Too funny, Mr. No One Can Touch Me, I'm the County Judge is still in the newspapers with more poop accumulating on his face. Fowler you are the laughing stock of Upshur County and have made Upshur County the laughing stock of East Texas. You had better get your father in law to send you to school again because clearly you are not good enough to hold a job that requires a high school education and your law degree clearly came out of a box of cracker jacks, because only you could be so stupid as to get yourself in this much trouble. If you were a man you would plead guilty and get this over with instead of trying to run in every direction except that of the court room. My my what people will do when they are on the other side of the bench.

Another thing to investigate on Fowler:

How did Fowler's, brother in law, at the time, managed to get the county health insurance plans business? Should Fowler not have excused himself from the bid process since he was related to this person at the time? Is this not another unethical violation of the public trust and a clear conflict of interest? The brother in law bragged to everyone that came in his insurance office as to how he had Fowler in his back pocket and had paid him off. I think a little investigating needs to be done here by the prosecutor.

The list just keeps getting longer.

I've often wondered why Upshur County elected this guy for anything. The other day I found out whom his father in law is. No wonder. He never would have been elected otherwise on his own name and reputation as there is none for him. No wonder he is trying so hard to hold onto this job. If he is kicked out he has no where to go. As an attorney he would have little business. Especially after this mess. What a joke.

Mack: To answer your question on WHY UPSHUR COUNTY ELECTED THIS GUY? There are two words CLAN OR KLAN, you must go alone with it or fear it. In many cases they belong to one the other or both, you will get elected. Now if you fear them they will elect you, because they know nothing will change for the better.
When you look at the elected officials of the county, WHO WOULD YOU SAY IS WORTH A DAMN?

Wounded: You got it Boss, HATE & FEAR. The worse part is they get paid for this, some of these people think this is right.
So they are growing cotton down town Linden now, well who will they get to chop it? This is like the Confederate flag ordeal in Anderson county awhile back. All of this is just showing the true justice in N.E. Texas you are to expect when you go to court. This Johnson family you spoke of I pretty sure I know them as we talked before. Yes they fear and they were taught too, that is what MORON elected offiials feed on in the area. To be honest when it comes to true justice & true christanity in the area you need to CLOSE EVERY DAMN DOOR son both.

This guy's father-in-law is Joe Poole that use to have the State Farm Insurance business in town. Fowler was elected because of Joe, not any other reason. Folwer has never had any motivation to work. He has looked for the easiest way out all of his life. I think this little ordeal has undone any political aspirations he may have ever had and there is still more to come.

Agent Get Smart: Years ago I GOT SMRART. You mention Joe Poole, now what CLAN OR KLAN does he belong too? Oh yea there is a 3rd word CLICK, we all know he is in the CLICK. I have watched this unfold for years and glad to see it. You confurmed what I stated about the CLAN OR KLAN,(Joe Poole said vote for Fowler on the white side, the blacks said Master Joe's son-in-law is running). I know the PROGRAM in Gilmer. Now tell me who is WORTH A DAMN who is elected in the county?.
As Wounded said they don't want to work. Once you narrow it down it will still go back to the CHURCH'S of the county. They will put you in office and they will take you out.
