Newly Released Audio-Recording May Explain Why So Many Local Democrats and Other Leaders Fear State Senator Borris L. Miles

In the newly released audio-recording below Former HPD Captain Mark Aguirre (far left) explained to "WHISTLEBLOWER" and Democratic Political Consultant Damien Thaddeus Jones (far right) that he was trying to collect enough evidence to get local law-breakers brought to justice. State Senator Borris L. Miles (above center) is one of the local Democratic elected officials who Former HPD Captain Mark Aguirre had is sights set on. As you will hear him say in the audio-recording at about the 3:00 minute mark -- Former HPD Captain Mark Aguirre believed that he was dealing with a criminal enterprise that rose to the level of the RICO ACT STATUTE. So, for all of you who don't know what that means, it stands for, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Law. And yes, it applies to corrupt political organizations too! In case you don't know, RICO according to published reports, allows for prosecution of all individuals involved in a corrupt organization. In the case of mob prosecutions, this means that the government can go after top leadership as well as the hit men and capos. RICO, in case you don't already know was originally aimed at the Mafia, but since then, prosecutors have used the RICO ACT STATUTE to attack many forms of organized crime: street gangs, gang cartels, corrupt police departments and yes, even politicians. That's why you've been hearing so much talk about State Senator Borris L. Miles, Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis, Democratic Political Consultant Dallas Jones, and local Businessman Gerald Womack. Listen, I am not pretending to be a lawyer, or anything like that; but when you hear a guy like Dr. Steven Hotze start talking about the so-called "HARRIS COUNTY ELECTION TASK FORCE" being corrupt -- you had better believe that he's holding some cards that could cause a whole bunch of local elected officials some serious problems -- I'm just saying. So, that being said, there's a whole host of folks who are running around town trying to do "DAMAGE CONTROL" who need to be either lawyering up, or shutting up!!!

A Real Life ‘Wannabe Gangsta’ is Masquerading around Harris County as a Democratically Elected State Senator 


Some days it seems like this Borris L. Miles a “WANNABE GANGSTA DUDE” is actually running a few things in Democratic cycles throughout Harris County, Texas. Yes, it certainly seems like he and his crew of fellow “CROOKED POLITIICANS” has Harris County, Texas on lockdown. Yes, they appear to be unbeatable – untouchable – and yes, even above the law! But every dog has his day – as the saying goes. Heck, for the life of me, I cannot even understand why people are afraid of this cat. I mean, he and his crew pretty much only muscle and push around people who they already know fear them. Hell, anyone from the streets can look into the eyes of these “WANNABE GANGSTAS” and clearly see that they’re not tough – not in the least bit. What Borris and his crew are doing – if you ask me – is using the power of elected office to carve out territory for themselves and others who are a part of their little crime families – similar to the way that gang members carve up turf for themselves. How? Well, by occupying all of the available elected positions allotted to them, throughout Harris County, Texas these “WANNABE GANGSTAS” are able to also control who gets major contracting deals with the City of Houston and Harris County – but not only that!!! Through fear tactics and an assortment of other strategies these “WANNABE GANGSTAS” are able to gain unfair advantages over pretty much anyone who dares to oppose them. Yep, they’ve got the game on lock!!! That was until Democratic Political Consultant Damien Thaddeus Jones popped on the scene!

In the audio-recording above, “WHISTLEBLOWER” Damien Thaddeus Jones recounts an incident where he says, Borris L. Miles a “WANNABE GANGSTA” pulled a gun on his friend who allegedly went to talk to Miles about why he had been fired. In the audio-recording above, according to “WHISTLEBLOWER” Damien Thaddeus Jones, his friend who he attended Texas Southern University with now lives in New Orleans and is afraid of State Senator Borris L. Miles. Is this “WANNABE GANGSTA” the kind of elected official who we want mentoring our young people? 

The federal Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) law was passed in 1970 as the "ultimate hit man" in mob prosecutions. Prior to RICO, prosecutors could only try mob-related crimes individually. Since different mobsters perpetrated each crime, the government could only prosecute individual criminals instead of shutting down an entire criminal organization. Today, the government rarely uses RICO against the Mafia. Instead, because the law is so broad, both governmental and civil parties use it against all sorts of enterprises, both legal and illegal.

RICO allows for prosecution of all individuals involved in a corrupt organization. For mob prosecutions, that means that the government can go after top leadership as well as the hit men and capos. And RICO established much enhanced sentences, as well. John L. Smith described the impact of RICO in an article for the Las Vegas Review-Journal: "After RICO, mob families began to crack under the very real threat that members and associates could be indicted en masse for a wide range of criminal activity. ... [E]ven the strongest stand-up guy would have trouble fading the 20-year (and more) sentences that began accompanying RICO convictions."

While RICO was originally aimed at the Mafia, over the past 37 years, prosecutors have used it to attack many forms of organized crime: street gangs, gang cartels, corrupt police departments and even politicians.

