Ex-congressman Stockman is labeled a co-conspirator in prescription fraud
By Tim Fleck
At first glance, 39-year-old cosmetics specialist Melony Ann Robbins's appearance last month before federal magistrate Nancy Johnson seemed an insignificant skirmish in the government's war on drugs. Robbins, a former assistant at a Bellaire skin care clinic, pleaded not guilty to ten counts of exploiting her position to write false prescriptions for controlled substances using the clinic director's name and drug registration number without the physician's knowledge. But when Johnson set Robbins's bond at $25,000, a familiar Houston political figure attempted to sign for it.
Steven Miles Stockman, the 41-year-old hyperconservative former GOP congressman from Friendswood, had accompanied Robbins and her attorney to court. Her lawyer was also a well-known Republican -- Harris County GOP party chairman Gary Polland, a close ally of Stockman's during his one term in office from 1994 to 1996.
Before Stockman could spring Robbins, U.S. Assistant Attorney Samuel Lewis lodged an objection. Stockman could not pay the bail, Lewis told the magistrate, because he was an unindicted co-conspirator in the case. After a hasty conference, Robbins's sister Dawn Johnson signed for the bond.
"I wouldn't make it unless there was merit to it," Lewis explained later when asked about his on-the-record court comment that Stockman was a co-conspirator. "It's in the investigation stage, so I cannot go any further than that."

I agree. Stockman is a dick.

He should not be allowed to have a fishing license.

But that unindigted coconspirator claim is bullshit.

You are absolutely right...absolutely far right. Stockman is a pig. NRA endorsed pig. He does not represent me, will not represent me.

He is a pandering pig, like Romney/Ryan and Gov Perry.

END THE MADNESS...VOTE DEMOCRAT.

Thanks to Stockman, I can't vote a straight Republican ticket. That dude ran one wacko campaign to get where he is.

But I don't know that.
