I'm not even going to link to the piece of trash the El Paso Times published trying to save face on the city manager ethics complaint. It's just sad that they can't face the facts and stop doing Senator Shapleigh's work for him.
Even Jaime Abeytia tried to make some bullshit up about Rep. Emma Acosta trying to stack the commission in the city manager's favor even though he knows she only gets one appointment. Jaime failed to see that not a single thing they said about the city manager was true, but he was willing to impugn Acosta's entire political career over her doing what she is supposed to do - appointment people to commissions. It's a not-so-organized attempt at winning public opinion. Smart people see that they are all fools.
I don't care at all who the city manager is or what that person makes in way of salary. The important question is the corrupt way in which public officials and the media conduct themselves. This entire ordeal has been underhanded, defamatory and designed to bring into power people who did not earn and are not allowed it by law.
Anybody care to look into how Rep. Lily Limon used her city credit card and the unauthorized construction at her city office? No, we don't care about real abuse of power and waste of taxpayer dollars. We get mad when kids are protected from speeding cars and old neighborhoods finally get the improvements the new rich neighborhoods get every couple of years.