To violate RICO, a person must engage in a pattern of racketeering activity connected to an enterprise. The law defines 35 offenses as constituting racketeering, including gambling, murder, kidnapping, arson, drug dealing, bribery. Significantly, mail and wire fraud are included on the list. These crimes are known as "predicate" offenses. To charge under RICO, at least two predicate crimes within 10 years must have been committed through the enterprise.

Note that an enterprise is required. This might be a crime family, a street gang or a drug cartel. But it may also be a corporation, a political party, or a managed care company. The enterprise just has to be a discrete entity; but an enterprise is not the same as an individual. Thus, a corporation may be the enterprise through which individuals commit crimes, but it can't be both an individual and the enterprise.

The criminal RICO statute provides for prison terms of 20 years and severe financial penalties. The law also allows prosecutors to attach assets, so they can't be whisked out of the country before judgment.

Even though RICO threatens very long prison terms for racketeers, the law's real power is its civil component. Anyone can bring a civil suit if they've been injured by a RICO violation, and if they win, receive treble damages. In the 1980s, civil lawyers attempted to fit many different claims inside of RICO, but in the 1990s the federal courts set up a number of hurdles for civil RICO claims. To succeed on a RICO claim, a plaintiff must show:

Criminal Activity. You must show that the defendant committed one of the enumerated RICO crimes, which include the broad crimes of mail and wire fraud. If you bring a claim on a fraud basis, however, the court will apply strict scrutiny.

Pattern of Criminal Activity. One crime is not enough. You have to show a pattern of at least two crimes. A pattern requires the crimes be related in some way—same victim, same methods, same participants—or continuous, meaning it was conducted over at least a year.
Within the Statute of Limitations. The Supreme Court held that RICO has a four-year statute of limitations, which begins tolling from the time the victim discovers his or her damages.

RICO is powerful and complex. If you think you've been seriously injured by criminal activity that is covered by RICO, consult with a lawyer to see if you have a case. But make sure it's worth the effort. RICO civil suits can be very costly.


I’m sure that you’ve heard the term, “you can indict a ham sandwich” before – right? Well, it’s correct – especially right here in Harris County, Texas. And hell, for that matter, I wouldn’t place too much emphasis people whom you see others try to label as “CONVICTED FELONS” in Harris County, Texas either. Why? Well, I can tell you a story or two, about the inner-workings of Harris County’s criminal justice system, and political system. Have you ever taken a moment to look at all of the people who have been wrongfully convicted of crimes? But that's a story for another day!


Now, I wouldn’t encourage any of you guys to try to play “WANNABE GANGSTA” Borris L. Miles too close – because he isn’t afraid to use his gun. But don’t take my word for it, just ask that Pasadena man who was shot and wounded back in 2007 by Miles at his Third Ward home – while it was still under construction. That guy’s name was Bruce Anthony Toler. And he was charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon – along with getting shot by Miles.


Back in April 2008, this Borris L. Miles “WANNABE GANGSTA DUDE” was indicted on not one – but two counts of deadly conduct. In case for some reason you don’t remember, the first charge came after he was accused of pulling a gun on a Texas Southern University regent and his wife during a Houston Rockets basketball game. Does that sound familiar? Remember, “WHISTLEBLOWER” Damien Thaddeus Jones alleges in the audio-recording above that Miles did the same exact thing to one of his friends.


In his own mind, this Borris L. Miles “WANNABE GANGSTA DUDE” thinks he’s above the law. Heck, and rightfully so – nobody has been able to make anything stick against this dude. The second deadly conduct charge against Miles involved a man (who I’m not going to name) who pressed charges against this “WANNABE GANGSTER DUDE” after he allegedly crashed a party at a Houston-area hotel, and forcibly kissed a woman, and then threatened a local businessman – all while brandishing a weapon. And according to published reports about this particular incident, this “WANNABE GANSTA” allegedly told the man "You don't know what I'm capable of doing." 


How in the heck did he get off? Well, your guess is as good as mine. Anyways, back in a January of 2009 “WANNBE GANGSTA” Borris L. Miles was acquitted on both deadly conduct charges.


In case you don’t remember, back in December of 2017, The Daily Beast published a very interesting article about “WANNABE GANGSTA” Borris L. Miles. The aforementioned article contained numerous sexual harassment allegations against Miles. And that being said, after the publication of the article, Democratic State Senator Sylvia Garcia (now Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia) called for an investigation into the allegations.

‘Bitch, you want to fuck with me tonight?’ is how a legislative intern says that Borris L. Miles addressed her back in May of 2013 when he was a member of the Texas House of Representatives. 


Lauren*, a Texas legislative intern, was standing underneath the bright blue-and-red neon sign of The Continental Club, a famed Austin bar frequented by schmoozing politicians, lobbyists, and reporters.

That week in May 2013 was filled to the brim with end-of-session (“sine die”) parties, and Lauren was with a group of other interns on South Congress when Democratic state Rep. Borris Miles pulled up.

