    Ole John Wiley Price just had his office and home raided by the FBI.

    The new Mayor as well.

    Gotta love the Flagship of Texas Democrats!!!!!!

    Good to include link OP.

    Some say he has done a lot of good for his part of the county. But this would be on par for Dallas. It's got more corruption than a border town.

    NewDoc, I know that a lot of his constituents would follow him into battle, but I think they'd do it blindly and without any understanding. In his 25+ years representing Oak Cliff, I doubt anyone could argue that the residents he represents are truly any better off because of what he has done to fight for them. He is only out for himself, and it looks like he finally may have been caught going after just that. If he had worked as hard at trying to improve the economy in South Dallas as much as he spent race-baiting, then maybe he'd have a resume to lean on.

    Whatever trinkets of good JWP did for his constituents is heavily outweighed by his greed and willingness to sell them out to guys like Perot Jr. Take a look at his version of good, with regards to the Inland port ordeal. The Dallas Observer has a great set of articles following that story.

    In my 'back sliding' days, I got to meet JWP and at times he could be a real charmer. But, after shaking his hand, you better make sure your watch, wallet and keys are still there.

    Oh, and hopefully Kathy Nealy finally gets what she deserves.

    As someone who votes Dem, I say charge 'em and jail 'em if the facts support it. I don't know anything about Dallas politics.

    I don't put on a cheerleader outfit for the Dems nor do I deceive myself as to the bipartisan disease of corruption and incompetence. So I don't know what it's like to wave the pompoms, Majorwhiteapples. Must feel damn nice. Your shot at Texas Dems sounds like an Aggie saying "typical t-sip."

    Yo, yes, he is the Commissioner for Dallas, but, he's also been the big name in SOC and South Dallas going far back when he held a council seat for Oak Cliff (if my memory serves right).

    With a list of acquittals and whatnot, his rap sheet reads like a Hollywood celebrity off the wagon...

    Here's a view of JWP that everyone in the metroplex will see as typical JWP behavior:

    Satchel, for clarification, the charges I listed were rumored to be handed down once the FBI filters through the amount of evidence it confiscated yesterday. I'm guessing that supposed charges based on up to 10 years of evidence aren't the things that the FBI just cavalierly hurls at a wall to see what sticks.

    Considering how many times he's avoided potential lengthy jail time in the past, I think it's wise not to dive in head first with charges that could be dropped due to some mis-filed forms or whatnot.

    FBI's MO is to take their time.

    They have him by the short hairs and he knows it. His Bentley, BMW, expensive SUV's, etc were of interest, but the Feds dragged out puters and files from his ofc, his home, his asst's home in DeSoto, and Nealy's townhouse.

    The FBI doesn't waste their time on small stuff. Add to the above that his phone has been tapped per a 2008 interview, you know they have the goods.

    So you can say "no charges" have been filed, but the game is solely in the hands of the FBI. Not JWP's....and that drives him crazy b/c he's used to bullying people around to get his way.

    Hope he enjoys the next 3-4 yrs of his life. They may be the last free ones he has till he croaks.

    C'mon, Satchel, your schtic is old and predictable in this forum. The 7 vehicles, home safe, computers, wire taps, tax questions, etc., are all faked evidence, just a ruse to punish a decent, law abiding public official, right?

    Mine was a simple closed question designed to get a yes or no answer or confirm what is already known. Why do you insist on making this harder than it is?

    The FBI, with certainly some exceptions, usually has it's crap together when finally closing in, esp with race certainly coming into play.

    Well hell, since you won't answer my very direct, very simple question, I'll have to answer it myself. Here goes:

    The Commissioner has not been charged with any crime. This is a salient fact, much to the chagrin of most of you.

    No charges or indictments yet so far as I know. As far as the rap sheet, a lot of that was civil disobedience and some for not so civil disobedience. Funny thing is that for all the bizarre behavior, he's really become a skilled political operative and done some good.

    Yeah well, in this thread, all that is quite beside the point. [​IMG]

    Yeah and Mark Cuban was going down for insider trading because "they" had the goods on him.

    Wave bye bye to your boy Price, Satchel. It's taken far too long to evict that scum sucking piece of **** from public life.
