You may have seen the headline on the El Paso Times' website, "Cobos says he was in Washington, DC, on county business and nothing else." You can get the story HERE.
He claimed to be meeting with administration officials on behalf of the County of El Paso. The respective departments confirmed his visit.
So why wouldn't he let us know that he was going on our behalf? That's news! If he's going to DC to talk about the proposed Tornillo port of entry the county's renewable energy program he ought to be championing his visit. He could at least have conferred with the many highly paid lobbyist working these issues - which he did not.
Veronica Escobar and Susie Byrd were in DC at the same time and everyone knew they were there talking about border issues. You'd think Cobos would have made his selfless efforts to help us out public!
Wait a second! I just read the piece David Crowder did on Newspaper Tree. You can find it HERE. The spokesperson from Ciro Rodriguez's office indicated that Cobos was there to talk about rural bus service. Wow! How come Cobos didn't let the Times' know that he was doing such a thing?
Why aren't everyone's stories adding up? In one instance Cobos was just making a courtesy call and then we find out that the courtesy call wasn't a courtesy call, but a meeting about "rural bus service."
Looks like somebody needs to start coordinating everyone's stories or risk being exposed for the what they are. This is a family show, so I'll refrain from giving my opinion on exactly what they are.
So let's cut that crap here. Cobos is full of shit and we wouldn't know it if we didn't have two news sources digging in the yard. Cobos and Reyes are conspiring to get Cobos to DC and to get Reyes' pick for County Judge in the seat for the next two years to keep Veronica Escobar out. Reyes can not afford to have Shapleigh and friends in all the good spots.
New Presidents afford people under federal investigation a good shot at making their problems go away. Cobos needs that to happen for him and who knows, maybe Reyes does to. Reyes is a good democrat and can be linked to every single person who has plead so far other than Ketner. If they get one of their cronies in as U.S. Attorney for our district then the investigation goes bye bye.
Cobos is using our tax dollars to pull a scam in DC and we can't just sit here and take it. Reyes is playing a game with his position in order to screw us as well - that guy needs to go. I plan on hitting all the major Beltway rags with the information I have. We'll see how the boy genius does when the big boys come a knocking on this door. He'll wish to God he was still sitting in a Border Patrol truck on the river reading the paper.
And if you missed the County Commissioner's meeting on Monday you missed a lot. Cobos and Jaime O. didn't get to pull off their latest scam. Cobos put an item on the agenda to fast track the hiring of a planning director at the county. Guess who he just happened to have in mind? Jaime O. They took special care to make sure that Jaime O. would get to keep his old title as Chief of Staff and add the new planning directory title to his business card along with the $50,000 increase in pay, of course.
Jaime O. made the argument to let this item slip for a little bit longer. I think they knew everyone was on to their little game, but it just goes to show how incredibly bold they are getting.
This is coming to a head very soon. Only you can prevent this forest fire.
We need to get Reyes out of office ASAP.
When Cobos resigns we need to make sure that the replacement isn't another bad guy.
We have to keep our eyes open. It's all going down right in front of us. What are you going to do about it?
