You can read Jaime's bullshit claim HERE. It seems Peter was not ready for today's meeting even though a ton of people reached out to help him (including two sitting Reps who were basically told to pound sand by Peter and his staff).
Rep. Ann Lilly Morgan left Peter a comprehensive list District 1 appointments. A comprehensive list of pending District 1 requests of different departments that detailed which constituents made the request, when they made the request and where the request was in the process. This unprecedented in local El Paso politics - it has never happened. Peter and his staff blew her off and threw away the information. I'm not kidding - just put all that valuable information in the circular file the second the meeting was over.
Now we kind of headed off Jaime's chance at a job with Peter before the election ended (Jaime was quite upset, but had he just admitted his role I would have let him slide), but that doesn't mean he's not working for him today. Peter has pissed a lot of people off since the election and it seems that Jaime is charged with trying to save Peter via his blog that gets light to moderate traffic.
It's a shame Peter doesn't listen. I reached out to him and it took an intermediary getting involved to have Peter call me back. I was warning him about the coming ethics complaint that will be filed against him for collecting and spending money too early. I gave him some very good advice on how to self-report and be free of any fines or other actions. Do you think the guy gave a single shit? Nope. Now he's going to be on the hook for as much $87,000 - the worst fine in El Paso elected official history and some of those people are in jail!
I tried. He'll get the votes right when has to, but I sure wish he'd let folks help him cut his own path.
