Matt Beebe Calls Upon Joe Straus And His Austin Lobbyist To Stop Lying

(San Antonio) Today Matt Beebe called out Joe Straus and his Austin lobbyist, Bill Hammond, to cease spreading false information regarding Mr. Beebe’s taxes.

On Friday BAC PAC, the campaign arm of Texas Association of Business, released an attack on Matt Beebe where they accused Beebe of operating businesses which had gone into tax foreclosure and forfeiture. The statement that Beebe had “operated both companies while he had forfeited their right to exist” is a blatant lie.

Matt Beebe commented on this lie saying, “This is a blatant lie that was easily verifiable, had this lobbyist desired to use his clever Open Records Request to determine facts, instead of misrepresent the and smear me, my business, and the employees who rely upon my business for their livelihood.”

“It’s a shame that a lobbyist who claims to represent businesses could show such a blatant disregard for the truth regarding my successful small businesses. Bill Hammond has definitely tipped his hand on whom he serves. Perhaps he has spent a little too much time in Austin and should consider getting back into the private sector to remember the nuances of running a small business.”

“We demand an apology and an immediate retraction of this vicious slander.  I understand the need for Joe Straus to rely upon surrogates to spread lies given his pledge that his campaign ‘won’t tear down our opponent

’, but even these sycophantic surrogates must be held to a basic standard of truth. While the details are complex, the truth is quite simple – we never improperly operated our businesses” Beebe concluded.

The truth is that Digitactics, Inc never transacted business as a Texas Corporation until 2012, even though it was founded in 2005 and allowed to go dormant when Mr. Beebe chose not to start his small business as originally planned.  After starting HEI Systems & Solutions LLC in 2007, and purchasing a struggling small business in July of 2011, it was decided – independently of Mr. Beebe’s eventual decision to run for office – that rolling up all business entities under the Digitactics trade-name effective 1 January 2012 was the appropriate strategic decision.  Initially the plan was to reincorporate under Digitactics, Inc, however the Comptroller’s office informed Mr. Beebe that the existing legal entity could be administratively cleared through the filing of additional paperwork, which subsequently occurred.

With respect to HEI Systems & Solutions LLC, in 2007 it was founded as a subsidiary corporation, and the parent-child relationship was incorrectly recorded by the Comptroller’s office.  Therefore when annual Public Information Reports and Franchise Tax filings were reported, they did not get aligned to the proper entity.  This was also subsequently cleared up.

Matt Beebe is a successful business owner in San Antonio.

    Trump Wins! Harris County Republicans Suffer Biggest Loss in History of the HCRP

    Last night’s presidential results were historic. For the first time in decades, Republicans will have a uniquely consolidated power base, controlling the White House, Senate, and House, as well as a majority of governorships. As a result, we should be able to appoint conservative justices, eliminate Obamacare, get rid of the Johnson Amendment (which censures the church), cut the national debt, open up the energy markets, protect religious liberties, and so much more. As my friends at AFA stated, “We were about to go over the cliff. The knockout punch was about to be delivered to the America that our Founding Fathers handed to us.

    Now It Is Your Time And Your Turn!

    Now it is your time! Do you ever see destructive things going on around you and wish you had the ability and opportunity to stop them? Like when you hear the occurrence of some tragedy, do you ever wish that you could have been in the right place at the right time, to prevent it?

    On Tuesday, November 3rd, you have an opportunity to do just that. If you live in the city of Houston, you will have the opportunity to vote NO to Proposition One, the “bathroom” or H.E.R.O. ordinance.

    Contrary to the proponents of this ordinance, it has nothing to do with equal rights (which are already protected under federal and state law), but everything to do with promotion of sexual deviance in our society, in an effort for us to accept yet one more assault on our common sense and decency.

    If you were to order pizza for dinner tonight, but the phone attendant taking your pizza order asked you if you wanted dark meat or white meat, or crispy or regular skin, what would you think? Perhaps you had dialed the wrong number?

    You might feel similarly by reading the Republican Party platform and comparing it to the words and actions of so-called “Republicans”, from Harris County to Washington D.C.

    Let’s take the City of Houston mayor’s race. We have two “Republican” candidates, Stephen Costello and Bill King.

    Support Lance Berkman Vote “No” on Proposition 1 Bathroom Ordinance

    Six time Major League Baseball All Star, Lance Berkman, recently took a bold principled stand in opposition to Houston Proposition 1 – The Bathroom Ordinance. The liberal left and LGBT community are attacking Lance Berkman for having the courage to stand on his principles. He needs our support.

    Lance Berkman is getting bashed in the sports media because he exerted his First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech by recording a radio commercial, opposing Houston’s Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance. His commercial began airing this past Thursday. The Bathroom Ordinance would allow troubled men, who claim to be women, to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.

    Houston City Council Is Legislating Immorality To Allow Boys Into The Girls Bathrooms and Showers

    For many years we have all heard from both the Right leaning Democrats and the Left leaning Republicans that we cannot “legislate morality”. While for now I will not address the stupidity of this I would like to make a few points for you to ponder.

    The City of Houston is trying to legislate morality, but in there their Godless hearts they will fist attempt to re-define “morality” before they legislate it so that it to include the sexually confused and the sexually perverted.

    When you go to vote during early voting and on November third, and hopefully you will vote, the first thing you will see is Proposition one, also known as the HERO or “bathroom” ordnance.
