Three years later, it should now be clear, and obvious even to friends of Lonnie Cox, that aside from being a bully, he is unmitigatedly dishonest and is an appalling excuse for a judge.

Moreover, Cox is an embarrassment to Galveston County. Cox is the kind of embarrassment that if left unchecked will inevitably invite more corruption.

Cox said, “First ... $66/hour is the rate Galveston County has approved for court appointed cases, and is therefore a reasonable rate ...” (“Let’s talk about the issues in the county judge race,” The Daily News, Jan. 18).

No court appoints an attorney for a plaintiff. Cox was not the defendant — nor was he indigent.

Of his own Harvard educated attorney, Mark Stevens, Cox said, “Second ... None of Mark Stevens’ services benefited me personally ...” Because Cox lost — that’s why!

Despite the unintended humor of Cox’s statement, it displays a lack of class toward one’s cohort despite being given such a sweetheart deal.

Cox also said on Jan. 18, “I paid the entire bill from my bank account.”

It should offend even the casual observer to know that activist Judge Lonnie Cox financed his frivolous lawsuit against County Judge Mark Henry using campaign funds.

Here’s a money quote from Cox, “Third, Enos claims I awarded Mark Stevens a large judgment in a civil case. That is false. The opposing party to Stevens’ client was an administrative default. Stevens received no attorney fees as a result of the judgment.

Why in Sam Hill would an opposing party bother showing up to court having prior knowledge of the inappropriate relationship between Cox and Stevens?

Simple crony politics? Cox worked to get his unqualified wife elected to a justice of the peace slot. A few months after she won, Alison Cox asked for a big fat raise. As the administrative judge, Cox appoints all members of GCAD’s Appraisal Review Board, and he appointed his most strident supporter to the ARB, one Carol Dean.

In Cox’s frivolous lawsuit against Henry, Cox was unanimously overturned on every single legal point by the Texas Supreme Court, and a new law went into effect last year preventing activist judges like Cox from ever pulling a stunt like that again.

And yet, knowing everything I just wrote, Tax Assessor-Collector Cheryl Johnson, and County Commissioner Darrell Apffel endorsed Cox, anyway. It looks like Mayes Middleton still hangs out with Cox every chance he gets. No, I haven’t forgot about Cox’s protégé and biggest cheerleader, Facebook Judge Michelle Slaughter. Heaven knows why Slaughter is running in a statewide race where the other two candidates are imminently more qualified than she.

Cox is currently under criminal investigation with good reason, and one should question these supporters and/or beneficiaries if they will rescind their endorsement or support of Cox. Supporting Cox is supporting corruption.

What I’m concerned about now is the sleazy influence Cox would bring to the inmates of the Texas Department of Corrections.

Wow Shawn Christopher Phillips, you've managed to trash just about every politician in your guest column that hasn't and obviously won't be easily duped and bullied by you and your so called friends.

I suppose your own track record for those politicians that you support should be proof enough for the voters of Galveston county to see that your opinion of the people that you mentioned is just that, your own opinion.

It seems that SCP rears his head around election time, slings mud and then hides his hands the rest of year.

I have to wonder why SCP would attend a fundraiser last year for Judge Lonnie Cox in League City and just so happen to sit at the same table as myself, if he was in fact so "appalled" by Judge Lonnie Cox?

Perhaps it was the free food and drink that enticed SCP to attend a function with all of the same politicians that he just got through trashing in his guest column?

This guest column makes one wonder how just how much money was Shawn Christopher Phillips paid to write this meaningless piece of junk?? [yawn]

Carol Dean

Thanks, Walter for your comments! The truth of the matter is that SCP is nothing more then a Cyber Bully sitting behind a keyboard who does the bidding of several "low life" individuals because they are afraid to do it themselves!

Ray Taft

Apparently, Judge Henry thinks his gig might be up. So many good-old-boys writing columns trying to discredit Judge Cox. Shawn Christopher Phillips is just another one joining in.

