The League of Everyday Evil
In 1947, Bobby Bill Pong was arrested for lewd and disorderly conduct with a street lamp in Fred, Texas. His brother Billy Bob, friend of Deputy Sheriff Ricky “Red” Fatboil, came down to the jail to bail him out and in turn, was arrested himself on charges of aiding and abetting a criminal (namely his brother). The brothers swore that night that this town was an unfair place to live, where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and scandals were swept under the rug with a blink of an eye. With Billy’s one phone call, he called Deputy Fatboil. The next day they were released from jail and started working toward a way to run this town from the inside. Within weeks, They had gotten in contact with their older brother Eugene, who had the cash flow to start buying the town one election at a time and that is exactly what they did. Within a span of eleven years of forming the League of Everyday Evil, their influence had begun to spread past the Fred, Texas city limits, outward toward the sprawl of Hardin and Jefferson Counties. Today, L.E.E. has agents and operatives all over Southeast Texas, North Texas, and West Louisiana with controlling interests in media, government, propaganda, fruit, t-shirt, and souvenir sales. They work in secret, their influence is powerful, and their number is growing hourly.
The Fantastic Funk Freedom Federation (FFFF) was not so lucky. Started in 1965 at the first signs of the peace and civil rights movements, it was organized to give alternative voice to the hippies and beatniks that had found refuge in the cities of Port Arthur, Groves, and Port Neches. Having had a great many battles with the police and other authority figures, the group became a conservative anti-government stronghold. Their one weakness was influence over the current office holding powers. The organization splintered in the mid 70’s with a smaller sect infiltrating the “Loyal Order of the Kootie” out of Port Neches and a continuation of the Federation. Today, they are an underground Consultant and Investigative organization.
