BREAKING: ALL 3 of Hidalgo's Indicted Staffers Receive New Filings in COVID VACCINE Bid Rigging Scandal
On November 30th, according to documents all 3 of Harris County Judge Hidalgo’s indicted staff members were hit with new filings for Misuse of Official information in the ongoing COVID vaccine bid rigging scandal.
The Staffers will be expected in court on 12.11
I presume the charges come from the Texas Rangers finding that numerous documents and communications that were ordered to be produced by Grand Jury subpoena had been concealed by the Judge’s office and made unavailable during the earlier Grand Jury proceedings.
The “concealed evidence” included the following:
Harris County Judge’s office employees used their personal phones to communicate about the Targeted Community Vaccine Outreach project with the owner of Elevate Strategies; and,
Draft documents showing Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo personally edited the scope of the Targeted Vaccine Outreach project and mentioned the owner of Elevate Strategies LLC in her editing one day before the scope of work was shared with the owner of Elevate Strategies LLC and more than two weeks before the project was publically announced; and
WhatsApp and SMS messages showing Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo and her staff believed that the majority of the Harris County Commissioners Court were going to vote against funding the Targeted Community Vaccine Outreach project and used the County Judge’s Emergency Authorization powers to bypass the voting process and award $10,973,00 to Elevate; and
WhatsApp messages had been deleted after the initiation of the Grand Jury investigation.
