In a series of questions I have publicly asked Bill Flores on this and other Blogs, a question of his residency has come up, causing me to call Mr. Flores a carpetbagger. This is not meant to be pejorative...it fits the definition.
Be that as it may, Mr. Flores has changed his FEC data filed with the Gohmert campaign for his June 11, 2009 donation that listed him as residing in Sugar Land, Texas and as President of Gryphon Exploration.
His data for that donation now reads as Bryan, Texas and Phoenix Exploration.
You can search here for his name, then search the page for "Gohmert" to see the new data:
The original filing (Sugar Land/Gryphon) is HERE.
The question remains "why" was it originally the other way? Or why was it important to change it now?
I appreciate Mr. Flores being responsive to these questions and look forward to learning more. I just wish it wasn't like pulling teeth.
UPDATE: I spoke with Mr. Flores for about 20 minutes today (February 8) and will have more on that later, but I want to mention ASAP that we visited about his changes to the donation data and he confirmed that there was an error on Mr. Gohmert's end having to do with the accountant, and that information was changed to reflect the correct information Mr. Flores originally sent along with his check/credit card information.
This answers the campaign contribution question and, from what I can tell, the residency question. Remember, my residency question is based on where the donations indicated he was living, not where he was actually living, since anybody can have multiple addresses.
