Allen Fletcher

Rick Casey gives a short summary of this Texas Monthly feature article about State Rep. Allen Fletcher and his, um, colorful business partners, who are under investigation by the feds for running various kinds of ripoffs. There's no indication that Fletcher himself did anything untoward, but reading the article one can't help the impression that he was a king-sized fool to have anything to do with these people. One wonders if this will be the basis of a campaign against him next year. It would have to be a primary challenge, as HD130 is the reddest district in Harris County, but I daresay there would be no shortage of material. Read the story and see for yourself.

Dan Patrick hired child molester Jon Matthews, backed John Devine over Patricia Harless, backed Aubrey Thoede over Bill Callegari, and backed this Fletcher guy. If I read the Texas Monthly article correctly, Fletcher is awash in debt and, uh, probably has a problem or two with IRS tax returns he's submitted. And this is the least of his problems. Bye bye.
