Houston area Medical Doctor Stephen Hotze has a storied past. He was sued by Harris County GOP leaders when he organized a campaign to take over the local Republican Party ousting mainline people. He was a huge player in area politics until he was accused of a DWI and slipped out of the public eye.
Stephen is a close ally to Rick Scarborough and worked with Rick earlier promoting the Viet War as a splendid idea. Hotze has written of his disgust that the Supreme Court has limited worship in public schools and he wanted to eliminate the welfare system, Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Reserve.
Hotze was listed as a member of the National Coordinating Council, a Religous Right group staffed with Reconstruction types like Joseph Morecraft and militia architect Larry Pratt.
Theocracy advocate Gary DeMar dedicated his book CHRISTIAN RECONSTRUCTION to Hotze. In the book DeMar claims the country is officially a Christian nation. DeMar also did not like what he calls "mob rule democracy". Religious Right leaders have historically sought to remind readers the nation is not a democracy but a republic. DeMar also wrote in the book about Jesus and His dominion expectations. "He has not as yet put His enemies under His feet." Dominion Press published the book.
According to author Robert Novak writing in the Houston Chronicle, Hotze hosted a rally
for Mike Huckabee in Houston; Rick Scarborough was also there on board. The former governor of Arkansas seems familiar with hard right elements.
