Go over to http://elpasospeak.com/ and check out how they are now trying to spin the Shawver lights debacle back to Joyce Wilson.
I figured that at some point a few folks in the illegitimate blogger media would try to create some kind of conspiracy theory where city staff sabotaged Holguin on purpose. They will conveniently forget that city staff warned city council that the display would suck when the item was being discussed. And they miss the fact that 99 percent of these types of displays are designed and booked during the summer leaving anyone looking to start something in November out in the cold.
The guys over at El Paso Speak really thought they had a candidate in Holguin and are a little bummed that he fell down right out of the gate. Can you blame them for pretending that some kind conspiracy killed their dreams of county domination? The truth is so much harder to take. You know, that whole reality where Holguin isn't just a blood sucking politician who will spend tax dollars on his pet projects even if it's reckless and unwarranted. And don't forget that Holguin is just a shameless politico that will try and buy votes any way he can. Forget actually running on a platform with some semblance of solutions to current issues.
They will take Holguin's word for it even though in the KLAQ interview he changes his story multiple times - as he has done since this thing broke. The only thing he hasn't lied about is that the idea was his to begin with. He's attempted to twist everything else he thought he could get away with.
I guess the beating he's taking in the paper isn't sitting well with the Escobar haters. I think they should have recruited a better candidate in the first place and they wouldn't have had this problem. Remember - Holguin almost lost in his own district to start-up white guy with the last name "Hicks." His political standing among the people in his own district has long been shaky at best.
