THE SIDE OF THE STORY NOT IN THE HERALD

I have no idea who is lying or telling the truth. I was not there. I know the entire County Judge race is a mess. I know Rodger Ortiz mismanaged the process and should be fired. Beyond that, I know nothing.

Channel 23 is doing another story with the other side now speaking. In the same way DA Villalobos ran to defend the Democrats - Daniel Cavasos of the Herald has run to destroy the Democrats. Why did the Herald not give equal time to the other side? Are you telling me the Herald could not find the people claiming everything was done on the up and up.

Does this story mean that the Dems have not tried to steal the election? No - not at all - it is just journalism - covering both sides of the story.

In fact in the story the example wherein the voter filled in the blank for Cascos, but the vote went for Wood in my mind is a clear example of bias for Wood - the voter could have just as easily put the "X" first and then decided that was not the right way to vote and then filled in the oval. I would have given the vote to Cascos, or neither

I will say this - if Wood looses and does not file an election contest he will be admitting guilt - this is a soap opera not going away any time soon.

Your first line tells about the impact politics has on Brownsville. We no longer trust anyone! They all tell you what they know you want to hear and we swallow it hook, line and sinker!
Who's fault? Ours!
