GALONSKY'S BOYS
 
This picture was taken of the signs on Abraham Galonsky's land across from the Central library.  It is his land and he can set the rules, but his conduct tells us everything we need to know.  Who are his boys?
 
The back door deals between Tony Martinez and Abraham Galonsky have the taxpayers on the hook for millions.  It is not disputed that Galonsky is supporting Tony Martinez, Cesar De Leon, Sergio Zarate, and Michael Gonzalez.  I guess Michael either did not have the money for a sign or has not gotten around to placing his sign.
 
Galonsky has banned anyone he does not support from placing a sign.  Historically this lot has been the Town Square for political speech before the election.  Galonsky decided no more - only people who will do business with him will be allowed to place their signs.
 
You cannot say you are against Tony Martinez and Abraham Galonsky and for Sergio Zarate, Cesar de Leon, Michael Gonzalez, and Robert Sanchez.  Sanchez is the joke and he does not even know it - or does he - has Galonsky offered him a business deal to get him out of debt and save his home and business?  Sanchez is a nothing more than a plant.  The goal since day one has been to have Sanchez in the run-offs so that Tony Martinez can wipe the floor with him. Carlos Marroquin - much of the money behind Sanchez has proven very interesting - later in the week.
 
BELOW IS MICHAEL GONZALEZ PONDERING WHEN HE WILL GET AROUND TO PLACING HIS SIGN ON GALONSKY'S LAND - GALONSKY CERTAINLY GAVE HIM ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A SIGN
 
 
 
TUESDAY - A READER LEAD ME TO THE TEXAS LOTTERY COMMISSION AND SERGIO ZARATE'S DOWN BY THE BORDER.




UPDATE:  It just hit me and I verified it.  I was always curious why at Bingo they never actually pay $150.00.  Texas law charges a .05% fee to the winner and it is for the Bingo Parlor to collect the fee.  In the documents I will post on Tuesday for example - The first quarter for 2009 the Zarate's claimed $124,379 paid in prizes.  $.05% is $6,218.95.  This is what they show on line 3a.  This money was paid by the winners, not from the profits of DownbytheBorder.  But the form is incomplete and under items 6a and 13a - amount paid to the Texas Comptroller for each quarter the amount is zero - which is exactly what the Texas Comptroller's office told me.  This is why the IRS is investigating.  The total due - $26,555.97, which includes interest and penalties. 

From the Texas Lottery Commission Page

"How much prize fees does the organization collect from winners?
A licensed authorized organization must remit a 5% prize fee for all prizes awarded."

An open records request shows $26,555.97, never paid to the Texas Comptroller's office.  These documents have been forward to the IRS agent assigned to the investigation along with my evidence Zarate paid McHale to retaliate for my investigation into DownbytheBorder.

The forms are not signed and no money was paid.  The Texas Lottery Commission took no action.  But there are more documents which the IRS may order.  I was unwilling to pay the search fee.  But think about it, their own accounting papers show $26,555.97 due, and according to the Texas Comptrollers office nothing was ever paid.  In fact the forms are incomplete and not signed.  In fact the IRS opened the investigation because Zarate claimed the Texas Comptrollers Office was in fact paid.

By 2010, the Zarate's and Lucios were tight as friends.  Guess what, press reports have the Lucios during the same period intervening for Charles Isbell with the Texas Lottery Commission.

I am tired.  I worked 16 hours today.  A lot of mail to go out before I head for my surgery at 7 a.m..  I have to be up by 5 a.m. to make it to the post office and then head over to my ride.  Tuesday's post will have all of the  documents.

Something smells rotten - and it should shock no one the Lucios are in the middle of it.

Why did the Texas Lottery Commission run cover for the Lucios.  I will be sending another report to the IRS agent investigating the matter now that I understand the missing money is money collected from the winners. 

There needs to be a serious DOJ/FBI investigation of the Texas Lottery Commission, the Sucio Lucios, Charles Isbell and the Zarates.  I'm not letting it go guys.

Lincoln Park is on the Agenda for tomorrow's meeting. It's placed oddly as the last item, under "Purchases/Bids/Contracts." Last time time it was an "Action Item," placed earlier in the meeting, even though the language used was similar.

I posted months ago sources on the UT Board of Regents did not want the park.

They lost the hospital district in Hidalgo. What Austin sees is the two counties cannot work together as envisioned for the medical school. The authorization to create a hospital taxing district will fail big time in Brownsville./

It is time UT stop stealing from the poor and Veterans - yes sir, they cannot build a medical school without VA subsidies

I am so done with UT, the city needs to male overtures to Texas AM to see what they will do for us.