Henry is the only candidate we need to be concerned about this election. Galveston County had devastating flooding during Harvey because Henry did little to nothing to prevent it. Henry has refused to allow property reappraisal in the aftermath of Harvey. Henry is the county judge who, lacking any legal experience, assumed judicial duties to supplement his income. Henry has done little to nothing to benefit the good people of Galveston County before, during and after Harvey.

Any offense Cox might have committed can be solved via judicial discipline, if it gets that far. Henry’s sins need to be dispatched at the ballot box. Do you want to continue down the same path that led to destruction? If so, Henry is your guy. If you want change, try Cox.

Doyle Beard

I believe there are many uninformed people regarding reappraisal of property during the year.All property values can now be challenged this year. I know it wont help some now but there are many factors that would be devastating to reappraise properties after many budgets are that far along in the year. A huge economic affect would happen that would not be good .

Jim, it is possible that you will not get a reply from SCP as it would involve using math.

BTW, Henry is still using those same high paid attorneys to fight other cases that are still being deliberated against him.

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Walter Manuel, I would note that in your entire rant defending Lonnie Cox - not once did you dispute the veracity of what I wrote.


However, I will now waste my time correcting the record because of the lies you used to attack me.


I have never attended a Lonnie Cox event. To begin with, I honestly don't think they would let me in.


The event you are referring to was the campaign reelection kickoff for Judge Patricia Grady of the 212th District Court who I have always supported.


I arrived early, and I left late. You arrived late, loaded a plate full of free food, and plopped yourself down at a table that I was already sitting at. I was having a conversation with Andy Mann. You stared, you ate, and you said nothing. You left shortly thereafter.


Walter, your support of Lonnie Cox and his corruption are duly noted.


But don't get me wrong, Walter, I enjoy reading your amateur riddled, fact challenged, gossip filled, ranting comments as much as anyone else does. I rank you right down there with Carol Dean.


Speaking for myself, reading what the two of you have to say in the comments section is much like watching a train wreck about to happen. It may be good entertainment value perhaps, but it has absolutely no substance.


Carol Dean, you should be ashamed for your appalling public behavior at last night's debate forum at COM. You owe both campaigns, TJ Aulds and I45 Now, and the entire audience an apology. However, due to your lack of class, I won't be holding my breath.


County Judge Mark Henry is a conservative Republican who has kept his promises to prosper Galveston County, and he is currently the finest County Judge in Texas, bar none.

First lie, SCP...you sat directly and way too close to me at a Mid-County Republicans event, scarfed down chips and dip and then walked out without paying for your token iced tea. In fact, the frustrated waitress came up to me and wanted to know why you did that.

My appalling behavior last night? What exactly did I do SCP? The conversations that I heard afterwards were the shock of people not believing what Fakecloth said out loud, not once but twice. I think he is the one that owes the audience an apology.

I guess your job as being a "lackey" to Mark Henry, Barbara Meeks and others is the highlight of your shallow life. Sorry about that.

Walter Manuel

Shawn Christopher Phillips perhaps it was Judge Patricia Grady's campaign that you attended where, yes I hesitated to sit down across from someone who took up half the table with their trash and had NO consideration for those others in attendance that needed a place to sit down because of the limited seating.

I also had to read your name to see who obviously this unkept gentleman was because I was shocked when I read your name tag and you were such a hot mess notcat all looking like the obvious outdated picture that the GDN uses for your column.

We won't even go into your "writing" skills because obviously from what I overheard of your conversation at the table, your simply the easiest to be convinced to publish someone else's writing.

I don't even know why I responded to your post seeing how at the end of the day, your kind is simply a follower who has to have others tell you what to say and think.

Perhaps politics isn't your best asset and your writing skills certainly leaves a lot to everyone's imagination.

You just keep being a good little "steeple" Shawn Christopher Phillips and I'll keep telling the truth where you show difficulties in doing so by your opinion of others.

