Why Krusee Really Quit.

Seeds were Planted in the Spring.

In the spring of 2006, I figured we’d plant a seed and start telling the story of the “Krusee Corruption” by finding him an opponent, in hopes that a viable opponent (with money) would naturally surface to take him out in 2008.

Myself and a couple of pals in our PAC, plucked an unknown from the universe (with no money) to run in Krusee's 2006 Republican primary. As a matter of fact, the opponent we found signed up just minutes before the WilCo deadline closed. I remember actually directing with her on the phone in the final minutes to get to the right building, to meet the deadline.

On a shoestring budget we moved forward. I created her VoteBarbara.com website, fliers, ad (CLICK TO READ) and free online bumperstickers hitting Krusee hard for his double tax of tolling roads we've already paid for. Our volunteers, led by one of the finest people I've ever met - Richard Reeves, delivered fliers to thousands of District 52 homes.

With virtually no money, an unknown got 36% of the vote.
(45% East of 130). That showed Krusee, and incumbent, was very vulnerable.

The work we did in the primary paid off earlier than I planned, with Krusee barely winning the general election by only only 5% of the vote.

Krusee’s narrow win against a Democrat in a Republican (Williamson County) district was a real shocker. Krusee's main opponent, Karen Felthauser, had virtually no money to produce a competitive campaign.

So, in 2006, Krusee was shown to be very vulnerable. Funded candidates always smell blood in the water, and Krusee knew it.

Krusee bailing out is kind of bitter sweet.

I was getting geared up for a sweet knock-out punch, but I guess that gives me more time to take down some other CAMPO tollers. I've talked with a very big name, some weeks ago, who is seriously considering stepping into that race as a Republican. She'd be good for us, very good - 100 times better than another toller like Maxwell - I'm confident she could beat him if he steps in for the R primary. A lot of great bloggers are working hard to spread the word and take down these crooks who steal our tax dollars and freeways to build double tax toll roads.

The Dem in that race is also good for us.

Some have emailed me asking if the info I have about Krusee and Wheatley advertising on a sex swap website was also part of his reasoning/timing. I don't know.

and failed to represent our families:

They ignored the public and voted to spend $910 million tax dollars to shift our Central Texas freeways to toll roads. The tollers below with photographs, have terms ending in 2008, and are our targets for the coming weeks and months.

From left to right, the “Sleazy Six”: State Representative Mike Krusee, Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty, Round Rock Mayor Nyle Maxwell, Georgetown Mayor Gary L. Nelon, Cedar Park Mayor Bob Lemon, Kyle Mayor Miguel Gonzales

Krusee, was one of the Sleaxy Six. Maxwell says he's stepping down as well. We need everyone to spread the word to ensure we get viable funded candidates for all the rest of the "Sleazy Six" ASAP - deadlines to run takes place at the first of the year!

As we remove more tollers, we can peel off more tolls.

It might be some days before I post that nasty stuff (close-up pics of nasty bits). I'm trying to figure a couple things out first. Keep checking back.
