New Caney, May 22 – Precinct 4 County Commissioner Jim Clark unleashed a scathing criticism of JP James Metts’ numerous ethical problems from his past and his present, based upon factual information from Fox 26 News, the Houston Chronicle, Empower Texans (one of Texas’ leading grassroots conservative organizations), and The Golden Hammer (Montgomery County’s leading daily newspaper). The site begins with the statement, “The Truth Is Not Always Pretty, But It Is The Truth.”
The media sources provide the following information:
- Metts’ sexual harassment of a County government employee forced taxpayers to settle a sexual harassment claim using tax dollars rather than funds from Metts;
- The harassment ruling by the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission led to calls for Metts’ resignation;
- “Metts fired half of his staff to make room for friends and family, including his girlfriend”;
- Metts is a part of the Davenport Ring of corrupt elected officials who follow the direction of disgraced political boss Marc Davenport;
- Metts misrepresented to County employees that Davenport is his “sworn deputy” to force Davenport into County employee meetings;
- The Montgomery County Tea Party PAC gave Metts a 0 rating;
- Empower Texans noted that most people caught committing the type of abuse Metts has committed resign from office, but Metts is seeking a promotion to County Commissioner;
- Metts is “For Sale” to out-of-County money men, as his campaign finance reports reveal;
- Metts abused his power as a judge in the JP Court by filing a lawsuit in his own court where he was the plaintiff, plaintiff’s lawyer, and judge all in the same case;
- Metts has a substantial unpaid judgment, federal tax liens, but no real property (so he won’t pay property taxes);
- Metts caused the death of a man in a careless wreck, according to The Houston Chronicle.
