https://www.gao.gov/assets/700/693133.pdf This is the law governing Federal Employee misconduct, i.e. this case where the FBI and their inactivity has made justice impossible here because agencies just point and one another and the crookery goes on.
State law requires that when a citizen wants to file a complaint against the duly elected Sheriff of the county that the citizen write to the “Interal Affairs” division of the Sheriff’s department, at which time, under TEXAS LAW, Internal Affairs must turn over this case immediately to either the Attorney General’s office or the District Attorney.
On June 18, 2019, this citizen did just that. Followed the “letter of the law” all the way down the line, precisely, just as the Attorney General’s Corruption Division had instructed. Sending three letters, Return Receipt Requested, AND copying the AG’s office and the DA’s office.
The time limit is thirty days.
Which was July 18, 2019.
Since sending the registered letter, followed up by a call to the AG’s office, they have never heard from Internal Affairs, however, they did receive my letter.
Since the Attorney General’s office did NOT RECEIVE a letter from the Internal Affairs Division, which does not exist in McLennan County by the way we have since learned, this means that the Sheriff’s office should have contacted the McLennan County DA’s office.
The DA’s office received also a cc of ths complaint and two others filed.
Numerous calls to one Jason Chambers at the DA’s office gone unanswered.
Getting the nosey and rude receptionist to even put one through to Chambers is an ordeal not for the faint of heart or temper. This woman should be fired.
Sheriff McNamara took is own cousin and Deputy OFF a cold murder case when the likely “suspect” was indeed discovered to be one Johnny Ash, or “Joe” Ash, take your pick.
Then Johnny Ash became a “co chairman” of McNamara’s $122K fundraiser after we find out that Gambling is going to be handled by the County and little Abelino is of no use to “them” anymore, so they must turn their attention to McNamara, who, happily takes their money because he has none and is in debt.
So, is there recourse, Harry?
Damned right there is, but first, let’s see what is wrong with our DA’s office. Why they have ignored a letter from a Citizen about the cold blooded murder of a 100 pound woman for money with DNA waiting.
All Barry Johnson has to do is take this case and give it to the Attorney General’s office.
Nothing else. Still politically correct and easy enough but has NOT HAPPENED.
Sending or accepting THIS case is State Law, period.
Why has this not happened?
If those reading this think that there is NO RECOURSE, oh, please think again.
Unfortunately, not taking bribes, being honest is great, but since the character and moral fiber of our elected officials and willingness to be bought is so great, being honest may not be enough.
For certain, the public, including this writer, deserves a call back from Jason Chambers.
Going along to get along just makes you one of them. I have followed the law. I expect your office to do the same, and if not, explain it to the next Governmental Body, because there will be one.
