My God people - Vero has it in the bag, stop being so sensitive. This vote was a foregone conclusion months ago and I told you that. I've also made the point repeatedly that it's bad thing. These coronations create vertically integrated political machines that defame people, assassinate their character and restrain GOOD PEOPLE from running for office.
This has never been about beating Vero, but instead about educating all of you on just how dangerous and rotten your local political scene is. Anytime the obvious winner aims to punish challengers just for trying, you're no longer living in a democratic society. That's what a dictator does.
So... all this whining about this Super PAC is just dumb. Nothing they are doing matters in the race. Sure, they should follow the rules, but so should Vero's team. Where's the report where Jaime Abeytia's payments are noted for his efforts? The El Paso Times in-kind advertising and antisemitism? There's plenty of fingers to be pointed at Vero and her unreported, but paid, agents.
Where was Vero when Republican Super PACs jumped into to help Beto win his seat? She seemed to be just fine with Republican leaning Super PACs when they were helping her friends. Sounds like a typical Cowboys fan. If we win it's because we're better. If you win it's because you cheated. Although the problem here is that Dori can't win because the local Dem Patrons are scared shitless of Vero. Vero's just being whiney here.
Everybody should follow the rules. And that means the paper should be covering itself and it's unethical campaign contributions to candidates. Did I ever tell you that two of the members of the editorial board that was in charge of endorsements gave money to Vero before they endorsed her? I'd say that's about as shady as it gets in El Paso and that's saying a lot.
