EL PASO - Two more people have been indicted in the ongoing public corruption investigation in El Paso.

New York businessman Joseph O'Hara, 62, and former EPISD Associate Superintendent Tomas Gabaldon, 55, are charged with fraud.

Federal prosecutors say O'Hara and another man bribed Gabaldon and an EPISD trustee to secure an EPISD contract.

Gabaldon turned himself in to the FBI in El Paso yesterday.

O'Hara surrendered to authorities in New York.

This is the eighth indictment in the FBI corruption probe which started in 2004.

7/15/2003 Howard DeLaCruz-Bancroft made a formal complaint to the EPISD board. 1. The amended RFP process was faulty: only certain vendors were sent the amended RFP; 2. The RFP appeared rigged to favor one vendor; 3. Thomas Gabaldon had a conflict of interest being an employee of Mecca Tech a participant in the process; The official board minutes were sanitized to avoid stating the real issues. I with Dan Wever and an Atty presented hundreds of pages of evidence to the FBI.

I'm sure this loser Gabaldon has fraudulently directed money from EPISD into his and other loser EPISD upper management pockets. His cell mates will have fun with him!!

How about the latest police beating that just took place, the man on the motorcycle. Not thing done. Internal affairs on the take????
