Houston Chronicle Editor Tim Fleck Attacks Texas Congressman Stockman after Stockman Calls for Investigation into Obama's White House Scandals

You know a conservative leader is doing the right thing when the liberal media attacks him/her. Well, Texas Congressman Steve Stockman is certainly doing the right thing because he has the liberal media attacking him on a daily basis. The next attack is expected to come from Tim Fleck of the Houston Chronicle. Fleck is a liberal editor who used to work for the Houston Press. Fleck takes his bias up a notch above most liberal media though because Fleck, on top of just writing negative articles about Stockman, has also tried to sue Congressman Stockman in the past and has even been accused of breaking into Stockman's home. Apparently, Fleck is not happy about the most recent press release from Congressman Stockman. (See press release below after Stockman's statement regarding Fleck.)
Statement from Congressman Steve Stockman's office regardin Fleck's upcoming Chronicle Smear:
The Houston Chronicle will run the ambush story Sunday that will misrepresent a recent error made by staffers and make personal attacks against Congressman Stockman.
Two weeks ago Congressman found out two staffers in his congressional office made contributions not allowed under FEC rules. As soon he I found out, the contributions were refunded and corrective action taken.
They obeyed the law. That’s the story.
Or more correctly, the lack of a story.
That is why the Chronicle will try to fluff it up by making other unrelated and unfounded attacks to create controversy where none exists.
The reason is simple. The Houston Chronicle has employed Tim Fleck to its editorial board. Fleck has been obsessed with Congressman Stockman since June 1996, when he forced his way into his home and verbally abused campaign volunteers until sheriff’s deputies were called. Now he using the Houston Chronicle for his personally crusade.
He has since sued Stockman unsuccessfully, and apparently cannot let it go.
Fleck once picked up a coral snake and was surprised when it bit him and he had to go to the hospital, so he’s not the kind who learns quickly.
He has written obsessively about Congressman Stockman for 17 years and is now using his position at the Chronicle to continue his obsession by having four different reporters follow Congressman Stockman and his staff, even watching Congressman Stockman take out his household trash.
One of the reasons Americans are abandoning newspapers in droves is the fact they now try to put journalistic lipstick on a partisan-slanted pig. The Chronicle’s hiring of Fleck and the upcoming personal attack are why growing numbers of Houstonians don't believe what they read in the paper.
The following is the press release Congressman Stockman sent out today:
WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman distributed to all members of Congress this month copies of “Impeachable Offenses: The Case For Removing Barack Obama From Office.”
“I hope this book helps convince my colleagues to hold Barack Obama legally responsible for his disregard for the law. When told of his offense, Obama sought to cover them up rather than accept responsibility and correct the mistakes,” said Stockman.
Stockman is the sponsor of H.Res. 306, which would force a vote on establishing a Select Committee with full subpoena power to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on Benghazi.
“Impeachment should only be a rare and last resort, but the book provides important details on the Obama administration’s offenses against office,” said Stockman.
“From Benghazi to Fast and Furious to crony deals for ‘green’ energy to Obamacare the lawless Obama administration must be reined in. I am calling on Congress to establishment Select Committees on these scandals with full subpoena power,” said Stockman.
“We’ve seen how the Obama administration smears and defames their critics. Congress should investigate these scandals and turn the matters over to special prosecutors,” said Stockman.
“Impeachable Offenses” is authored by New York Times best-selling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.
