You remember Four Names Allala's editorial from the other day. Well, our future governor and current attorney general doesn't quite concur with Allala's idea of who's paying what.
Attorney General Greg Abbott filed the following document with the Third Court of Appeals.
Now, I don't speak Spanish or legalese. However, I do know plenty of people in El Paso willing to help me with both.
What this filing by Abbott means is that he ain't paying for the dessert he neither ordered nor ate.
Let's pretend we're all out at dinner. We all agree we will split the bill for the entrees and drinks. Then, after dinner is finished, one person in the party decides to order dessert even though nobody else wants it or will eat it. The group decides that since the dessert was just for the one person in the group, they're going to pay for it alone. This is what Abbott is saying here - he didn't ask for dessert and doesn't want to pay for it.
From what I understand the appeals court can read the motion and decide to decry that Allala is on the hook for costs. Oh, and she has zero chance of having this heard again. It's over. So that is really the only thing left on the table.
Now, I originally wrote that I hoped the city wouldn't stick her with the costs. I may be backtracking on that after she patted herself on the back in her editorial for her attempt at shitting on the constitution - most directly the fourth amendment. That really pissed me off.
Instead of simply saying that she tried and that's what counts, she kept up her bullshit bid to give herself investigative powers. I thought for sure being embarrassed by this court would have taught he a lesson - and believe me, everybody in the legal community considers the ruling a blow to her credibility (if there's any left). I'm think now that taking money out of her pocket might teach her a lesson.
I also blame her for the extreme digital silence at city hall. Now we have access to nothing because she tried to go all Joe McCarthy on everyone but the people who needed to be exposed.
I don't know... maybe I could be persuaded to feel sorry for her again. Every ankle-biter falls from annoying to tragic at some point.
