Stockman slams Chronicle smear attempt
 WASHINGTON Congressman Steve Stockman released the following statement .The Houston Chronicle will run an ambush story that will misrepresent a recent error madeby staffers and make personal attacks against me.Two weeks ago I found out two staffers in my congressional office made contributions not allowedunder FEC rules. As soon as I found out the contributions were refunded and corrective actiontaken.We obeyed the law. That’s the story. Or more correctly, the lack of a story. That is why the Chronicle will try to fluff it up by making other unrelated and unfounded attacks tocreate controversy where none exists.The reason is simple. The Houston Chronicle has employed Tim Fleck to its editorial board. Fleck a left-wing activist who previously wrote for the liberal Houston Press. Fleck has beenobsessed with me since June 1996, when he forced his way into my home and verbally abusedcampaign volunteers until sheriff’s deputies were called.He has since sued me unsuccessfully, and apparently cannot let it go.Fleck once picked up a coral snake and was surprised when it bit him and he had to go to thehospital, so he’s not the kind who learns quickly. He has written obsessively about me for 17 years and is now using his position at the Chronicle tocontinue his obsession by having four different reporters follow my staff and me, even watching meas I take out my household trash.One of the reasons Americans are abandoning newspapers in droves is the fact they now try to put journalistic lipstick on a partisan-slanted pig. The Chronicle’s hiring of Fleck and the upcomingpersonal attack are why growing numbers of Houstonians don't believe what they read in thepaper. -30-FridaySunday
