I have been away from PECTruthwatch for quite some time because I have had other things to pursue and do. But I will not remain seated and silent when I see a Facebook post like the one below by former PEC Board President and current board officer, James Oakley.
What Mr. Oakley suggested was racist. A sitting County Judge in Texas has suggested that a black man accused of a crime in San Antonio, TX should be lynched. Do the members and employees of PEC agree with Mr. Oakley’s statement? Do the people of Burnet County? I trust they do not agree. I hope they believe America to be a nation of laws and due process. The accused is entitled to a defense before a jury, however heinous the accusations against him may be. See Mr. Oakley’s incendiary post below:
Mr. Oakley’s statement is unacceptable and he should apologize to the members of PEC. He may do so on this site if he wishes. If he does not apologize, he should resign. He should resign both of his positions– as county judge, and his seat on the Board of PEC. He is not fit to serve.
If he does not resign from PEC, other directors should impeach him. They should call a special meeting of the board and address the matter forthwith. There is no place on the PEC board of directors for an open racist. This is not political correctness. It is racism in its rawest form and it is offensive. This cannot become the new norm.
It is well known that Mr. Oakley, with limited talent and intellect, aspires to higher office. Sadly for him, his Facebook statement will follow his future and haunt him into the afterlife.
