Battle of the Spouses

Why did Hidalgo County Democratic Party Chairman Juan Maldonado reject the candidacy of incumbent state Rep. Mando Martinez's future ex-wife in the race for his spot?

It seems she didn't fill out the paperwork correctly when she filed to run against her estranged husband. But Jessica Reyes-Martinez claims the move is "a political scheme between Maldonado and her husband."

Probably Maldonado is using the paperwork oversight as a face-saving way of avoiding additional political embarrassment for Hidalgo County Democrats. (Insert your own snide comment here.)

Of course, the soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Martinez could always run as an independent. It seems to be the popular thing to do these days.

Rene Guerra alone would fill an editorial page on just HIS questionable antics. Not to mention the sheriff in the brig marmolejo, the Hidalgo 12, the county clerk with the weed and 10K cash in his "daddy's car", the metally unstable wife of a curent candidate for ofice, I coiuld go on and on. Buit we keep lecting these bozos and therefore we deserve the accompanying derision that local politics brings , as is .
But we blindly pull the palanca no matter who is runnig 'cuz like the proverbial sheeple, we don't know better. I nlame this oin the huge influx on ignorance from other countris who don't know any better than the words like free, wic, food estamps(sic)lone estar(sic) .
