WHY RUBEN PENA PAYS EXTORTION MONEY TO MONTOYA? 
 
THE FBI HAS THE SCOOP ON MONTOYA 
[now I have the document]

TODAY IS THE PROOF RUBEN PENA IS PAYING MONTOYA  FOR SILENCE - PENA WILL SOON ENOUGH PAY ME FOR BEING PART OF MONTOYA'S JOINT ENTERPRISE- HE WILL THEN CLAIM TO HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF EXTORTION

 EDITOR'S NOTE:  Why the repeat of this post? 

The lead story for Wednesday finally gives my readers the proof from AUSA Hagen that Montoya uses cover-up to make people pay him.  A hard truth - Will Mary Helen Flores denounce Montoya for protecting the guilty - nope - she will not.

The pattern of extortion is real.  Cris Valadez verified it, and now filings by the DOJ prove people pay for silence. 

 Further, Ruben clearly chose to pay Montoya to keep this information off the Internet.  The best way to protect candidates from this type conduct is for the BV to keep on repeating this post so all candidates in the future know, that if you pay Montoya for silence - it is coming out anyway in a bigger way.  This should hopefully stop this nonsense.

ORIGINAL POST


The FBI is fully aware of everything but refuse to act because Montoya through Saenz is helping them with their dirty work.  There is no entity more unethical and without a moral compass than the FBI.  In my earlier post I outlined the FBI and DOJ's lies that my claims against Villalobos and Limas were all fanciful and without merit. We all know they were not and that the FBI and DOJ lied to cover their own conduct.

They secured a judge to say each document I produced did not exist even though they were filed with the court.  Has the incompetence of the FBI reached the point they must turn  a blind eye to an extortion scheme by a convicted drunk to get their dirty work done? 

Constable Gomez who pays Montoya to remain silent has been put into the position of being interviewed by the FBI to verify Saenz is lying when he says Erin Garcia never reported the two crimes allegedly perpetrated by her employee.  Saenz has offered this former employee of Erin Garcia a deal if she just lies.  The bullying by Saenz of witnesses will come out in the Motion for New Trial in the Raul Salazar case.  The question which Gomez is hush hush about is, did he verify for the FBI he is a victim of Montoya's extortion scheme.  Cris Valadez has already verified the endless middle of the night calls for money.  Is this why he is paying for an ad for his mother in law? - to keep quiet all of his dirty little secrets.  Cris I have some of your dirty little secrets - time to tell wiffy my boy.

DO TELL US RUBEN, DOES MONTOYA TELL THE TRUTH OR IS HE AN EXTORTIONIST?

"This raised some salacious comments from a courthouse observer who remembered when Peña was trying to overturn the Precinct 2 commissioner's race after accusing Brownsville businessman Ernie Hernandez of paying politiqueras to harvest mail-in and walk-in votes to steal the election. "I Remember when Ruben was knocking on doors trying to serve the subpoenas on old ladies to go testify in court and now he is the one avoiding being served," they said. "But it's not over, we understand that Ruben has some problems with his role in a scandal in the San Benito school district that won't be as easy to dodge."

RUBEN PENA DELINQUENT ON PROPERTY TAXES
By Juan Montoya

For the length of the campaign, Ruben Pena, Cameron County candidate for Precinct 2 commissioner has been promising he will take a $10,000 salary cut to help out taxpayers with their burden.
Now, evidence has surfaced that the Harlingen native has been too busy running for office to take care of his own tax obligations so that as a result he has become delinquent on 2009 taxes he owes to corresponding entities such as the cities of Harlingen and Brownsville, local school districts, Texas Southmost College, the Brownsville Navigation District, and even Cameron County.

