More disrespect from city council

Aaron Montes of El Paso Times recently wrote this article about the district 6 city council representative.

It has been a while since we have seen this kind of reporting in the Times.

Thank you Aaron.

None of us can know what the city representative’s motives were.

From the outside it does look like she was using city money to promote both her and her husband’s political careers.

There evidently is a long standing city council rule that requires city representatives to get city council approval before spending their “discretionary funds” and in this case it appears that she spent the money without approval.

Some questions come to mind:

Why the heck do city representatives get any discretionary funds?

Does she have a city credit card and can thus spend money without going through purchasing?

If she did go through purchasing why wasn’t this caught?

Why doesn’t council do something about this?

We deserve better

    Obviously, the Shapleigh School of Progressive Scholars teaches the elements of plausible deniability:

    – I didn’t know I needed to do that
    – Someone else has gotten away with something similar
    – It’s an old rule that is no longer relevant
    – This is just a politically motivated attack.

    I predict the ethics complaint will be thrown out because it is not beneficial to our big donor agenda.

    This government here is completely rotten to the core. Frontline on PBS has a special edition on El Paso tonight on racism, “ the wall” and the Trump administration role in targeting El Paso.
