Marler Believes A Hit Was Possibly Put Out on Him: Declined to Go Do Surveillance at an Abandoned Apartment Complex
Former FBI Agent Charles Marler had a tough last few days -- bless his soul. First, his window was busted out last week. Now he believes that Lance Gilliam (left), the partner of Licia Green Ellis (second from left) was trying to hire him to do undercover surveillance on what could have possibly been his last job. In case you don't know, Licia Green Ellis is the wife of Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis, and the president at Waterman Steele Real Estate Consulting Group. Please understand, that Lance Gilliam tried to hire Charles Marler to send him to do surveillance at an abandoned apartment complex, two days after Charles Marler announced that was officially investigating Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis, State Senator Borris Miles, Businessman Gerald Womack, Political Consultant Dallas Jones, and has a list that includes more than thirty individuals. Does it make sense that Lance Gilliam would call Charles Marler to do this job when there are hundreds of other private investigators he could have called?
Monday, September 28, 2020: Lance Gilliam the partner of Licia Green Ellis the wife of Harris County Precinct 1 Commissioner Rodney Ellis calls up former FBI Agent Charles Marler and tries to hire him to go and do surveillance on an abandoned apartment complex. The assignment would require Charles Marler to be at the abandoned apartment complex until the lights went out. What do you think was going to happen to Charles Marler after the lights when out in an abandoned apartment complex by himself?
Licia Green Ellis is one of the individuals who is now being investigated by former FBI Agent Charles Marler. So, why would her partner at Waterman Steele Real Estate Consulting Group, place a call to former FBI Agent Charles Marler and try to hire him to go out to an abandoned apartment complex to do surveillance when Charles Marler had just announced – two days prior, that he was investigating her husband, Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis?
Monday, September 28, 2020: Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis’ name was submitted before the Texas Supreme Court in a sworn affidavit by former FBI Agent Charles Marler (Case: 20-0739). A portion of the affidavit submitted by former FBI Agent Charles Marler along with the aforementioned case states, “During my investigation, a core group of names continued to surface regarding the organization and operation of the voter fraud scheme. Witnesses have stated to me that Precinct 1 Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis and District 13 Texas State Senator Borris Miles is leading the illegal ballot harvesting operation in Harris County, Texas. Their chief lieutenants are Houston businessman Gerald Womack and political consultant Dallas Jones who work directly under them in executing the ballot harvesting operation in Harris County, Texas.
Former FBI Agent Charles Marler also stated in his affidavit that, “Witnesses have shown me and described to me how the ballot harvesters take absentee ballots from the elderly in nursing homes, from the homeless, and from unsuspecting residences’ mailboxes. The ballot harvesters then complete the ballots for their preferred candidate and forge the signature of the “voter”. Two witnesses stated to me that there are two individuals employed at the Harris County Clerk’s Office who are aware of the illegal ballots and help facilitate and mask the processing of the ballots into the legal stream of ballots. Former FBI Agent Charles Marler went on to say, “I have been made aware of a law enforcement investigation in the Spring of 2020 regarding illegal ballot harvesting. Several interviews of individuals were conducted. After the interviews became public, former Harris County Clerk Diane Troutman (corrected to Trautman), resigned alleging health concerns due to COVID-19. However, witnesses have told me that Ms. Troutman (corrected to Trautman) was arguing with Commissioner Rodney Ellis about the legality of the mass purchasing and mailing of mail-in ballots and that Troutman (corrected to Trautman) was concerned she would be included in the eventual arrest pertaining to illegal ballot harvesting. Instead of coming forward and exposing the scheme, Ms. Troutman (corrected to Trautman) abruptly resigned. Witnesses have stated that Commissioner Ellis was not deterred and continued to move forward with the plan to mass mail ballots and expand the illegal ballot harvesting scam. Another witness stated to me that an employee of Commissioner Ellis, Tyler James has bragged that he could guarantee that the illegal ballot harvesting operation, with the help of mass mail-in ballots, could harvest 700,000 illegal ballots.
