The same week that Victor Thorn exposed Glenn Beck (AFP, April 28, 2010) for the deceitful fraud that he is, this writer interviewed Debra Medina’s lawyer, who produced a smoking gun in the railroading of the gubernatorial candidate and darling of the Texas tea party movement.
Ms. Medina, 47, was the little-known, grassroots, constitutional candidate campaigning against two political behemoths—incumbent Rick Perry and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson—for the Republican nomination for governor of Texas.
Around the first of the year, when people began to pay attention to the upcoming March primary, they also noticed Ms. Medina begin to make a Sarah Palin-like impact with policies stressing property rights and gun ownership. She said that her first official act as governor would be to hang a copy of the Constitution in her office.
Her popularity began to grow, and her numbers—quickly doubling from 4 percent to 8 percent in the polls—sped upward. When that figure kept expanding and soon tripled to 24 percent, crowding Sen. Hutchinson at the top and leaving the incumbent governor in a floundering third place, Rick Perry became concerned—concerned enough to resort to dirty tactics.
At his office in Austin, Texas, Attorney David Rogers gave AMERICAN FREE PRESS the details.
