Blake Farenthold Flakes On $84K Repayment To Taxpayers

Y’all, this could only happen in Texas, the land that heralds corruption.

Okay, so Blake Farenthold resigns from being a congressman shortly before the hooter-toters show up to scalp his ample nasty butt for language and actions so disgustingly gross that they cannot be described on a website where my Momma comes.

He left congress owing us $84,000 of our money used to compensate a young woman for Farenthold’s grotesque flirtations.

And then he landed on a feather pillow.

Farenthold told listeners on a Corpus Christi radio show Monday morning he had landed a position working for the Port of Port Lavaca-Point Comfort.

His annual salary will be $160,000.10, just below the $174,000 he earned in congress.

He’s going to lobby for the port of Port Lavaca. If you’ve never heard of Port Lavaca, let me assure you that they’ve never heard of you either. Now, let me tell you why Blake will fit right in.

Texas Rangers investigated one Port Lavaca port board member and a Calhoun County commissioner two years ago for stealing money. Another board member promotes pro-Confederacy and Deep State political theories on his personal Facebook page.

A match made in heaven.