This guy, Lance Gilliam is the partner of Licia Green Ellis, the wife of Harris County Precinct 1 Commissioner Rodney Ellis. Two days after former FBI Agent Charles Marler announced that he was investigating Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis, this guy, Lance Gilliam, called up Charles Marler in an attempt to hire him to go and work a job that would involve Charles Marler doing surveillance at an abandoned apartment complex until the lights went out. What do you think was going to happen to Charles Marler after the lights went out at that abandoned apartment complex?
Charles Marler Believes That He Has Become a Target, But Says He Recognizes the Game

Can it get any crazier than this? What’s really going on in Harris County, Texas? Chuck Marler, a former FBI Agent, shortly after interviewing a person last week -- where the primary topic of discussion was State Senator Borris Miles, went to dinner a few hours later and came out to discover his window smashed. According to Charles Marler, there was cash in the console, that was not taken, and his handgun in the glove box – that was not taken either. What was taken? Well, according to Marler, his laptop bag that was on the rear passenger side beneath the floormat was stolen – and the floormat was neatly placed back into its original position. Fortunately for Marler, his laptop was not inside of the laptop bag that was stolen from his vehicle – only files from a few criminal investigations that he’s working on – that’s not related to his ongoing investigation into the “ABSENTEE BALLOT HARVESTING RING” that he believes is headed up State Senator Borris Miles, Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis and two people whom he believes are underbosses -- Political Consultant Dallas Jones, and Businessman Gerald Womack. But that was last week!
On yesterday, Monday, September 28, 2020, Chuck Marler, received a call from Lance Gilliam. The first part of the phone conversation was really hard to hear because Charles Marler was inside of a local restaurant. The portion of the phone call between Lance Gilliam and Charles Marler posted above was recorded once Charles Marler, the former FBI Agent had made it back to his vehicle. In case you don’t know him, Lance Gilliam is a partner at the Waterman Steele Real Estate Consulting Group. He’s also the former Chairman of the Houston Housing Authority. I’ll bet you can’t guess who the president of the Waterman Steele Real Estate Consulting Group happens to be. Can you? Do you know? Huh? Well? Okay, I’ll tell you. The president of the Waterman Steele Real Estate Consultant Group is none other than, Licia Green Ellis, the wife of Harris County Precinct 1 Commissioner Rodney Ellis. Now ask yourself, “With all the private investigation firms in Houston, Texas, why would Lance Gilliam call up Charles Marler, to hire him for an investigations job?” Doesn’t that sound a little strange to you? Especially since, two days prior, Charles Marler announced that he’s investigating Commissioner Rodney Ellis, the husband of Licia Green Ellis, who happens to be Gilliam’s partner at Water Steele Real Estate Consulting group. “I have no doubt in my mind that Lance was up to something no good,” says Charles Marler. “That’s why I called him back and declined his invitation to go and do surveillance on a vacant apartment location with only one tenant,” explains Marler. Now listen, check out Lance Gilliam’s response when Chuck asked him about Rodney Ellis – he laughs! Was Lance Gilliam trying to set Charles Marler up? According to Charles Marler, he sure thinks so!