In closing, why don't you provide the GDN with a more recent photo of yourself, you give yourself too much credit these days. [yawn]

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Once again Walter, you have failed to dispute the veracity of my guest column.

Jim Forsythe

SHAWN CHRISTOPHER PHILLIPS please respond to my post.

Carol Dean

Oops, I forgot to mention that Judge Cox was the keynote speaker at the event where you enjoyed eating free food and writing down your notes in a print that was so miniscule, I hope you didn't misread them when you got home.

BTW, we are all still waiting for your response to Mr. Forsythe.

Also, who is Ben Oliver from Foley, Alabama and why did he make such a generous contribution to you "evil" PAC, Red Texas? $6,586.00 is not "change".

Jim Forsythe

Thank you , Carol.

Carol Dean

Veracity??? I think the issue is YOUR veracity. Opinion and innuendoes do not qualify as facts, SCP and you like to banter around your opinion, (for what it's worth).

Remind me again who you "work" for.

Walter Manuel

And Shawn Christopher Phillips, you failed to respond to Mr. Forsythe's comment asking you to respond.

What are you waiting on the phone to ring so that you can be told how to reply?

Looks like your struggling Mr. Phillips to do this on your own. You even are starting to look like a fish out of water struggling to breathe.

Now instead of responding to me Mr. Phillips, we're all patiently waiting for you to respond to Mr. Forsythe. [whistling]

Jim Forsythe

Thank you, Walter.

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Epic fail, Walter. In attacking me you have failed for the third time to dispute the veracity of my guest column, and you have struck out.

Carol Dean

"Keep Talking...SCP!" LOL!

Walter Manuel

LOL, oh my goodness Shawn Christopher Phillips, your way out of your league trying to discredit me.

If anyone with a working brain cell figures it out, you've obviously still upset that all of the politicians that you supported were ALL the losers to the very politicians that you mentioned in your opinion column.

Your so easy to read Shawn Christopher Phillips that even those not involved in politics can figure out your attempt at using a play directly out of the cheap "dirty politics 101" play book.

Your doing well to show everyone in Galveston county your "cheap" look! [rolleyes]

Jim, now that SCP responded, we know he really had nothing to say. Still avoiding the questions. tsk, tsk

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Jim Forsythe, my response to your post is that Lonnie Cox filed a frivolous law suit that was an assault not only on the Texas Constitution, but it was also an assault on the authority of the people's duly elected officials.

Lonnie Cox hoped to parlay his court case into an election win for County Judge.

Galveston County Judge Mark Henry defended the rule of law, the people's rights, and the Texas Supreme Court unanimously backed his position against the frivolous law suit brought by political opportunist and activist judge, Lonnie Cox.

Not real sure what it is that you do not understand.

Jim Forsythe

Please answer.
Help me with  positives thing Judge Henry has done.
Please outline the good things he has done.

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Jim, County Judge Mark Henry received the endorsement of Conservative Republicans of Texas, and they said:

"Galveston County Judge Mark Henry is a 21 year retired Major in the U.S. Air Force who staunchly supports law enforcement by investing 20% more in our public safety spending since 2011. He has cut the county tax rate every year since being elected to office by a total of 12% - the lowest rate in over 17 years. Mark Henry is the conservative choice for Galveston County Judge."

Meanwhile, Lonnie Cox is currently under criminal investigation.

Jim Forsythe, Carol Dean, Walter Manuel, please answer and explain why you would support someone who is currently under criminal investigation for elected office.

Jim Forsythe, Carol Dean, Walter Manuel, please answer and explain why you would still support someone for elected office if a special prosecutor is named.

Jim Forsythe, Carol Dean, Walter Manuel, please answer and explain why you would still support someone for elected office if an indictment is handed down.

Jim Forsythe

President Trump  is currently under criminal investigation and a special prosecutor has been named and a indictment may be handed down. People still support him, you may, but I have no way knowing if you support Trump.
Do you support Trump? 

