There are other options; one could look for a better-paying job.
I am just glad that the Houston Chronicle finally got around to publishing all the naughty things that Whitmire has been involved in.
If you can’t read the Chronicle article because you refuse to support them, I will quote one or two small parts of a very, very long article on naughty things that Whitmire has been up to his eyeballs in.
Whitmire has said he will quit his job with Locke Lord and stop practicing law if he wins the runoff. And, as he has in the past, Whitmire argued such conflicts are relatively unavoidable in a Legislature that pays its part-time members just $7,200 a year, a far cry from the $236,000 salary Houston mayors earn. …
Close associates of Whitmire could have financial interests at City Hall. His daughter, Whitney Whitmire, is the co-owner of a lobbying and government relations firm that launched after her father announced his mayoral bid. It has recently started representing influential groups at City Hall and in Austin, including some key backers of Whitmire’s campaign.
Trust me, just cause I have been a naughty boy for fifty (50) years doesn’t mean I won’t be different for the next four years.
Well, since Republicans like their politicians dirty and corrupt, Whitmire may get his chance to prove that he told the truth.
Houston LGBTQ+ Political Caucus calls out District H Cynthia Reyes-Revilla campaign mailer.
The source is the Houston Chronicle.
I don’t know what the big deal is that Cynthia Reyes-Revilla did that would upset a community or the opposing candidate. Mr. Castillo is openly gay, he ain’t hiding his sexual preference.
The message includes a graphic with a side-by-side comparison of Reyes-Revilla with her family and her challenger, Mario Castillo, with his husband. The campaign wrote phrases including “Committed Christian Family Values” under her name and below Castillo, allegations include, “Not a man of Faith.”
She made a mistake by coming out with that message late in the campaign. If she was going to do that, she should have done it before mail ballots went out. Old folks are the ones that are most likely to find that message appealing.
Political campaigns are like wars; without the guns, all is fair, but shooting and killing. Read the Prince, or how Karl Rove got George W. Bush elected. The object is to win unless you are doing it for the cheap advertisement of your business, a la Dick.