Charles Marler, a former FBI Agent says that he and his team are updating Attorney General Ken Paxton on what they believe is an Organized Voter Fraud Ring operating in Harris County, Texas. According to Marler, he believes that the Organized Voter Fraud Ring in Harris County, Texas has an organizational setup that involves State Senator Borris Miles and Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis at the top followed under them by local Political Consultant, Dallas Jones, and businessman Gerald Womack. The information Charles Marler is going on is based on direct witness interviews that he's conducted. According to Marler, his list of underbosses includes over 30 names at this point in his investigation – including the current City of Houston Councilwoman Martha Castex Tatum who won a Tuesday, May 5, 2018, Special Election against eight opponents without a runoff. In the race in question, Councilwoman Castex Tatum in a political campaign to fill the vacancy left by the untimely death of the late Councilman Larry Green, received more “ABSENTEE BALLOT VOTES” than all of her opponents combined. In case you don't remember, her campaign was managed by Dallas Jones, the political consultant who is now running the Texas operation for 2020 Democratic Presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden. This is significant because earlier this week, the Gregg County, Commissioner Shannon Brown, 49, a Democrat, Charlie Burns, 84, DeWayne Ward, 58, and Marlena Jackson 50, were all arrested and are now facing very serious charges. In case you haven’t heard, Attorney General Ken Paxton has leveled charges against this foursome, accusing them of engaging in organized election fraud, illegal voting, fraudulent use of an application for a mail-in ballot, unlawful possession of a mail-in ballot, tampering with a governmental record, and election fraud. All total, the penalties for these offenses range from six months in state jail to 99 years in prison. A total of 134 felony counts were handed down.
Former FBI Agent, Charles Marler Believes the Organizational Structure in Harris County, Texas Includes Womack, Ellis, Miles, and Jones
AUBREY R. TAYLOR REPORTS©
Back in 2018, there were only 67,628 registered voters in Gregg County – where the arrests took place earlier this week. Comparatively speaking, back in 2018, Harris County had 2,307,654 registered voters. So, while the 134 felony charges filed against Gregg County Commissioner for Precinct 4, Shannon Brown, 49, a Democrat, and his three other co-conspirators, Charlie Burns, 84, DeWayne Ward, 58, and Marlena Jackson 50, sounds like a lot – it pales in comparison to the number of indictments that could be handed down in a county the size of Harris County, Texas. The folks over in Gregg County, after a two-year investigation are accused of engaging in organized election fraud, illegal voting, fraudulent use of an application for a mail-in ballot, unlawful possession of a mail-in ballot, tampering with a governmental record, and election fraud. All total, the penalties for these offenses range from six months in state jail to 99 years in prison. Does this sound familiar? Please take a moment to visit the Texas Trash Talk website, if you haven’t done so already. And please don’t forget that the 2-year investigation into “ABSENTEE BALLOT HARVESTING” in Harris County, Texas that was conducted by Colleen M. Vera, was happening at the same time that the folks over in Gregg County were being investigated. Now, according to former FBI Agent, Charles Marler, he says, “Every illegal ballot that the Harris County ring has fraudulently submitted during past election cycles is a felony. And from what I’ve gathered so far, I believe the ring here was engaged in possibly 40 thousand illegal votes on the low end, in the past and now they foolishly think they can quadruple that number in the coming weeks in the upcoming Tuesday, November 3, 2020, general election,” he went on to say. According to Marler, almost every witness he’s spoken to so far has provided information that connects the dots to what he believes is the organizational structure of the Harris County Ring. According to former FBI Agent Charles Marler, “It involves Borris Miles and Rodney Ellis at the top followed under them by Dallas Jones and Gerald Womack.” Who is Charles Marler? Well, he has participated in joint training operations with the DIA, DEA, JCTA, and CIA. He’s also managed several FLIR System Operators while coordinating one of the FBI’s prominent FLIR programs – according to his website. He provided case guidance and became an expert in the operation and maintenance of FLIR equipment and has personally trained or provided training for his operators. Under his leadership and guidance, the FLIR program conducted numerous successful operations against espionage subjects, suspected terrorism subjects, drug shipments, violent crime, and kidnap searches. “No doubt about it, what we’re looking at here in Harris County is BIG! I am certain that there’s a criminal enterprise at work in Harris County, that must be uprooted and dismantled,” he says.