What is Judge Cox under investigation for.  I have no clue as what he is being investigated for? Has a special prosecutor been named. If not, kind of putting the cart before the horse. If none of this is true, you are pushing a candidate by using false rumors. If it is true please fill me in, with the facts.
What makes you think I support Judge Cox?

PD Hyatt

ROFLOL @ you Jim.... IF there was an ounce of truth to the investigation the progressive liberal demon-crats would have strung Trump up from the highest tree in that area already.... The progressives in Washington have become so corrupt that the leadership in the FBI and the DOJ are corrupt too, for if they were not they would not be bailing so fast and furious to get out of town.... They would also not be so much in a hurry in stopping people from finding out the truth about how they got the FISA warrant and how they got the Hildabeasts email server and the Uranium 1 investigation shut down.... Of course people like those progressives feel like they can do what they want and could really care less about the law....You might want to educate yourself about what it really happening in our nations capitol before you continue to spew forth the lies of the fake news media....

Jim Forsythe

The point was not, is Trump guilty, but that if you overlook it for Trump, how can you say it is wrong in Judge cox's case not to overlook it. When he is not even being investigated, as far as I know.. If you are stumping for Henry, do not say the reason to be against  Judge Cox is because he might in the future be under indictment.
The same holds for Trump, one should not be against him for what might happen.
As far as the Clinton's, they are being investigated. I hope whenever the results are , they will just be part of are history.

Jim Forsythe

In my post , what did I say that was a lie? Please point it out, so I will not make the same mistake again.
Is Trump under criminal investigation, has a special prosecutor been named and could a indictment be handed down.
All this true, as far as I know.

Don Johnson

I just happened to talk with the DA this evening … needless to say Judge Cox is not under criminal investigation. SCP continues to spread this malicious lie in the hopes of defaming Judge Cox and influencing the outcome of the County Judge election. I suspect demand letters will soon be sent to the Daily News, SCP, and anyone else involved in spreading this libelous lie. SCP appears to think he is lawsuit proof; because his net worth is next to zero. And, it’s a great miscalculation to think Mark Henry is going to give him any cover with a taxpayer funded defense team, when the hammer falls.

SCP is pushing this fabricated smear, because the issues make his candidate look really bad. For example, Mark Henry refused to support the Governor’s proposal for property tax reform during the last legislative session. This was a major effort the Republican Party was pushing and Henry turned his back on the GOP and joined with Democrats to oppose this initiative. Then later this year Mark Henry cast the deciding vote to defeat disaster reappraisal for Hurricane Harvey flood victims. At the hearing, the County Auditor provided testimony that ample funding was available in the rainy day fund to pay for the cost of reappraisal and cover any drop in 2017 revenue. The county judge has grossly misrepresented the impact of Galveston County approving disaster reappraisal by saying this would negatively impact school district, cities, and other governmental entities that already passed budgets for the 2017 fiscal year. Of course this was nothing more than a giant falsehood – tax revenue for school districts, cities, and other governmental entities would not be impacted at all from Commissioners Court approving disaster reappraisal. The only way any of these governmental entities could be included in disaster reappraisal is if their governing bodies (i.e. school trustees, city council, etc.) approved a resolution asking the CAD to include their entities in a reappraisal of damaged properties. Mark Henry deliberately promoted fake stories about school districts, cities, etc. being fiscally damaged if the county approved disaster reappraisal. Of course he did this in the hopes it could be used as a cover story to explain his vote on disaster reappraisal. His phony stories just go on and on … like his big claims of cutting taxes year after year. The truth is Commissioners Court was forced by the Texas Legislature to raise the property tax rate 6 cents in 2009 to pay for expected healthcare bills from indigents living in public housing around UTMB medical facilities. What the legislature missed was Hurricane Ike wiped-out the public housing and the indigents fled to Houston, New Orleans, and other near by cities. It turned out the 6 cents was just a windfall for Galveston County government and in 2010 when these facts came to be known the tax rate should have been immediately lowered; however, when Mark Henry discovered he had all this extra property tax revenue he decided to hang on to it and build up huge reserves, pay off a few bonds, slowly dribble back a penny (cut in the tax rate) per year for the next 7 years. That way he could claim to be a big tax cutter, while in reality he cheated taxpayers keeping the tax rate artificially high throughout his term in office. Today Galveston County has the highest tax rate of neighboring counties and this highest rate of debt among similar sized counties in Texas. And when asked, Mark Henry can’t explain why our tax rate is so high or why we have twice the debt of similar sized counties. Suffice to say this is why Mark Henry needs SCP, Ray Holbrook, and others out spreading smear and falsehoods; because, the facts and issues do not favor Henry. It’s time to let Henry go work at his beer joint fulltime and elect Judge Cox lead the county into a prosperous future with much better flood control measures.

