As if President Obama doesn’t already have enough to do what with North Korea, Isis, gas prices, and ruining weddings, he’s taken time out of his busy schedule to attack some poor big-haired blonde gal in Texas who is running in a special election for state house.
How do I know this? Well, because she says so.
So what is President Obama, Saul Alinsky, (probably Nancy Pelosi, too) and his handmaiden Steve Mostyn doing to this poor woman?
They have found public records, damn ‘um. And they are actually using those public records. Oh, the horror. The Saul Alinsky horror of it all!
It seems that Ms. Berger has a rather checkered past.
1. She was ordered to pay a $12,000 fine to the state insurance board in lieu of suspending her license in 2003 for selling unauthorized products. I do not know if this involved Amway or adult toys but I do know the state insurance board was hacked off. She paid $100. A whole $100 of her $12,000 fine. In 2009, she surrendered her license and the department took no further action, being exceptionally glad to be rid of her. In all honesty, they probably would have paid her $100 to leave. And you’re fixin’ to see why.
2. In 2003, she was ordered to pay $17,500 to her ex-husband’s employer for repeatedly filing frivolous pleadings. It was delightfully upheld on appeal. Blonde, frivolous? Nooooooo…..
3. Her messy and sordid first divorce ended with the court ordering her in 2004 to pay $162,000 in sanctions for frivolous motions, abuse of the discovery process, repeatedly engaging in conduct intended to disrupt the proceedings, and abusing the rules of fair behavior. Y’all, it’s a habit! Yes! She’ll fit right in with the Republicans at the state capitol!
4. In 2012, suit was brought against her by Nine Plus Properties, Inc alleging that Berger in 2007 “looted, embezzled, and paid herself” funds belonging to Nine Plus and used Nine Plus funds to pay her personal creditors. She had received $20,000 for guaranteeing a loan for NP and a further fee of $65,000. (Since she told the Tx Dept of Insurance that she couldn’t pay the $12,000 fine, how did she guarantee the loan?) November, 2014 Becky agreed to pay $100,000 to settle these claims of financial wrongdoing. Mark McCaig (mentioned in her Oh Holy Crap I Can Whine! letter above) wrote about this on November 5.
5. Becky testified against science books at the state board of education, which led one observer to state she was clearly just doing it to help her bid for railroad commissioner.
6. She is becoming a perpetual candidate. She ran for Railroad Commissioner in 2012 (came in third with 12% of the vote) and 2014 (upped that to a whopping 16% this time) and now is running in the special election for state rep.
Special elections are a tricky thing. Mainly because nobody votes. If she gets her 16% to the polls, she could darn well win a special election.
Now I’m not saying that she’d be any different than any other damn Republican in the Texas House, but this woman seems to have diesel powered double barreled whining with a cactus on top. My ears would start bleeding before the session is over.
And the three dollars? Here’s the bottom of her whine-a-thon.
Hell, me and the insurance board will give her $100 just to pull out of the race!
So, if you know anyone in that district, please tell them to vote.