Arrests in Gregg County is Child’s Play Compared to What’s Going to Happen in Harris County, Texas According to Former FBI Agent
AUBREY R. TAYLOR REPORTS©
Straight out of the gate, I am just the reporter! Got that? Please do not call me talking smack. All crooked politicians and their cronies who don’t like this report should harass Attorney General Ken Paxton or Charles Marler – the former FBI Agent who is working his azz off to tie together what he believes is the organizational structure of the alleged criminal enterprise that's working out of Harris County, Texas. And those are not my words, they’re the words of Charles Marler. On yesterday, Friday, September 25, 2020, I received an email from Charles Marler updating me on a few things that I would like to share. But before I go there, I think some of the folks that have taken it upon themselves to continue to question and try to intimidate me are a little confused. Look, the people you need to be concerned about is Attorney General Ken Paxton, and Charles Marler, who worked for the FBI for 16 years learning all facets of the Bureau’s complex operations from evidence collection, radio communications, aviation surveillance, and Forward-Looking Infra-Red (FLIR). This guy Charles Marler was an Investigative Specialist for 12 years as a member of the Special Surveillance Group and conducted, organized, and completed thousands of surveillances on Drug (as FLIR operator), Intelligence, and Terrorism targets. In case you don’t know, he also participated in joint training operations with the DIA, DEA, JCTA, and CIA. So, rather than having your cronies calling me, what you guys should be doing is lawyering up.
Back on May 5, 2018, Councilwoman Martha Castex Tatum won a special election that was managed by Political Consultant Dallas Jones, which raises all sorts of red-flags according to former FBI Agent Charles Marler. "Her victory over her eight opponents back in 2018 is suspect," says former Marler.
Contents from the Emailed Statement Charles Marler Sent to Aubrey R. Taylor on Friday, September 25, 2020
“I'm sure you've recently seen the arrest made in Gregg County of a County Commissioner and several other officials,” said Charles Marler. “They were arrested for Organized Voter Fraud and indicted on 134 counts. The Texas Attorney General's Office investigated the fraud that occurred in 2018,” he said. “I am aware that the Attorney General's Office is also investigating the low hanging fruit of the fraud involved in the Harold Dutton race from 2018,” he went on to say. “We are also updating Texas Attorney General Paxton on our ongoing investigation into the Organized Voter Fraud Ring in Harris County. We have had several witnesses come forward since we last spoke,” said Marler. “They have informed us of crimes committed by Gerald Womack, Dallas Jones, and Borris Miles,” he said naming the names of a few people who he believes are ring-leaders in what’s going down in Harris County, Texas. “Almost every witness connects the dots to the organizational structure of the Ring,” he stated. “It involves Borris Miles and Rodney Ellis at the top followed under them by Dallas Jones and Gerald Womack,” according to Charles Marler, the former FBI Agent. “Another 2018 race that they alerted us to is the Special Election for Houston City Council District K which took place after the passing of Council Member Larry Green,” he stated. “The information we were provided with entails the alleged illegal ballot harvesting conducted by Dallas Jones for (candidate and now) council member Martha Castex-Tatum,” stated Charles Marler in the email alluding to the Tuesday, May 5, 2018, Special Election to fill the vacancy left by the untimely death of Councilman Larry Green. As a refresher, in the aforementioned race, Council Member Martha Castex Tatum received more “ABSENTEE BALLOTS VOTES” than all of the other candidates in the race combined. She received, 901, “ABSENTEE BALLOTS,” while her eight opponents only received a combined total of, 810 “ABSENTEE BALLOTS,” as a group. In case you don’t remember, Larry Blackmon received, 152 absentee ballots; Patricia “Pat” Frazier received 344 absentee ballots; Gerry Vander-Lyn received 75 absentee ballots; Lawrence J. McGaffie received 42 absentee ballots; Carl David Evans received 66 absentee ballots; Elizabeth E. Johnson received 70 absentee ballots; Anthony Freddie received 21 absentee ballots, and Aisha Savoy received 40 absentee ballots according to the Harris County Clerk’s Office. Now, if for some reason, you weren’t following this race, Martha Castex Tatum’s campaign, that was managed by Dallas Jones, the founder, and CEO of Elite Change, Inc. received more “ABSENTEE BALLOTS VOTES” than either of the other candidates in the race received in total votes back on March 5, 2018, in the Special Election race for Houston City Council District K – which left a lot of folks scratching their heads in disbelief. And as a side note, she did it without a runoff. For the record, Martha Castex Tatum received 3,315 votes, for 65.08% of the vote. The second-place finisher, Patricia “Pat” Frazier (now deceased) only received 720 votes, for 14.13% of the vote. The third-place finisher, Larry Blackmon only received 345 votes, for 6.77% of the vote. The fourth-place finisher, Gerry Vander-Lyn only received 262 votes, for 5.14% of the vote. The fifth-place finisher, Carl David Evans only received 159 votes, for 3.12% of the vote. The sixth-place finisher, Elizabeth E. Johnson only received 99 votes, for 1.94% of the vote. The seventh-place finisher, Lawrence J. McGaffie only received 69 votes, for 1.35% of the vote. The eighth-place finisher, Anthony Freddie only received 64 votes, for 1.26% of the vote. And the ninth-place finisher Aisha Savoy only received 61 votes, for 1.20% of the vote. According to Charles Marler, several things bother him about the outcome of the Special Election for Houston City Council District K, which took place back on Tuesday, May 5, 2018. “The illegal ballot harvesting in this 2018 race appears to be another instance of low hanging fruit,” he says. “I’ve been given several names of people who impacted the lopsided absentee mail-ballot returns at what we believe (at this point) to be the direction of Dallas Jones,” says Charles Marler.
CHARLES MARLER: “On a side note, I know that I’m over the target when someone mysteriously breaks the window of my vehicle to steal my laptop bag hidden under my backseat floor mat. The robber did not rifle through the front console of my vehicle which had cash inside, they only targeted the bag. Unfortunately for the robbers, I didn't have my laptop in the bag -- only personal items and unrelated criminal casework. These Organized Criminals will not stop my investigation! The criminals should instead be reflecting on the Gregg County case. Every illegal ballot that they are involved in is a felony. I understand the ring here was engaged in possibly 40 thousand illegal votes in the past and they foolishly think they will quadruple that in the coming weeks."
AG Paxton Announces Joint Prosecution of Gregg County; Organized Election Fraud in Mail-In Balloting Scheme
AUSTIN – Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that authorities arrested Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown, Marlena Jackson, Charlie Burns, and DeWayne Ward on charges in connection with an organized vote harvesting scheme during the 2018 Democratic primary election. To increase the pool of ballots needed to swing the race in Brown’s favor, the group targeted young, able-bodied voters to cast ballots by mail by fraudulently claiming the voters were “disabled,” in most cases without the voters’ knowledge or consent. Under Texas election law, mail ballots based on disability are specifically reserved for those who are physically ill and cannot vote in-person as a result.
In total, the state filed 134 felony charges against the four defendants, including engaging in organized election fraud, illegal voting, fraudulent use of an application for a mail-in ballot, unlawful possession of a mail-in ballot, tampering with a governmental record, and election fraud. Penalties for these offenses range from six months in state jail to 99 years in prison.
“It is an unfortunate reality that elections can be stolen outright by mail ballot fraud. Election fraud, particularly an organized mail ballot fraud scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in voter disenfranchisement and corruption at the highest level,” said Attorney General Paxton. “Mail ballots are vulnerable to diversion, coercion, and influence by organized vote harvesting schemes. This case demonstrates my commitment to ensuring Texas has the most secure elections in the country, and I thank the Gregg County Sheriff and District Attorney for their continued partnership. Those who try to manipulate the outcome of elections in Texas must be held accountable.”
A grand jury returned indictments on 23 felony counts against Commissioner Brown, 97 felony counts against Marlena Jackson, eight felony counts against Charlie Burns, and six felony counts against DeWayne Ward. The Office of the Attorney General was assisted by the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office during the investigation. The Texas Attorney General will prosecute this case alongside the Gregg County District Attorney.
