The Texas Rangers were supposed to ride into town, shoot half of city council for stealing horses and then ride off into the sunset. That didn't happen. Instead, the local law(yer) decided to assemble a grand jury (jury grande en espanol) so he could hang the horse thieves himself. But why?
Could it be that the Texas Rangers declined to investigate yet another problem in El Paso?
Or, did the Texas Rangers agree to investigate, but not right now... you know... like right before this election. If that's the case, the local law was told by the Shapleigh Campers that in order to win the seats they want, they needed to have their enemies under active investigation. That makes sense to me... the most sense.
If I was the mayor or any of those other horse thieves, I'd by lobbing ethic complaints at the string pullers who are making their lives hell. If each of them spend a little time filing complaints every day, they might just take the heat off of themselves. It sucks to run for congress when you're battling 50 frivolous ethics complaints.
Also - Does anyone know if the Mayor himself sent or received the texts about that meeting in question? I don't know, so this is a real question, not a lead-in to a joke.
