Steven Hotze. The “Man of the Year”? Really?
Aubrey Taylor Communications has an address in Clear Lake off of NASA Rd 1. It seems to be a UPS store, a PO Box. I’ve never seen a hard copy of his publication. It seems more of a blog on Blogger without a URL like HoustonBusinessConnections.com which he claims to be associated with.
ATC claims to be:
“Houston Business Connections Newspaper© is a non-partisan politically focused news source that’s published by Aubrey R. Taylor Communications for the sole purpose of informing, empowering and imploring our readership to elect the “BEST” duly-qualified people to public office who value, respect, and appreciate our support!”
This non partisan news source that has made Steve Hotze the “Man of the Year”. Steven Hotze is the same guy who has been indicted for his role in a former cop holding a gun to an AC repairman because he thought he was carrying fraudulent mail in ballots in his truck. Hotze has been charged with one count of unlawful restraint and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He has since been sued by the AC repairman. You can read about this bizarre case at the Texas Tribune.
Hotze is a well known anti-gay community, “Christian”. He has led the effort to end the non discrimination ordinance in Houston and has opposed the Supreme Court’s ruling on same sex marriage.
Hotze recently held an Election Denying SausageFest, with My Pillow Guy, and other election denying conspiracy theorists. He has a PAC called Conservative Republicans of Texas.
The bottom line is that Aubrey Taylor is nothing close to being non partisan. No one can label Steven Hotze “Man of the Year” and claim to be non partisan. With this in mind why in the hell are Democrats donating to his publication/blog? Taylor puts out endorsements including for George Risner who was trapped by Commissioner Adrian Garcia and other republican candidates that shouldn’t run for any office. He has endorsed Democrats, some who have donated to his publication, others who probably didn’t ask for it.
Democrats shouldn’t be anyway near Aubrey Taylor Communications or Houston Business Connections News and they shouldn’t be giving this organization money.
