*Incredible as in ‘not credible’
The blog Banker’s Anonymous is like a junkyard dog peskily tearing at SAISD Prez Ed Garza’s pant leg. A concerned SAISD parent and a “recovering banker,” BA has a knack for following the money. You may recall how he shed light on Garza’s hand picked Superintendent candidate’s questionable financial savvy and numerous (albeit minor) legal infractions earlier this year, assembling the information faster and in more detail than his major media counterparts. Would-be superintendent Manuel Isquierdo withdrew from consideration.
With Isquierdo out, BA appears curious that the man who vouched for him, Ed Garza, is still in. So he started digging.
The results, detailed on his fine finance blog Banker’s Anonymous, is a look into Garza’s several real estate deals. “I have to say, his track record on a number of real estate deals is incredible,” writes BA in a post highlighting some of the shadier findings, “By that I’m using the literal meaning of the word: Not credible.”
BA will be the first to say that much of his findings must be assumed to be mere coincidences until further proof is found (reporters, start your engines), and that nothing screams ‘illegal,’ but my, what coincidences they are. Among them:
Who knows? Luck happens, and when abetted by a keen financial knowledge, it can turn out quite lucrative. But with people like BA on his tail, Garza may find his luck is about to run out.
