NCC has tied McHenry to the shooter

in the Florida Gonzalez/Drake/Abrami Republican murder/suicide. Drake is from Rutherford County and is coming back for burial. All aspects of this story (even if you don't believe half) are pretty sorry.

I wrote about the allegations in a post over at Scru Hoo and of course PGBB.

Here's the NCC link. The interesting part for us is at the end.

Also, a fun caption-contest and the winner:


Sorry for the outside blog-pimping. I don't always cross post but I do want you all to be up on the latest.

Seriously folks. Go read DQ's story.

lcloud, I didn't post it here

because it's all sourced off-the-record and I just can't find hard evidence of the link. I keep getting names of people who worked for McHenry and Gonzalez. I can find records that they worked for one but not the other.

And I had not heard of the Drake/McHenry tie. I just learned he used to live in Rutherford County and that's about it.

Drake's is alleged to be the boyfriend of an accused murderer, Harlow Cuadro That tie is rumored to be the motivation for the Florida murders and his suicide. He was allegedly trying to get money out of Gonzalez (an old friend) because Cuadro's asses got seized in Florida because of his alleged gay escort service/ video porn activities. I shouldn't say alleged because I saw the sites and they're not looking too alleged to me.

But back to the murder. I've seen posts and comments and allegations that Drake had client lists of the escort service that he was using to threaten Gonzalez with, that he was desperate and angry. Cuadro faces the death penalty if convicted and we all know a good lawyer is expensive.

I swear it's all so weird that everyone is onto the Larry Craig case. If you don't believe in coincidences it would be easy to wonder if the Craig story didn't leak because someone threatened by this situation has friends who would rather dump Larry off the ship. (This reminds me of the Abramoff "investigation" that just went after the school funding and not a much larger case of Indian fraud based in the Department of the Interior with Stephen Griles. I wrote about Taylor's involvement in that. No one's been questioned on the bigger case that I imagine involved many many more legislators.)

Back to this situation, after the names of the dead were posted, my inbox was full of emails saying "This is the case. This is what's going to bring McHenry down." Now, I don't know about that. I'm still waiting on some evidence.

You're welcome to cross-post it here.

It looks to me like Pat has sold his constituents a bill of goods for a good long while. It's time for some answers.

Okay, I will.

Hey, I was about to close my quote there when you must have replied to my comment and I could no longer edit it. The quote ends with "down." the rest are my thoughts.

Hey, A, did you see my new banner?

I'm still working on it. With all my house dot gov hits I wanted to spruce up the place. I didn't think the words "bye bye" were big enough. I went with the dream-like repetition effect.
