How U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison lost her 2010 campaign for governor in 1999.<>
extraordinary act of corruption, Senator Hutchison
claimed that she had exclusive rights to use the name "Kay
Hutchison," (actually her married name)
so the woman born as Kay Hutchison should have run on her ex-husband's name (even though in divorce the woman had been awarded her maiden name back.)
everyone knew any woman can run for office in her
real name and demanding she run in the name of an ex-husband for
sake was absurd and the grossest possible insult to women.
Hutchison and incumbent District Clerk selected
certain judges to order the woman removed from the ballot. They ordered
woman - who had already
won the primary election by the voters - be removed and banned from running for any office - then ordered no other candidate in either political party could run
against the incumbent either, essentially declaring democracy has been banned and summarily ruled the incumbent was just given another term. Other judges turned
a blind eye, none daring to challenge the famous and politically influential U.S. Senator.
officials had been warned in writing by Mark
Ovard if they actually carried out what they were trying to do, none
remain in office. They proceeded
Hutchison also had been warned in writing by Mark
Ovard before finalizing what amounted to the most gross possible
using her U.S. Senate
position to literally eliminate democracy in that election - she would never be able to move to any other position. At one point she was considered a V.P. candidate
to McCain who was looking for a female candidate. That was stopped and by recounting the 1999 incident to his campaign staff.
Ten years is
a long time. Who would
remember a District Clerk's election that didn't happen a decade
that was in only one County anyway. To claim it
would affect her run for governor in the next century would seem totally irrelevant and unrealistic. Over 10 million emails had been sent on this back then, entirely
off the poltical chart. Politicians can only see the world of politics and have blinders otherwise. If it isn't directly in front of them politically they never see it at all.
This is why they are so stunned when they are removed or defeated. They truly did not believe it possible.
She announced she was going to run for Texas governor in 2009.
she was reminded of the 1999 incident and informed
therefore she could not win. Certainly she figured it an absurd claim.
U.S. Senator actually is a
higher position than governor. She has over 80% approval rating, the polls showed she had a 3 -1 lead, the most liked and well known Republican official in
Texas, and she had millions upon millions in her campaign funds, therefore an impossible election to lose. Besides, Mark Ovard wasn't even in Texas anymore.
By every measure she could not possibly lose.
didn't matter. He sent Senator Hutchison's campaign
a letter reminding of the 1999 incident informing that the Senator
devastating lose if she ran
for a different position. Of course she ran for governor anyway.
was obliterated in the Republican primary.
Hutchison not only lost the Republican primary in
the state, she couldn't even make a run-off and barely got more votes
3rd unknown candidate who
entered the race. A 3-1 lead had been changed to a 3-1 lose, something most political analysts would claim is a statistical impossibility short of a highly publicized
it takes for evil to prevail is for good
people to do nothing."
Contrary what most people believe, it takes
very little effort to defeat, remove and block corrupt
elected officials from the lowest to highest positions.
For those who are spiritual, there is one other possible factor and one Mark Ovard lectured on to literally thousands of officials on in the past - with numerous legal organizations
declaring it the best ethics training course in the County. For those who believe in God, there also is the reality that God would hate a corrupt official more than anyone else -
more than a murderer or rapist, a child abuser or thief. Because none of those took a oath. It is one thing for a person to not follow God's rules of behavior. Everyone will
break those. It is an infinitely more dispicable to double-cross God upon an oath and that is what a corrupt official does.
politician and official would rather lose every vote than to lose God's vote and for
reasons more than just an election outcome. In a blink of an eye a
person's entire life and
future can be destroyed and that's in God's hands. But corrupt politicians come to believe their holding office gives them great power and power/ego is their god. But their god
of self is not a god that makes or stops a stroke, heart attack or cancer, not a god that can save or wreck a marriage. It is a trivial and ultimately powerless god for all things that
usually only after removal do corrupt officials come to understand what
they most lost. It was not losing their political position. They lost
their legacy - forever. They are
seen by the community, by others and even by relatives and friends who keep silent as a dispicable person. That is ultimately how the person is remembered by the
community and by those who know the person. They are remembered as that corrupt person. That is what is their perpetual legacy in this world. They may not fair well
on Judgement Day either. God despises no one more than corrupt officials because they double-crossed God on their oath. Anyone who has a duty upon an oath should
execrise great caution and diligently do those duties as if their future in this life and beyond depends on it - because it does.
claim those corrupt officials lost due to political tactics and
efforts. Certainly that may well apply and be reason. Spiritual people
say it is because they lost
God's favor and instead God's anger. That also may well be true. But both may actually be the same. Whose calling are those making those efforts and campaigns to remove
corruption officials answering?
you bind on earth so shall it be bound in heaven." If good people, even just a few or even
just 1, calls for - openly declare - the removal of a corrupt official
no personal benefit in doing so, and pursues this rentlessly and faithfully, it will happen. Always.
