    I’m surprised they haven’t yet floated a scheme for the city to finance acquisition of Billy Abraham’s DTEP properties and turn the portfolio over to Sanders & Co to develop, at taxpayer expense. All it needs is a Russ Vandenberg appraisal and a Joyce Wilson offer to make it happen 🙂

    Let’s not forget Sanders also has a PAC that backs his son-in-law, Beto O’Rourke and there were also a fair number of unhappy investors in his Verde Realty deal–the WSJ had some negative things to say about it.

    And don’t forget that Beto, El Paso’s fair-haired congressman and then City Council rep, was allowed to vote on every downtown item that came before City Council even though his father-in-law, Sanders, could benefit. The conflict of interest was brought before Council but nixed by City Attorney Charlie McNabb. Very early in Beto’s first term on City Council, before the ballpark idea became public, he began talking about tearing down City Hall. But Beto is lucky. He was off of City Council and on his way to Washington D.C. before the ballpark opponents became vocal. Steve Ortega? Not so lucky. Now Beto can do not wrong in the eyes of many even though he was up to his ears in conflict of interest in El Paso.

    It’s interesting how Stevo can get all the hell for that thing, but Suzy Bird walks right into an other elected position. Gross. It’s hard being a brown man taking the fall for the white folk these days.

      You could not be more right. Stevo paid the price. The voters told him what they think of the scheme. Suzy is financed by Beto and got elected because her competition was a school board member that allowed the crimes at the school district. I don’t live in her district but people who live there say they would never vote for her again. Veronica and her are friends with the Perv.