"Why does (Pena) have to be elected before he lightens the burden of the other taxpayers by paying his delinquent taxes and pulling his share of the load?" they asked. "What he owes is more than $9,500, or nearly the $10,000 he wants to donate to the taxpayers."
The tax collector-assessors office lists eight accounts in Brownsville and one in Harlingen and the amount owed. The amounts include late charges as of Friday(March 12)"

MONTOYA ADMITS TAKING PAYMENT FROM ERNIE HERNANDEZ TO TRASH PENA

WHAT’S THE REAL STORY ABOUT RUBEN PENA?

By Juan Montoya
As the countdown in the runoff race between former Brownsville City Commissioner Ernie Hernandez and former Harlingen attorney Ruben Peña for Cameron County Commissioner heads for the April 13 showdown, followers of both men have started to dig up past peccadilloes trying to paint their opponent as the worse of two evils.

Hernandez (who advertises on this blog) ran an ad in last Sunday’s Brownsville Herald pointing out that Peña was delinquent on nine accounts with the Cameron County Tax Assessor-Collector. Hernandez said Peña owed nearly $10,000 and then smugly declared that he (Ernie) was a good citizen and current on his tax obligations.
 
... .
 
There followed a lengthy legal battle between the heirs of McGarr and Peña and Pedraza where his nephews claimed that Peña and Pedraza had used the estate for their own benefit. Additionally, even Pedraza filed a lawsuit against Peña accusing him of “a variety of other misconduct.”
He claimed that he “was the victim of the more sophisticated machinations of a purportedly self-dealing Peña in the administration of the guardianship and the estate.”
In October 1996, the Duthus filed suit against Peña, Pedraza and the bank in federal court alleging that “Peña and Pedraza breached certain fiduciary duties…committed fraud, and engaged in a civil conspiracy which damaged (them)… and that Peña and various law firms and attorneys associated with Peña committed legal malpractice.”
 
... .
 
Kendall, on the stand during a misconduct hearing for the justice of the peace who issued the arrest warrants against Peña, told the court “that Peña escaped indictment on misapplication of trust and other charges brought against him by the Duthus…because the statute of limitations had run out on the allegations against Peña.”

The federal case against Peña (No. 99-40041) was heard by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and originated in Brownsville as case (B-96-CV-191).
So there you have it.

STORIES BITE PENA, RUSHES TO TAX OFFICE

By Juan Montoya
A day after Ernie Hernandez, his opponent in the runoff election for Cameron County commissioner for Precinct 2, ran an ad in the local daily accusing him of being delinquent on his property taxes, Ruben Peña dutifully marched to the county tax man and paid his dues.

RUBEN PENA UNVEILS HIS CAMPAIGN (SIGN)

By Juan Montoya
 
Foiled in his attempt to place his yard signs before his seven challengers to the Cameron County Pct. 2 commissioner position placed theirs, Ruben Peña had his workers cover the offending sign after supporters of his opponents flooded the city with complaints.
 
By Juan Montoya
 
Rather than remove the offending sign and then come back to put it up again 10 days later, Peña's workers instead draped the sign with a thick black square of heavy plastic and secured it with tie-downs. About the only thing that can be seen is the lettering saying "Precinct 2" when the wind blows the plastic away.
Meanwhile, the candidates for the position have all been trying to make their mark that will set them apart from the pack.
 
 
ART MCDONALD RUNS FOR POLITICAL COVER TO AID RUBEN PENA - ACCORDING TO MONTOYA
 
What does Montoya have on the short tempered McDonald - btw - the other day while I was waiting outside Judge Linda Salazar office waiting for Judge Ochoa to sign an order, McDonald ordered his bailiff to order me to leave the area. McDonald needs a full psychiatric exam with projective testing.  I told the bailiff to tell Heil McDonald I was going nowhere - I was their on official business.  The bailiff returned to the courtroom and I stayed.  Asking me to lower my voice is one thing, but ordering me to leave the area is another.  The hypothalamic disorder along with another problem keeps me from knowing how loud I am speaking. 
By Juan Montoya
 
"Art is in a difficult position given Peña's political connections," said an attorney acquainted with the case. "If he decides to grant the summary motion based on the expiration of the statute of limitations, he runs the danger of going counter to the Court of Appeals precedent in the case. If he doesn't, he could incur the wrath of the Peña and Vela clans."
Peña is the brother-in-law of former City of Brownsville Mayor Blanca Vela, who is the widow of the late federal judge Filemon Vela Sr. During the recent race for Precinct 2 commissioner, his handling (or mishandling ) of the McGarr estate was a major part of the his opponent Ernie Hernandez's campaign.

