Former Houston politico Ben Reyes was released from a halfway house in Houston early this morning. This comes after serving federal time for attempting to bribe several council members back in the mid 90′s. He wanted their support to build a convention center hotel. Reyes was spending his last six months in the Cornell halfway house on Commerce in downtown Houston. The 59 year old walked away Friday morning at 7:55 am a free man. Reyes was once known as the political Godfather of Houston’s Hispanic East End. Reyes has served as a state legislator and city council member in the Bayou City!
