The El Paso Times is on the story! Who else did you think would cover it? Exactly.
Hector H. Lopez - our favorite sweater vest wearing Chicano nerd - is going to run for mayor and lose to Steve Ortega possibly worsethan I lost to Haggerty - which is nearly impossible. I really hope all that money he collected was from front-dated checks!
The good news is that his treasurer is a local Democratic has-been with about as much pull with voters as Norma Chavez .... which is to say - zero. I'm assuming that Hector H. Lopez's crack campaign team consisting of Norma Chavez, Dr. Don Juan and Reyes' over-paid niece suggested he wheel out Robles as some kind of marker of legitimacy for his campaign. What none of them realize is that she was a part of the team that saw Congressman Reyes lose a campaign he should have won by at least 25 points. They literally hired the worst coach in the league to join the worst offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator and quarterback in the league. This should be great.
Some of you are miffed that the El Paso Times reporter claims that Hector H. Lopez is a radio show host on KHRO 1150 when it's clear he hasn't held that position in years. Is it bad reporting? Or is it a signal that this guy hasn't had a real job... ever? He claims to be some kind of Chief Vice President of Executive Operations and President of the Chairman of the Board of Directors of some nonexistent Hispanic club - which we all know is bullshit. I have to assume the reporter had nothing else to report other than he was once a radio show host for a brief time. I feel sorry for her because she had nothing to go on because the guy is a loser without a real job and had to figure what to write other than "he's a loser without a real job."
What the El Paso Times did miss is that he apparently listed a UPS store as his address. It's legal, however, it's weird. Unless, he has some kind of "delivery" theme for his campaign. Then it would be cool.
