Mr.Semenza,

Yesterday on this site ( http://www.victoriaadvocate.com/news/2011/mar/09/gs_uhv_faq_031011_131920/#c140767 ) you have said this:

“Writein: Public officials' campaign finance reports are viewable by all. You can view Rep. Morrison's most recent campaign contributions and expenses by visiting: http://204.65.203.5/public/477651.pdf If you would like to visit the homepage for her campaign contributions and expenses, you can go here: http://www.ethics.state.tx.us/php/fil... I reviewed Rep. Morrison's most recent report, a 47-page filing. A few highlights from the most recent reporting period, from July 1 to Dec. 31: The Friends of the University of Houston Political Action Committee donated: $3,000.00. Texas A&M Political Action Committee donated: $500. You can infer from that what you will. For now, we have no plans to report the story you mention because the merits do not seem to warrant it. If you find something different, please feel free to let us know. -- Gabe Semenza”

Here is my response: I am not the smartest person in the room, but as an American, a Texan, and a voter in the 30th Texas House District. I deserve the right to know. For the within past ten years, this town Victoria have witness corruption of leadership in the V.I.S.D, City Council, Law Enforcement, and even in the District Attorney’s office . Therefore my questions about the relationship between State Rep. Geanie Morrison and that of Texas A&M and Texas Tech is warrant and it should not be cast off as being without merit.

I look up sites such www.Followthemoney.org and other independent research sites. For me I see a pattern. In Spring 2003 HB3015 (which our State Rep. wrote) passed and sign into law by Rick Perry. Correct me if I am wrong, Mr. Semenza, but didn’t the Victoria A&M club give Mrs. Morrison an award because HB3015 benefited Texas A&M with UT and Texas Tech, while punishing other universities? Along with that, Texas A&M started to fund the Morrison campaign in 2004, 2006, and 2010. And for what? When there is no opposition from the weaken and sacred Democrats. What about the so called “rumor” about the unmarked $100k expenditure asked by B.S. Spotter?
