I won't even link to the El Paso Times or Jaime Abeytia's blog because their premise is so stupid it may stop your brain.
Dori hired a guy who does campaigns. He happened to be the guy they hired to help with the EPISD Bond issue - THAT YOU GUYS VOTED FOR AND PASSED. These same guys were showered with praise from EPISD BOARD MEMBER SUSIE BYRD. Byrd repeatedly worked to get these consultants more money and more responsibility. It wasn't until she found out that Dori was running that she reversed course.
The idea that somehow Dori's paying a campaign consultant money for consulting services is a bribe is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. SHE is PAYING HIM. Not the other way around. Either Jaime and the El Paso Times are too stupid to understand how a bribe works, or they are creating a lie for the purposes of helping Vero win by a wider margin.
Does nobody see the problem where Vero hires an EPISD board member for $60,000 to use her seat on that board to raise money for her campaign and use EPISD staff to investigate her opponent?
It doesn't matter if former vendors or current vendors of EPISD gave Dori money - SHE QUIT! Dori can't give them anything because she's in no position to do so. Byrd still works there! She still votes on vendor contracts and negotiations with teacher's unions. She is accused of using her position/vote on the EPISD board to threaten vendors, potential vendors and teacher's unions so that they support Vero.
Dori has listed her donors and her expenditures for all of the world to see. Vero has never listed El Paso Times' in-kind advertising on behalf of her campaign and she sure as hell hasn't reported the money she's paying Jaime Abeytia to write his blog. What about Vero and Susie's trip to DC to line up campaign cash while she was still sitting as the County Judge? Every lefty PAC I know remembers the two ladies from El Paso asking for money in the form of a check dated for the future. That's what their "fundraising conference" was. You know, the conference Susie went instead of voting on the EPISD budget... They're too stupid to understand that people in DC talk - especially about two women asking for money when they probably shouldn't have been.
Oh, but Dori went to a meeting with the JEWS! You may remember the El Paso Times hate-filled story about Dori's support for her own faith.
So, by Jaime's and the El Paso's time definition when you hire a guy to put new windows in your house, you're bribing him. Same thing goes for you the person who does your taxes - you're bribing him.