According to Lauren, Miles leaned out of the carriage he was riding in and pulled out a large roll of money. He handed “maybe $500” to an intern and then looked at Lauren.

“You know how you have the roll of hundreds that you see on TV? It was like that,” Lauren told The Daily Beast.

“I said, ‘Hi Representative, how are you?’ Then he slowly looked me up and down, counted out more money, reached out his hand and said, ‘Bitch, you want to fuck with me tonight?’

“I said ‘No, thank you’ and physically stepped back,” Lauren recalled. “I didn’t want to be rude to him. I remember his intern pacifying him and saying, ‘It’s time to go.’

“Everyone was just shocked that he said that—that he cussed at me and that he was offering me money. It was outrageous,” she continued. “I just remember thinking, ‘I need to go, and I need to not be here anymore.’”

Chris*, a Democratic state representative who asked not to be named out of fear for his personal safety, confirmed Lauren’s contemporaneous account of her story to The Daily Beast. (Chris is in the same party as Miles, represents a district geographically removed from Miles’ district, works in a different chamber, and has never run against him.)

“At some point that night, I got a call or text message from [Lauren],” he recalled. “She said Borris Miles was at The Continental Club and that he had propositioned her. I didn’t quite understand the whole scenario until later, but I knew that she was not comfortable and [she] was not good.”


Well, the time has come to launch a strategic effort to start thinking about the 2022 Midterm Election. In case you don’t know, in 2022, the Harris County Democratic Party will field the largest contingent of African American candidates in the history of their party. That being said, it is incumbent all of us to make sure that the “BEST-QUALIFIED CANDIDATES” who value us are elected/re-elected. And to accomplish this task, my team and I promise to do our very best to help you identify “GOOD DEMOCRATS” and “GOOD REPUBLICANS” who are qualified and concerned about the issues that are important to us. 


In case you don’t already know, on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, candidates who plan to run for office in 2022 can start signing up. The deadline to sign up for a place on the 2022 Midterm Election ballot is Monday, December 13, 2021 at 6:00 PM for Democrats and Republicans. The early voting period for the 2022 Midterm Election will begin on Monday, February 14, 2022, and end on Friday, February 25, 2022. And the 2022 Democratic and Republican primaries will take place on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, in Harris County, Texas.

I’m the President/CEO of Aubrey R. Taylor Communications, the publisher of Houston Business Connections Newspaper©. In case you don’t know, I have 30-years of experience in marketing, branding, investigative reporting, public relations, opposition research, and political consulting. I’ve assisted in branding Republican and Democratic candidates in statewide elections and local municipalities throughout the State of Texas. Over the years, I’ve also assisted in branding and marketing (through my various publications) such corporations and institutions as Shell Oil, The City of Houston, Texas A&M University, Texas Southern University, Prairie View A&M University, Chevron, Waste Management, Nationwide Insurance, Momentum Jaguar/BMW, Channel 11, Channel 13, State Farm Insurance, and Allstate Insurance to name a few. 


I would have you to know that not everyone who has been accused of a crime or enters a guilty plea in connection with a crime is guilty of the crime they're accused of committing. Neither is everyone who goes to trial to fight charges that are leveled against them and get's convicted are guilty. Look, over the years, some very bad things have happened to people of color in our criminal justice system. So to this end, please understand, that during my career, I’ve gone into the Harris County Jail and Texas prisons on numerous occasions (on secret assignments) working in conjunction with the owner of one of the largest locally owned private security, and investigations firms. The man who was funding my investigations back then (who mysteriously died) also was the godfather of one of my sons, and the backer of one of my publications. That being said, I can straight-faced assure you that I’ve seen some of the injustices that are occurring in the Texas penal system up close and personal. While on the inside, I interviewed (face-to-face) some of the hardest criminals you can imagine for my research. I also discovered first-hand that many of the people who should be locked up are walking around free, and not all of those who are locked behind bars are guilty of the crimes that they, in some cases pleaded guilty to – for whatever reason. So, let me assure you that I know a criminal when I see one. And we have a handful of local elected officials who are straight-criminals and must be stopped!!!


Based on my direct observations over the years, I can attest to the fact that our current criminal justice system is more about “HAVE’S AND HAVE NOT’S” to a greater degree than most people realize.  That being said, sure, in some cases, the skin color of the person being accused of a crime plays a role in who gets indicted and eventually convicted of crimes and those who go free. However, at the end of the day, from observing the system from the inside, and out; having money, good legal representation and access to influential people are unfortunately key determining factors when it comes to who will spend the rest of their life walking around with an “X” on their back and who doesn’t. So, to this end, we must endeavor to change our criminal justice system and political landscape by “TAKING POLITICS OUT” of the way our judges are selected in the Lone Star State – that’s very important to me! Have you ever taken a moment to look at all of the people who have been wrongfully convicted of crimes?
