What’s the Beef Between Ramsey Elder and CFISD Board Candidate Bill Henderson?

Dirty politics is nothing new, but rarely do you see the kind of campaign being waged against conservative Cypress-Fairbanks ISD board candidate Bill Henderson.

NotBill.com, a website launched against Henderson, frames Dr. John Ogletree’s re-election bid challenger as a ineffective one-term Harris County judge with a string of legal and financial problems, including run-ins with law enforcement and deadbeat dad status on child support payments.

The website, paid for by Harris County Precinct 015 Chair and accountant Ramsay Elder, has some conservatives scratching their heads as to why the author would eat one of his own.  Or, why he would be throwing the election for a known “liberal Democrat who voted for Obama in 2008”, says Lone Star College-CyFair Republican Club chairman Matthew Conner.

According to the Federal Elections Commission, Ogletree has made only some $750 in contributions to two Democratic candidates, including U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-18), and Kevin Powell, a candidate for New York’s 10th Congressional District who lost in the Democratic primary.

Claims Ogletree supported President Obama in 2008 could not be substantiated.

Elder’s FEC contributions record looks like any perennial and well-funded Republican contributor’s wrap sheet, with some $23,000 in donations to Republican candidates.

So, what’s with Elder’s beef? And why would he commit an action which would result in the status quo for CFISD?  Talk amongst yourselves.

  3. I got that postcard in the mail. I thought it smelled kind of fishy, right off.

    BTW The Ryan, Ogletree and Covey (ROC PAC) are supported by the teacher’s unions. Is there some connection between Ramsay and the teacher’s unions, I wonder?
