Is this what voters pay Judge Sadler the big bucks for……to use his ivory tower office at the new commissioner’s court building (a building that he reportedly had a hand in naming after himself) as a “campaign” video studio?
As a recently posted YouTube video shows (link below story), the judge has no compunction about setting aside time from his schedule of allegedly “taking care of the county business” to take advantage of his taxpayer-funded “digs” by using his office suite as a backdrop for a video piece of “fluff” that looks to be intended to help get himself re-elected while also helping to promote a local model/actress/beauty queen’s career aspirations.
The 32 year old woman in the video with Sadler is Montgomery County resident, Shaune Stauffer (ex-trophy wife of Astro Jeff Bagwell).
As I watched the six minute video I had a hard time telling who was “promoting” whom.
All I could tell was that Sadler was having a good old time (indicated by his sheepish, school-boy grins and long looks into her eyes) while fielding this wannabe “media” queen’s softball questions that appeared all-too-rehearsed and intentionally aimed at furthering both of their private agendas.
Be sure to watch all the way to the end because, though this video starts off looking like some kind of legitimate media “interview”, you will note that at the very end of it Stauffer verbally “endorses” Sadler’s candidacy (with his nod of approval) and then you see a visual that reads: “Alan B. Sadler for Montgomery County Judge”.
If this isn’t a campaign ad I don’t know what is!
I thought it was unethical (if not illegal) to use any government resources for campaigning but Sadler must know something I don’t.
For those of you (like me) who are curious about the woman in the video I have a second link below this commentary of a recent self-promoting “demo” video of Stauffer that reveals more than you probably want to know about her.
I admit that after watching Stauffer’s demo I am left with the distinct impression that Sadler should have been savvy enough to run the other way rather than involve himself and his office in this questionable endeavor.
Or better yet, I have an idea………maybe he should sit down with a real reporter and answer truthfully the mountain of legitimate questions about his “hidden” twenty year record of feathering his own nest(egg) from the very office paid for by the taxpayers.
Incumbent Sadler is running in November for a sixth term as County Judge against businessman, Adrian Heath. Guess who I’m voting for?
Until next time……..
