Oscar Kazen is a REAL Democrat

I tend not to take a side in the Democratic Primary. I support all Democrats and want nothing more than to see a stronger party. However, the 9th County Court primary race is an exception to this rule.

Oscar Kazen vs. Laura Lee Salinas is a weird match up for a primary. From inside sources this should be a general election contest, not a race for the March 7th nomination.


For example, Salinas’s voting record from Bexar County Elections indicates she has never voted in a democratic party. Neither under her current name, nor the name she went by when she was married, Laura Reyna.

A search on the Texas Ethcis Commission web site shows that for the last reporting period, she didn't contribute to any democratic candidates or causes, but she gave money to a Republican candidate, District Judge Raymond Angelini. (She then went on to sign the petition to get Lauro Bustamante on the ballot against Raymond's wife, Karen Angelini, but that's another story.)

She was spotted at Paesano's last Friday having lunch with Republican Candidate for County Court at Law # 6, Wayne Christian, who is running against Phil Meyer and who, by the way, Oscar defeated in 2002. I guess they were strategizing?

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...


In contrast, the Kazens have a long tradition of public service to the democratic party. From Chick Kazen, the Congressman, to former Webb County D.A. Jimmy Kazen, and current sitting judges Philip of the 227th district court and Federal Judge George Kazen.


If you look on the Texas Ethics Commission website, you will see Oscar gives generously to many different democratic causes, such as the State Tejano Democrats, The San Antonio Northeast and Northwest Democrats, and the Bexar County Democratic Party.


Kazen not only participates from a financial standpoint, but participates in the operations and leadership of the party as well, having been a delegate for the last two state democratic conventions, and is the guy schlepping sand bags and yard signs in campaign offices.


You want to talk DINO… look no further than Salinas. Real Democrats need real support, and I am not buying for a second that Laura Salinas is helping the party! Expect a lot more information on this race over the next month.

Well. I have watched Judge Kazen up really close as he has facilitated the organization of a group of Precinct 3 activists over the last 6 months.

I have this to say about Judge Kazen: he has be given a particular gift by God - the gift of a true and deeply-rooted judicial temperament. He has the ability to hone in on salient facts quickly and charitably, gathering all the necessary threads into his hands, then passing skeins to others to weave a real organization of change in this county. He can clearly articulate every position, synthesize them into an acceptable form, and then convince a group of disparate activists to agree on a workable set of action items.

It would be a huge lost to everyone in this county if the inexperienced lawyer, Ms. Salinas, won this primary. She may have the temperament (although I have seen no evidence of it the 3 times I have heard her speak); but she is definitely not seasoned enough to fill his shoes.

This is the only primary race I will publicly comment on; and this comment is only for the sake of the common good of the people of Bexar County. I truly pray that any Democrat who reads this will vote for Judge Kazen in the primary.

The same Express_news that endorsed Cuellar says Oscar is unfit, because he charges for weddings. Absurd ! They are against almost all Real Democrats, and endorse the DINOs like Cuellar, and Crouch.

At least they got it right with Carlos Uresti.

It doen't take a lot of reading between the lines to see that Gloria Padilla (Express News reporter) was probably talking about Oscar Kazan in her March 4, 2006 article, "Judical Incumbents Intimidate Challengers". Salinas didn't win this race, Kazan lost it and for good reason.

Judges charging for weddings is a cash business and if Kazen reported to the IRS $10K my guess is that that's only a fraction of what he actually made. I expect that what the Express News heard from attorneys practicing in Kazen's court is that Kazen's extensive side for-profit business of marrying people significantly held up court business as they all had too wait while Kazen was out marrying people on county time.

Kazan is a bastard of a bitch. He and Acevedo tried to run trial in a criminal court. The charges were;

1. Cruelty to animals: I left my dog in the car with the car running and the AC. No, cruelty here. as do all police officers.

2. Crank phone calls from my number by a house guest and I was never informed of the police complaint as is standard in Bexar. Kazan is a bastard of a bitch.

Former Judge Kazan is a piece of work.What is he doing now? He claimed to be an Oilman in open court proceedings after ex parte communications with Acevedo...his buddy.

Judge Salinas won! The state commission on judicial conduct would have kicked this short,incompetant Judge off the court.He is a stupid asshole. Leave a dog in car without the AC running and the dog will die. Leave the A on as do our law enforcement officials and that is NOT cruelty.

Crank phone calls. The SAPD homicide has to inform the phone owner of a police report on crank phone originating from there. Then they need three monitred phone to prove intent. It was never done. Former Judge Ocar Kazan in Acevedos pocket would let us apeak.

He is MORON and exihibits "Saddam like Chrarater." He claims to be an oilman and making a living off the backs of Tax paying Citizens of Bexar. He is a Moron.

He should be the next District Attorney in Bexar County. We intend to support him. He is a piece of work, a genuis and otherwise the most qualified man to be the next district attorney.

He is a genuis!

Ok, enough is enough. Look up. Look at when this was written. For the lazy ones out there reading this, it was written Monday Jan 30, 2006.

I stand by what I wrote. These are facts.

During the race, I openly supported Judge Kazen and had the courage to sign my name too.

For all of you anonymous San Antonio politicos, the race is over, and I have moved on in life, to a different site, and to a different town.

He (OScar Kazen a former Judge) is going before the Texas State Bar and the State Commision on Judical Conduct. We in San Antonio are fair and Balanced and so are a fore mentioned Entities. So,is the Media! There is a special comming up! All the proof is in court Records and already retrieved! Hope that doesn't change as that would be ANOTHER FELONY. Nobody is above the LAW.

He(Oscar Kazen)is in the Oil and gas business...as he claims. He was bullied in Laredo as a young man for being fat and short! He still is and he hates "Tall men" He and his buddy Acevedo will have to explain and justify "Exparte Communication....Illegal with Video
proof and Former Judge "Oscar Kazen's verbal outburts in open court towards a "True Blue Innocent defendant."....To the State bar and the state commissision on Judical conduct. The Lebonese marine from Ytah is in Jail for defecting. Even the food in his jury room sucked. He probably billed Bexar County a lot more.

He was a crook and is no longer a judge.

Amen
