I will start off by saying I’ve never met Don Workman. I’m sure he’s a nice man who is deeply devoted to God and his Church. I’m sure he means well and only wants the best for his City, State, and Country.

That being said…

He’s trying to rob you of your vote Lubbock. Today I recieved the protest forms from the TABC office in Austin, and Don Workman along with Lauran Collins (both of Lubbock, though Workman used to live in Hockley County) are the 2 people in Lubbock protesting the election.

By the way Don Workman is a liar since he told KCBD that he was doing research for the parties. Turns out he was one of those parties.

Collins is using an ad from a 1950’s era AJ calling for people to vote against intoxicating beverages as her reasoning. Here is part of her statement:

Lubbock a local option election was believed held on August 6, 1950. Complainant has a copy of a petition printed in the Lubbock Avalanche Journal listing citizens requesting a “vote against the sale of all intoxicating beverages Saturday August 6.” The clipping did not have a year nor indicate if it was a county-wide or city of Lubbock option. Thus option was believed to have been held in the early 50’s. This should be of public record but complainant has not obtained the details as of this date.

Nothing solid there. From what I hear the TABC should have on record every election dealing with alcohol on record.

**UPDATE** The Collins protest was prepared by the same attorney that represents the Lubbock Area Baptist Association (LABA). His name, Craig Brummett.

There are also protests from people in Abernathy, Slaton, and New Deal. We will get to those on the show tomorrow.

More on this later and on the show.

    I heard the reason TABC hasn’t said much about these protests or thrown them out is that the head lawyer down there is on vacation in Europe.
    IS THAT TRUE??? You’ve got to be kidding me!

    What I wanna know is “do we have a lawyer” representing us? The crazies at the Baptist Association has their’s. They claim to be so high and mighty but they deny our rights as registered voters. I am soooo angry!!! Guess they will continue to hide and go to the strip to get their beer.
