftboat ads?

Said "Democrat" also voted in the Republican primary. This information is available to the public at the Harris County Clerk's office.

No doubt that one of his opponents - there are several - is a Democrat though. He is a precinct chair, past senate district chair and can always be counted upon to give a donation for Democratic Party events.

If you live in District C or even close to District C, please consider donating some of your time to a real Democrat's campaign.

6. Correct links
Thanks, Justitia,

Can't tell what I did now because it's too late for me to edit but here it it again. I think I added http:/ / when I should not have done so (big sigh) so many formating rules, so little time ;-)

2. Who is this so called Democrat?
Someone call him up and tell him to send it back!

NO Democrat should take money from this man, except Allan Ritter who is a DINO.

3. Correct URL
http://www.houstontx.gov/council/reports/2005/litt-july...

The Democrat is Herman Litt.

Really why would Bob Perry give Litt $5K. Perry never gives money unless he expects a return.

5. If he voted in the wrong primary
He is not eligible to run in the Democratic Primary. See the rules: http://www.txdemocrats.org/files/Rules2004.pdf

7. Houston municipal elections are non-partisan
therefore, the candidate can call himself whatever he likes.

8. I'm still looking for the exact reference I need,
But here is something interesting from page 10

Democrats 18 years of age or older are eligible for the offices of Precinct Chair or County Chair provided they meet the following criteria:
(a) they are qualified voters. . .and they vote in the Democratic Primary. . .

11. Party rules do not matter in this race
Edited on Thu Oct-27-05 12:17 PM by Smarty Pants Liberal
CD,

Thanks for your efforts but Party rules are void in the Houston City Council race because the race is nonpartisan. One does not appear on the ballot as a Democrat, Republican, Green or even Royal Order of the Bedrock Poobahs.

This is why a Texas DNC member was able to endorse and support a known Republican in the last municipal election without suffering any repercusions from the Democratic Party.

I know the rule. If you are appointed to a Party office in an even year then you must have voted in the last Democratic primary but if you are appointed to a Party office in an odd year, there is no rule. This means that a person who voted in the last Republican primary or even just a known Republican could be appointed to or run for any Party office and win in 2005.

The candidate would not stand a chance if he called himself a Republican and is pimping the gullible Democrats to support him by periodically attending and speaking at local Democratic club meetings and schmoozing with the right DINOs for their support.

13. But think of the PR coup
If he is outed and has to resign as precinct chair! A little good press coverage, and this guy could be toast!

14. o.k. I should have said names
Thanks to merci_me's lead.

Just wanted to get ya'll to see the evidence by being a little evasive and providing links. Sorry for the confusion.

Litt, the candidate posing as a Democrat is the one who took donations.

His opponent Lee, DEFINTELY a Democrat. No doubt in anyone's mind around these parts. Lee is the precinct chair and former senate district chair.

Please volunteer for Lee if you live in or near District C in Houston.

9. Not unlike how I feel about Al Green, ( whose NAME I 'll say)
who sat in a very safe Justice of the Peace position for 25 years, until Tom Delay redistricted a nice safe seat for him. So, he jumped into the Democratic primary and opposed Chris Bell and got himself a nice stash of cash from Delay & Company. Just doing the bidding of the Repukes.

Of course, once he won, he moved out of Shelia Jackson Lee's district, into an apartment. Couldn't challenge Ms Jackson Lee in a fair and square primary battle.

Hopefully, he is be a one-term traitor!!
