Lauren Daugherty opposes Pete Peterson for Justice of the Peace, Pct. 1, Place 2 in his first-ever contested election
WACO – Ask the Libertarian candidate’s campaign manager, Stephen Carter. He’s going to say:
“He’s not raising any money; he’s not campaigning; Twin Peaks is not popular, he isn’t, either…They got rid of the DA and they want to get rid of him.”
Judge Pete “Smiley” Peterson, the guy who set bond on 177 politically active bikers at $1 million each on a cookie cutter affidavit signed by Manuel Chavez, a Waco Police detective who wasn’t there on May 17, 2015, until every other cop on the scene refused to sign the complaint drafted by DA Abel Reyna and his staff.
“This morning, coming up the stairs, I met a man who wasn’t there; He wasn’t there, again, today. I wish, I wish, he’d go away…” He did, remember? When it was his turn to testify in the Jake Carrizal trial, he was in French Tahiti, on vagabondation, etc.
We caught up with Lauren and her entourage at Papa Rollo’s in Hewitt, just in time for “The Three Stooges.”
When we quizzed Lauren about busting up the good ol’ boy lineup at the courthouse door, she said, “That’s the goal…We should be prosecuting crimes!”
Would she have signed the vague, fill-in-the-blanks “complaint” Peterson signed?
Stephen Carter, Lauren’s campaign manager
Deadpan: “I’m able to say no in tough situations!” Think she was kidding, but, yes, it’s true, it’s all true. This lady understands the requirements of a probable cause affidavit.
“Each defendant’s crimes should be specified in particular, individually.”
Rollo’s is a Democratic stronghold. Mary Duty, Papa’s wife, is McLennan County Democratic Chair. What about it?
“The Demos want to see the Republicans brought down a peg. Besides, it’s just what they were looking for.”
Actions speak louder than words…
Goal one: Block walking is the key to building personal relations with voters. “Besides, the weather will be getting cooler soon.”
The candidate became more specific in this sound byte.
