Well, one no bill on a charge, what about the thousand other charges against Judge Fowler. The newspaper focuses on the crumbs instead of the entire issue.

I still want to know how his now ex-brother-in-law got the county insurance program, while it was under Judge Fowler.

Not to mention, the special section in the commissioner meetings that allowed items to get passed before the commissioners approved them.

Where is that news story?

This list is too long for this topix section.

I bet you don't know about the special section in the commissioner meetings agendas that allowed items to get passed before the commissioners saw them or even approved them. Some of the commissioners have just found out about them. Why not ask the county commissioners? I'm sure they can give you an earfull. I believe it was called Section 9. Nevertheless, they will know to what you are referring. Some of the things that have passed without their approval had to do with property having oil/gas leases in West Texas the schools have. One company did an exploration, Fowler made them go through a bidding process, they were the only bidder and did not get the bid. Later a contract was awarded to another company out of the blue. Now lets think about why Fowler would have this special section and why the commissioners would not know about it. He's so honest huh? Also think about whom Fowler has had close relationships with in the past that deal with oil and gas issues. Well, the whole little downtown area and his working buddies are coming into play now aren't they? Those people have now distanced themselves from Fowler. This was was basically Fowler's way of passing through what he wanted for whatever reasons he wanted. This is just one of the many items that slipped through the meetings. Paint on the wall? How about mud on Fowlers face? He's caught red handed with his hand in the cookie jar. I've heard it has all gone to the prosecutor to investigate.

I hope the PROSECUTOR will PROSECUTE and not only INVESTIGATE. All these people are in it together, the people in the county should know that and get their heads out of there rear ends. If the Commissioners didn't know anything why didn't they come public and say something? Hell they knew what was going on. No never mine they are stupid too, and in the CLICK.
When you think about it why don't any of these elected officials get on these sites and defend their ruling? The reason is THEY CANN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH NOR TELL THE TRUTH.

I've heard he has ALOT MORE CHARGES coming his way. It sounds like this boy is going to be answering for his actions, as judge, for the rest of his life. It's great to finally see some JUSTICE happen in Gilmer with the so called elite. I call them white collar criminals.

Damon: Justice hasn't happen yet, the FAT LADY HASN'T SUNG YET. And yes he has destroyed his future and some family members as well. He and others in the court system have destroyed many in the county with their ruling and not saying anything when they knew the ruling was wrong. It is great to see all this corruption is out in the open. This shows us all what TAPING YOU MOUTH SHUT CAN DO. But it worked.

It's doubtful you will see justice when it comes to the corrupt system Willie.
