Perry Sanchez: the corrupt Siamese twins
1) a) Perry is the veto King of Texas for which he was immediately paid the day after the vetoes, b) he has taken money from Ken Lay of Enron and was paid the day after he made appointed an ex-Enron employee to the PUC, c) he went to Washington last month to get some money from another Bush "Pioneer" and money launderer Wayne Berman, d) he went to Palestine, Texas to bring God back to the schools but reverses himself and abandons God because the corrupt businessmen in Texas pay more.
2) a) Sanchez lied on his UT regents app about Tesoro, b) $25 million of Mafia money was laundered through Tesoro while he allegedly slept, c) he bankrupted Tesoro with fraudulent loans costing the taxpayers $161 million, d) he bought out of the Tesoro problem with $1 million, e) he has refused to provide his schedules to his personal tax returns or provide his billion dollar trust tax return both of which will show how much Enron stock he sold while others lost their pensions, f) he has still refused to show the Cuellar "death threat" letter, g) he called Cuellar a homosexual, h) he is a Viet Nam era draft dodger, i) he has used illegal drugs, j) he has hired illegal aliens, k) his buddy Tony Canales defends Mafia drug lords, was corporate counsel to Tesoro, was part of the Cuellar matter, AND IN REGARDS TO DEMOCRATS l) he is a Republican turncoat Bush "Pioneer" m) he has refused to campaign in 2001 to any real degree, n) Hispanics are abondoning him as was shown in the last Scripps Howard poll in December o) he is sucking up the party money when he promised to be self-financing. p) after 15 months of being the Democratic Party's boy, has never been able to get above 23% against Perry in the five polls this year and now sits at 18% per the SH December poll: WHICH IS ABOUT HALF OF WHAT MAURO DID AGAINST BUSH IN 1998.
3) The December Scripps Howard poll showed that both Sanchez and Perry had dropped 5% each since September allegedly to undecided voters but we all know those voters went to WorldPeace.
The reality is that the Siamese twins Perry Sanchez are both corrupt but without a doubt Sanchez is three to one more corrupt. Both are afraid to acknowledge God. Both are dropping in the polls. How can both candidates drop in the polls? Does it mean that the voters see no difference?
The only negative baggage that has been associated with gubernatorial candidate WorldPeace is that he has no money and his name is WorldPeace.
WorldPeace represents: No corruption. No selling out for money. No whoring after money. A refusal to say Sanchez is not corrupt. A refusal to get in line with the Democratic Party when it is hell bent on making a piece of garbage its gubernatorial candidate. A refusal to say Black is White. A refusal to spent $25 million to become governor. A determination to return God to the schools. A concrete plan to significantly improve education in Texas. A concrete plan to make the courts just. A commitment to allocate half his appointments to women and to bring equality and justice to Blacks, Hispanics, Women and Native Americans.
There is only one real candidate for Governor of Texas: WorldPeace. Putting Sanchez up for governor will officially end the Democratic Party in Texas because as has become obvious the Republicans are just waiting to trash him worse that WorldPeace has ever thought about doing. Sanchez's corruption will finish off John Sharp who was severely beaten by Perry in 1998 when he turned a post primary 14 point lead over Perry into a 3 point loss in the general election. Sanchez will take votes away from Ken Bentsen who is going to have to fight John Cornyn in what will be one of the closest statewide elections next November. Kirk Watson will probably beat Abbot but he will definitely lose votes if Sanchez is running for governor.
All this reverses if WorldPeace heads the Democratic Party. There is no real comparison between Sanchez and WorldPeace. Sanchez represents the death of the Democratic Party and WorldPeace represents new birth. Perry Sanchez represent continued political decadence and more S & L Enron corruption. WorldPeace represents a new day in politics and hope for the future. Never in Texas politics have the choices between the candidates been so clear: WorldPeace or Perry Sanchez.

Perry defends appointment of ex-Enron official

AUSTIN -- Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday defended his appointment of a former Enron Corp. executive to chair the Texas Public Utility Commission, rejecting a political opponent's allegation that Max Yzaguirre was ineligible for the post.
He also denied Democratic suggestions that Yzaguirre's appointment was a payoff for a large political donation from Ken Lay, Enron's chief executive.
"I'm comfortable that Max Yzaguirre was and is qualified by the laws of this state to be on the Public Utility Commission," Perry said.
Perry said Yzaguirre had an "extraordinary background" for dealing with electric deregulation and other PUC issues.
Yzaguirre said his appointment "satisfies Texas law 100 percent."
Earlier this week, Glenn Smith, campaign manager for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Sanchez, accused Yzaguirre of misleading the public about his ties to Enron, the Houston-based energy giant whose devastating bankruptcy threatens to batter the Texas economy and, perhaps, its political landscape.
Smith said that Yzaguirre was ineligible to serve on the PUC because he is a former officer in Enron North America, an Enron subsidiary that owns part of New Power Co., which markets electricity in Texas.
State law prohibits anyone from serving on the PUC if he or she was employed by a public utility, an affiliate or a direct competitor during the preceding two years.
Perry spokesman Ray Sullivan said that neither Enron nor New Power is an electric utility under state law. The law doesn't define power marketers or retail electric providers as utilities.
"Attorneys at the PUC and the governor's office carefully reviewed and vetted Mr. Yzaguirre's background and qualifications and determined he was and continues to be perfectly qualified to serve as chairman of the PUC," Sullivan said.
"He was not employed by a public utility, an affiliate or a direct competitor as defined by Texas law in the two years prior to his appointment."
The governor said it was coincidental that his June 13 appointment of Yzaguirre was made only one day before he received a $25,000 political contribution from Lay.
"Ken Lay had been contributing to me and to a number of other people for substantial periods of time before that," he said.
Perry said he didn't discuss Yzaguirre's appointment with Lay.
Yzaguirre was president of Enron de Mexico until shortly before his appointment to the PUC and was an officer in several other Enron-related companies.
Yzaguirre initially did not list his affiliation with Enron North America and several other subsidiaries on the financial disclosure statement that state officers have to file with the Texas Ethics Commission.
He amended the statement last month to correct the omissions. He said he did not list the other companies, including Enron North America, because he believed they were inactive.
But Democrats said Enron North America was actively operating in Texas.
"It appears Perry's appointee may not be eligible to serve, and he misled the public about his eligibility," Smith said.
Texas Democratic Party Chairwoman Molly Beth Malcolm also chimed in on Wednesday, challenging Perry to "come clean" about his support from Enron and his PUC appointment.
"The appearance that the governor has rewarded an Enron executive with the powerful Public Utility Commission chairmanship in exchange for political contributions is unsettling," Malcolm said.
"It is particularly offensive to the many Texas families who have lost their life savings through no fault of their own in the Enron demise."
The Democratic criticism of Perry's appointment follows recent unfavorable publicity about Sanchez's business dealings.
Republicans have accused Sanchez of misleading people in his 1996 application for an appointment to the University of Texas Board of Regents, which he received from former Gov. George W. Bush.
Sanchez answered "no" to two questions about whether he had ever been involved in a business that had been investigated. The answers were given two years after he had paid a $1 million settlement to end a federal investigation of a failed savings and loan that he owned.
Sanchez has denied any wrongdoing.