Carol Dean

Ta, Ta, SCP. Have a nice day.

Doyle Beard

Sounds like this guy is privy to info the general public does not get.

Carol Dean

There is a lot of good info out there for everyone! You just need to do your research and certainly don't pay attention to the "hogwash" that SCP, Henry and Clark Spew. They like to leave out important details!

Dylan Riccio

Hey Shawn is there an e-mail address I can reach you at? I have some information on Lonnie Cox in regards to my mother that was murdered by my father. My father was meeting with Judge Cox weekly to discuss some legal matters of my moms that I think you would like to hear about...

Walter Manuel

Seriously Shawn Christopher Phillips, that's the best that you got to try and trash Judge Lonnie Cox????

You've stooped to the lowest and smelliest part of the shi* wagon if in fact your spreading more lies about a political candidate of ANY political party just so that you can promote your candidate at whatever cost even while losing your own credibility along the way.

It's no wonder why many voters hold their noses when voting these days because of the likes of people like you.

Shawn Christopher Phillips, you clam to be a "conservative Republican" and if I recall past elections correctly, many of the politicians who ran and won on "conservative republican" values that you trashed in your opinion column are within your same political party.

In my opinion, Shawn Christopher Phillips, your style of getting what Shawn Christopher Phillips wants and not what's best for ALL voters in an election is certainly a huge pimple on the butt of the Republican party and turns off a lot of people during the election process.

Perhaps Shawn Christopher Phillips, your real motive is wanting to try to further divide the Galveston county Republican party and it's voters rather than trying to make it stronger?

No matter how low you choose to stoop Shawn Christopher Phillips with your unfounded and defaming claims against a political candidate, you'll still smell and look as though you just climbed out of that same manure wagon. [whistling]

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Gee... it would seem I've struck a nerve. LOL

Lonnie Cox IS under criminal investigation.

I can't wait for the "hammer to fall".

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Hey Don, can I still pick up my "demand letter" even if a special prosecutor is named?

I'd be glad to save you the postage.

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Lonnie Cox IS under criminal investigation.

Don Johnson, when can I have my "demand letter"?

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Lonnie Cox IS under criminal investigation, and Tax Assessor-Collector Cheryl Johnson endorsed his candidacy anyway.

And the great legal scholar, Don Johnson, has thus far failed to produce a single "demand letter".

I demand my "demand letter".

Don Johnson, your mouth shouldn't write checks your backside can't cash, my friend.

Shawn Christopher Phillips

Lonnie Cox IS under criminal investigation, and Tax Assessor-Collector Cheryl Johnson endorsed his candidacy anyway.

Neither I or the Galveston Daily News have received a "demand letter."

Don Johnson, if you can produce a "demand letter" for me, I am willing to have the Galveston Daily News photograph me receiving my "demand letter" from you.

Deal?

Or am I correct in my assertions about Lonnie Cox, after all?

Don Johnson, put up or shut up, my friend.

