THE INFLUENCE PEDDLING IN SOUTH TEXAS GETS WORSE BY THE MINUTE - ADMINISTRATIVE JUDGE BANALES LATEST TO BE ACCUSED OF TAKING MONEY IN CONFLICT CASE

"Valdez filed exhibits showing campaign contributions Banales and his wife Peggy, a former county commissioner, took from law firms that shared attorneys fees with Celis or represented him in civil cases. Also, the firm representing Celis in the current case is listed as part of the host committee for a Banales fundraiser scheduled for Monday, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times reported in its Thursday editions."

Now personally, I think the defendant in this case is guilty as sin - so you know my bias - But it is as if the latest United States Supreme Court decision on the matter is meaningless - until Governor Perry steps in and calls for a special session to end the giving of money to judges - justice will not be an option in Texas
