How do you know when Sanchez is lying?
Glenn Smith's lips are moving.
Consider the following from the article below.
1) LIE - It is a coincidence that Jorge Haynes has found a job in Califiornia after running interference for Sanchez on the contributions. I wonder who is on the list of campaign recepients?
2) I wonder how much the penalties will be. Will the Republican AG go after Sanchez? Will he then go ahead and get him for lying on his U T Regents appointment application? Will he go ahead and look into all those IBOC drug money deposits? Will he question Tony Canales the corporate counsel? Will he look into all those Enron stock sales?
I HAVE SAID IT BEFORE. I WILL REPEAT IT. TONY SANCHEZ IS GOING TO JAIL, NOT TO THE GOVERNOR'S MANSION. HE WAS AN IDIOT TO THINK NO ONE WOULD DIG INTO HIS CORRUPTION. STUPID. TONY IS GOING TO BRING A LOT OF HIS CORRUPT BUDDIES INTO THE LIGHT WITH THESE INVESTIGATIONS. PEOPLE WHO DO NOT LIKE TO BE EXPOSED. THEY TOLD TONY NOT TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR. HE WAS WARNED. BETTER CHECK EVERYONE'S SHOES BEFORE YOU FLY ON YOUR PLANE TONY.
3) Will George Bush keep the Feds off his old buddy Tony Sanchez?
4) Tony's 30% of IBOC is worth about $2 billion. $1.5 is in mom's trust and Tony will not reveal those trust tax returns because of all that Enron stock they sold through the trust.
5) LIE - Sanchez did not know where the campaign contributions were going.
6) LIE - It was just a coincidence that Tony and the PAC made similar contributions on the same day.
The press enjoyed getting rid of Marty Akins and his LBJ and civil rights lies. Now they have the mother load of lies with Tony Sanchez. Lies about Henry Cuellar. Lies about his U T appointment. Lies about Tesoro. Lies about the PAC contributions. Lies about financing his own campaign. And the unopened boxes of lies in his unproduced supporting schedules from his income tax returns, lies in his mother's trust tax return, lies about IBOC deposits and depositors, lies about using illegal drugs, lies about hiring illegal aliens, lies about buying off Scripps Howard, lies about his father's businesses, lies about Morris Jaffe, lies about his Mafia connections, lies about drilling in the state parks especially at the Falcon Reservior where the Mexicans did not drill from their side of the reservoir, likes about money in the Bahamas, Spain, Switzerland, Mexico. And everyone of these lies are just the hub of an infinite maze of endless lies.
TONY SANCHEZ WILL GO TO JAIL. TONY SANCHEZ IS FINISHED.
The press has just begun its feeding frenzie. And don't think Ranger Rick and his Republican buddies are going to sit idly by. They are going to chum the waters. Remember how Phil Gramm ruthelessly slammed old Tony to the mat 2 hours after he announced his candidacy? A lot of people want Tony's blood. The U T regents won't talk to him. They all know he is corrupt. Everyone in Austin knows he's corrupt. The Republicans want some of his turncoat behind.
BYE BYE TONY. AND BY THE WAY, DON'T CALL ME ASKING FOR A PARDON. YOU NEED TO ASK RICK FOR THAT. HE CAN BE BOUGHT. BUT YOU KNOW THAT DON'T YOU?

Official quits bank position
He failed to file fiscal reports, will work for Sanchez
By GEORGE KUEMPEL / The Dallas Morning News
AUSTIN – A banker who took blame for failing to make legally required reports involving more than $100,000 in political contributions by a Laredo bank controlled by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Sanchez is leaving the institution.
Jorge Haynes, 54, senior vice president for public relations for the International Bank of Commerce, is joining Mr. Sanchez's campaign as South Texas coordinator on Jan. 1 and will leave for an unrelated job in California later next year.
He said Thursday that his failure to report the contributions in 2000 and 2001 to the Texas Ethics Commission and the Federal Election Commission was in no way related to his departure from the bank.
"No, it has a lot to do with my family and the fact that last August I went down to interview in California and went back for a second interview in October ... and they've offered me a job," he said.
Mr. Haynes declined to say where in California he would work; he said his new employer would make the announcement shortly.
Glenn Smith, Mr. Sanchez's campaign manager, said Mr. Haynes will work for the California State University System in Long Beach after he leaves the campaign next year.
"He has wanted forever to get that job in California, and he got it."
Mr. Smith also said that Mr. Haynes' failure to report the contributions had nothing to do with his departure from the bank.
"None of this is related to the PAC [political action committee] filings issue. There is no connection," he said.
Mr. Haynes took full responsibility for the bank's failure to report the contributions after The Dallas Morning News discovered the omissions last month.
"There's no excuse," he told the newspaper. "It wasn't a secretary. It wasn't IBC Chairman Dennis Nixon. It wasn't Tony Sanchez. I didn't take care of it."
The state and federal agencies both repeatedly contacted the bank in 2000 and 2001 about the delinquent reports. Failure to file the reports carries potential civil penalties ranging from several hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on the circumstances, regulators said.
The Texas Ethics Commission has turned the case over to the attorney general's office, and the Federal Election Commission in Washington is reviewing the delinquent filings to determine whether fines should be imposed.
Mr. Sanchez, who is making his first race for elected statewide office, owns about 30 percent of IBC's stock, along with his family.
A campaign spokeswoman sought to put distance between Mr. Sanchez and the delinquent reports last month by noting that he is not a member of the committee that decides which candidates to support and doesn't supervise the day-to-day administration of the bank's political action committee.
The PAC contributed more than $100,000 to federal and state candidates over the last two years, according to an accounting by the bank, and gave $100,000 to the Republican National Committee last year as the party prepared to defend George W. Bush's disputed presidential election.
It is funded by bank employees and members of the board of directors, including Mr. Sanchez, and is administered by a committee of company executives.
Recipients of the firm's PAC contributions included Mr. Bush, whose presidential campaign received $5,000; and Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and then-Lt. Gov. Rick Perry, who each got $500.
Mr. Sanchez seeks to challenge Mr. Perry for governor.
In its review of campaign records, The News found a pattern in which Mr. Sanchez and the PAC made similar contributions on the same date to the same politician.
The campaign called the timing a coincidence.
