Ted Poe stories[edit]

I am interested if anyone has any more of his crazy courtroom stories that I heard so much about here in Houston. I shared the one currently on his page about the pennies, there have been so many stories that ive heard I just can't even seem to recall, they weren't all in a negative sense either like the penny one, one if the times I vaguely remember some details hearing about how he had asked a defendant to do something (in a riddlish kind of way) and supposedly the guy did it successfully and he got a reduced sentence... Anyway just a nice touch to add to his page, because much of the US hasn't had a feel for Ted Poe like us here in Houston.Species2112 05:56, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Why on Earth would we go digging up rumors and controversy, and then include them in a BLP solely to disparrage him? I'm sure that's against Wiki's BLP policies. 76.25.118.131 (talk) 06:58, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Also it was back in 2007, BLP wasn't as internalized. However, yeah, this isn't the place for rumors and this isn't a forum. WhisperToMe (talk) 02:03, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
