Texas Traffic Cam Bribery Allegations Surface

Don’t ever forget: It’s always about the money. From theNewspaper:

“An ethical storm […] broke around state Representative Linda Harper-Brown (R-Irving) last month… Harper-Brown, a Transportation Committee member, accepted unreported gratuities from a traffic camera firm in return for playing the decisive role in establishing the automated ticketing industry in the Lone Star State.”

A group has now formally filed corruption charges against the state rep:

[The group] filed corruption charges with the Travis County District Attorney’s Office and the US Attorney for the Northern District of Texas after it learned that Harper-Brown had been driving luxury vehicles paid for by a firm that tried to land lucrative traffic camera contracts. Harper-Brown drives a black 2010 Mercedes E550 sedan with official state license plates, a fact confirmed on video by WFAA-TV in Dallas. Paradigm Traffic Systems and Durable Specialties, firms owned by Jeffrey C. Bryan, provided another E-Class and a 2004 Chevy Tahoe to Harper-Brown and her husband William Brown.”

    Dear Law A. Bidingcitizen…..Name one life that has been saved?

    • Law A. Bidingcitizen says:

      i cant answer that question….you know that… and that is why you asked it… would you not agree that if we all stopped driving automobiles and used either walking or riding a bike as a means of transportation that many lives would be saved due to no accidents from driving cars? is that fair to assume? of course it is…only a moron or fool would disagree ( you qualify in both categories ) anyway…so is it not also safe to assume that if red light cameras are installed at an intersection drawing peoples attention to stopping at yellow and red lights instead of running them that this would in fact save lives? again….only a moron or fool would disagree!!! but you are entitled to your opinion…as short sighted as it may be

      • 4409 says:

        LMAO…again, prove they save lives. If you can’t prove something then why are you stating it?I can prove they lowered yellow light times AND increased accidents but you on the other have NOTHING

          Don’t feed the troll.

          Even he knows down deep inside that I just owned him so much that he had to resort to nothing but insults…

          It’s a 100% waste of time with him. He’s like a 7 year old that will copy everything you say just to annoy you.

          Think about this guy… He’s a self-proclaimed athiest… Per his own belief system, he has only one existence to live and then it’s all over forever. What does he do with his one moment in the universe before nothingness? He’s wasting his time trolling here with people he himself has labeled as “losers” – kicking people when they’re perceived to be down.

          Just how low on the food chain do you have to be to not see what a waste of time his current “life efforts” are?

          Do you really want to waste a lot of time feeding such a pathetic creature?

          Remember – Don’t let the failure of the signature gathering let this sad, sad poster get under your skin.

          Don’t feed the troll.

          We have more important things to do…

          • Law A. Bidingcitizen says:

            B. I know you were voted best looking guy at band camp….but what you should have won was the award for most written words that mean nothing. even 4409 gave your rant no attention after you tried to buddy up to him. go fetch the band camp group photo and recall the glory years…. in the real world you are just dog shit waiting to be stepped on

        • Law A. Bidingcitizen says:

          really ? who lowered them? of course you have it documented ..right…like a video…. i know you like your videos… or is it just an accusation reported by someone with a stop watch?

          so band captain…. we will need to see proof…names and video…. otherwise STF up!! maybe you need to go back to your site where you are worshiped…here you are nothing more than the next dog shit to be stepped on!!!

          • Law A. Bidingcitizen says:

            BTW B.dont try and buddy up to close to him….unless you enjoy the knife in the back… on the next thread you can read where he threw lone wolf under the bus for asking him a question and challening him for an answer ( and i thought they were on the same team)…. i guess wolf wasnt in the cool guys cabin at camp….

            • LoneWolf says:

              Trust me, I’m biting my tongue real hard on this one. I’ll probably end up being the next one banned from here if ever I let loose.

              • Law A. Bidingcitizen says:

                he slammed you wolf…. you didnt do anything to do deserve it…. lets note here that he still has not made an accusation against shawn.. just lots of innendo!! well hell yes… if its innuendo, mistruths and lies…. well then i must be at camerafraud!!

    That is nothing compared to the millions of dollars of bribe money funneled into the Dirty Elections Fund.

  4. Geoffrey Wells says:

    Corruption, Embezzlement, this is all that most Government Officials stand for. From Judges in Las Vegas, Kathy Hardcastle and Art Ritchie, both heads of the 8th Judicial districts in Las Vegas, one in charge of the criminal and other in charge of the Family divisions of court respectively.

    They went before the Clark County Commissioners in Las Vegas, asked and recieved 16 million dollars to Remodel 3 courtrooms that were less than a 1000 square feet each. What does this translate to in price per foot. OVER $5000 a square foot for REMODELING. Are they in JAIL or PRISON, no. This is what is considered LAWFUL and ETHICAL behavior from JUDGES in Las Vegas.

    Being in Construction myself, and working on building some of the most expensive Casino and Hotels in History, they dont even come close to this price in square footage, including purchasing the land to begin with.

    I dont think anyone gives a damn that the government is corrupt, going to a DISTRICT ATTORNEY to FILE CHARGES against Government Officials is IDENTICAL TO HAVING A PEDAPHILE run a DAYCARE.

    • Law A. Bidingcitizen says:

      thanks for the vegas update…. i think… i doubt i could have made it another day without this little gem of information

  5. Law A. Bidingcitizen says:

    the silence is deafening…..where did everyone go? i guess shooting fish in a barrell is not much fun afterall
