ABELARDO GOMEZ -
STUPID AND SELF-SERVING OR WHAT?

This story is not complete.  I remain waiting on documents.  But this is what I know.  Abelardo Gomez hired Steve Berlanga, son of indicted Sonia Solis.  She was indicted in federal court for mailing more than 1 mail ballot.

I have visited with a lot of bailiffs.  Everyone agrees Abelardo is a liar when he says that it was the deputies' idea of giving up $500 of their pay raise so that people like Steve Berlanga could get a bigger raise.  They want someone, the Texas Rangers or FBI to  come in and interview them.  They want guarantees of no retaliation.

If Abelardo is actively being looked at in the Sonia Solis case - remember he received more mail ballots than anyone else - by coercing the deputies to sign this document he may have acted to influence a witness in a federal criminal case.  Now it would be stupid beyond stupid to think Sonia Solis is going to take the fall because her son is getting a bigger raise - but this is Cameron county where elected officials are dumber than dumb when it comes to what they think they can get away with.

I have to get to court - plus meetings - once I have the information I need I will complete this story.

Because of the way you worded it I cannot approve your comment - but I can assure you I am looking deeper

we'll be here waiting. What do you think will happen to Sonia and her son?

The reason they think they can get away with it is because they get away with it. Are things changing? Maybe. Or maybe just while the feds are looking. I am not overly optimistic.

My sources on this story are shut down - no document will be produced - Abelardo Gomez has his people so scared I actually had 3 bailiffs act as if they had no idea about the Justice Hinojosa incident in the parking lot. I tried to get information from numerous people at the court house - the bailiffs have become hear, see, speak no evil. They now know nothing.

Even court staff other than bailiffs made it clear that the entire matter with Abelardo Gomez has people scared and no one is talking.

Wow, what a system - tyranny takes over courthouse where the people go for justice.

Funny how a little fear keeps the truth silent.

Just look at the company he keeps and you'll understand why people are scared.