Don Johnson

The Galveston County District Attorney is NOT investigating Judge Cox – anyone that says different is just an out-right liar. SCP is big on baseless political claims designed to spread false and defamatory slime … and of course he never has any proof. Because, all he’s got is a ridiculous accusation from a Democrat that’s one of Mark Henry’s divorce attorneys and the rest he just invents. And why is it Mark Henry sanctioning a ne’er-do-well to drag the campaign for County Judge down into the muck of falsehoods and made up allegations; because, he’s afraid if the real facts of his tenure come out, people will find out he’s not supporting what taxpayers want and his credentials are not what he’s been claiming all these years. (Here you go SCP, deal with these facts.)

In 2010 Mark Henry claimed he was a business mogul. Truth was, he owned a little surplus parts store located in a dingy Quonset Hut and this was the best he could do after maybe half a dozen prior business failures. Of course he probably counted this as a success in as much he avoided prosecution for selling bad aviation fuel to the military. It was reported federal authorities were furious when they learned jets were flaming out because of the bad fuel Mark Henry supplied. Of course this is something Henry doesn’t want to talk about and when a local newspaper published this story he filed suit. Too bad his (taxpayer funded) legal dream team was not available to fight this battle for Henry; because he lost this one and had to pay something like $30,000 in consequential cost & damages. Maybe this is why some the veterans in Henry’s VFW post are not so fond of him -- did you know Judge Cox has been asked to be the speaker at the annual dinner of Henry’s VFW post. Well let’s face it, Mark Henry just does not appear to be a very pleasant person and he doesn’t seem to get along much better at home than he does in public. In multiple divorce pleadings the accusations of reprehensible conduct are almost unbelievable. (We can talk more about this if SCP wants to take the conversation down this path.) And, of course anyone that would allow SCP to act as a spokesperson for them, you know that’s someone with a serious character issue. While Henry’s campaign continues to complain about Judge Cox paying legitimate expenses of office from campaign funds, they dodge questions about Henry’s transfer of $62,775 from his campaign account to his Beer Joint. Querulously, this question has been referred to an attorney, Joe Nixon. In case you don’t recognize the name, Joe Nixon is one of $450 per hour attorneys on Mark Henry’s legal dream team being paid from taxpayer funds. So will taxpayers now be responsible for defending Henry’s inappropriate use of campaign funds … this certainly does not sound like a legitimate expense of office or campaign expense. With the documentation currently available it would be easy to file a criminal complaint about Mark Henry’s handling of these funds and this is something that would really be investigated – is that the kind of campaign you can sink your teeth into SCP? Well I got to run to an appointment now, but if you want to keep peeling back the layers on Mark Henry with these little exchanges, just let me know.

Carol Dean

We've got "the goods" on Mark Henry, why don't we start "peeling back the layers" on SCP? Maybe Henry will share Enos with him, knowing that pro-bono work is probably all SCP can afford.

Carol Dean

This is exactly why I keep saying..."Keep talking", SCP! You are showing your true colors and allowing the public to see EXACTL who you are! ROTHLOL!

Carol Dean

Should we replace the picture of Judge Cox on the nasty, baseless flier that you sent out through RedTexas, SCP? We all know that it is YOU who is the LIAR!

Doyle Beard

I cant speak for SCPlies but we all know Cox mislead the public about who paid for his defense fees. If there's nothing with him doing so why did he tried to cover it up? Very confusing matter, sounds like Willie Boy when he was in White House.

Carol Dean

Mr. Beard, how far were they into the case before it was disclosed that Henry was paying "out of the system attorneys" over a million dollars of the tax-payers money? Hope you also understand that Henry is still using these same attorneys who are still working to defend him. How much money are YOU willing to give Henry when we already have several qualified attorneys within our system who get paid whether they are working or not? Just wondering how long and for how much Henry will continue to "milk" us, the tax payers.

Doyle Beard

Both candidates are unworthy to be serving the public in my opinion.

Randy Chapman

Henry and Cox need to have an open forum debate instead of Henry getting his cronies to do his less than truthful bidding for him.
