Kudos to Newspaper Tree for breaking what I think is a huge story. Find it HERE.
Seems like Cobos and friends are still trying to control regional politics by getting involved in Horizon's city council and mayoral races. Turns out they haven't been participating in a completely legal manner.
The article goes into detail about how they aren't filing their reports associated with their PAC on a regular basis. They also found a guy (former PAC treasurer) to say he was getting direction from the Judge's office on who to give money to and how much. Sound like someone is running campaign efforts out of their public office. That's a problem.
My sources also tell me that Cobos' hatred for the current mayor of Horizon stems from some kind of MPO or RMA vote. Apparently the current mayor, Walter Miller, didn't vote the way Cobos wanted him to vote and Cobos didn't get his way. Turns out that this vote took place before Cobos was elected judge. It's unclear to me as to why he cared.
I am... too tired to keep up with these asshole for the next two weeks.
