  • 2012
    Age 61
    In May 2012, acrimony between Patrick and fellow Republican State Senator John Carona was widely reported throughout Texas.
    More Details Hide Details In an email exchange, Patrick accused Carona of spreading false rumors about Patrick's marriage; Carona denied that and additionally denied commenting on Patrick's sexuality. Carona further said to Patrick: "I've never been shy about sharing my dislike and distrust of you. Put bluntly, I believe you are a snake oil salesman, a narcissist that would say anything to draw attention to himself." News reports suggest that the feud is in part motivated by positioning to succeed David Dewhurst as Texas Lieutenant Governor, should Dewhurst win a seat as U.S. Senator. Patrick joined with restaurateur Edd Hendee and former local tax official Paul Bettencourt, both on-air hosts on Patrick's station, to form Citizens Lowering Our Unfair Taxes (CLOUT), a political organization that was originally formed to push for lower property taxes in Texas. Other political causes initiated by Patrick include a boycott of Bill Maher's television show Politically Incorrect over controversial statements made by the comedian following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Patrick is also frequently at odds with the Houston Chronicle and announced a boycott of that newspaper in April 2004.