POETIC JUSTICE IN PENA'S ELECTION APPEAL DENIAL?

By Juan Montoya
 
Was the dismissal of Ruben R. Peña’s election contest against Ernie L. Hernandez Jr. for the Democratic Party’s nomination for Cameron County Pct. 2 commissioner by the 13th Court of Appeals a case of poetic justice?
Peña, who has had his own personal experience with time running out on legal proceedings in the past, apparently fell victim to the sands of time.
In the decision dismissing the appeal , the court stated that since the applications for mail-in ballots had begun Sept. 3, it would be too late for elections officials to stop the process and disrupt the elections in November.
Peña has contended in the past that he was robbed.
Although Peña came up 49 only votes behind Hernandez with 2,110 votes 2,159 votes, his main contention was that the mail-in ballots had been illegally acquired by Hernandez and his supporters.
Hernandez received 240 mail-in votes versus 34 for Peña in the runoff.
Peña had requested that the court order a new election.
Just as Peña was not favored by Father Time in this case, in the past he has been its beneficiary.
In 1997, a brouhaha ensued when a county justice of the peace issued arrest warrants against Peña that were served on him by a county constable.
Peña was placed under arrest at his office and placed in the county jail on allegations brought against him by the heirs of Rex McGarr, a wealthy farmer who had Peña prepare his will and made him its co-executor. They claimed that Peña and Robert Pedraza, their ancestor's foreman, had schemed to deplete their relative's estate though a variety of unscrupulous moves.
 
Montoya Attacks Ruben Pena for having voters served with subpoenas in his election contest against Ernie Hernandez
 
Friday, May 28, 2010
Both Guadalupe and Jose Alberto Cisneros voted through the mail in the runoff race for Cameron County Precinct 2. Now, as a result of the challenge to those ballots by losing candidate Ruben Pena, they were visited by the process server hired by Pena's lawyers.
 
... .
"The lawyers who sent Herrera to my home were hired by Pena," she said. "I want to know what gives them the right to come into my house without our permission. How can someone just go into someone's house and walk in without permission? My brother was scared and went into seizure because that man with a badge and a gun (Herrera) just walked in after him and threw the papers in front of his door. I want to know who's responsible for this."
Pena, who is attempting to gather enough witnesses to overturn the election results that resulted in his loss to Ernie Hernandez by 49 votes, apparently is resorting in trying to get enough voters to say they did not know who they voted for when politiqueras mailed in their ballots.
 
Friday, May 7, 2010
 
Apparently, Peña is hoping that he can cower enough elderly and homebound people who voted through the mail to recant their votes to persuade a visiting judge from Hidalgo to overturn the results where he lost by 49 votes to Hernandez or get the judge to order another election.
"He is asking them who they voted for and if they knew who they were voting for," said a source. "He's trying to scare some of them by telling them that they were videotaped when their ballot was filled out. Many of them have called us to tell us that he's trying to scare them and sign an affidavit saying that a politiquera filled the form and that they didn't know who they voted for."
 
Tuesday, May 4, 2010
 From her red beach chair in front of the Cameron County Courthouse during the final day of early voting for the port and college elections Tuesday, 82-year-old Herminia Becerra's eyes twinkled as she asked "Que dice el lloron?"

She was referring to Ruben Peña, a former Harlingen attorney since moved to Brownsville and of his bid to overturn the election for county commissioner of precinct 2 which he lost by 49 votes in a runoff against former Brownsville city commissioner Ernie Hernandez
