I've said all along that Vero should be picking out curtains for her office in DC, not campaigning. The whole thing is a foregone conclusion. She surely shouldn't be paying money to Jaime Abeytia to write ridiculously thin hit pieces on Dori. Check out this post where Jaime was obviously yelled at by Vero to write something negative about Dori or face having the money cut off.
His first weak claim is that Dori is somehow lying about being a "campanero" because she became a "campanero" the only way you can possibly become a "campanero" - giving $120 to the local party. One of Jaime's biggest fans emailed me to laugh at his odd and incorrect assertion and to point out that Jaime is just jealous because he's never given any money to the party. His fan tells me "Jaime supposes Doris isn't a democrat, yet she's given more money to the local party than he has in a decade or ever will. When the tithing basket is passed Jaime is always in the bathroom, yet when the food and drink are out, he never misses communion at these events."
Bottom line, Dori is in a Democratic primary with hundreds of thousands of dollars in her pocket. The local Democratic party benefits from her involvement.
The second weird idea Jaime has is that Dori is somehow like Trump because she makes a reference to cleaning things up around town. You don't have to be much of an astute political watcher to know that every candidate in the past 30 years has made some kind of reference to cleaning up either Washington, their city hall or the state capital. It's a stretch to try and single out Dori and Donald as exclusively simpatico on this idea. In fact, it's an insult to his readers that know better.
What Jaime doesn't report on his own involvement in the illegal activity at YISD and their bond issue of recent past. Jaime likes to spread lies about Texas Ranger investigations, but totally forgets to talk about real investigations with real outcomes and real guilt. Maybe Dori wants to clean up the kinds of activity the YISD Super got busted for? Don't you want that cleaned up?
The second thing Jaime seems to missing is Vero's best friend lobbying for a contract in front of the County Commissioner Court. Max Powers got the story HERE.
Even here in Austin Jose's actions have made the whisper rounds. I was asked "Isn't that guy a former county attorney? Shouldn't he know better?" Maybe Dori is talking about cleaning up that kind of behavior. You know, the kind of behavior where elected officials pressure other elected officials to hire them...
I hope the checks Jaime is getting are big because the words he's writing are hurting him and his candidate. I'd shut up, got to Hobby Lobby and start looking at curtain rods and fabric...
