Where Is He Now?

Speaking of clowns, Hidalgo County District Clerk Omar Guerrero, already famous for being a no-show at the office, missed a court appearance last week -- no, it wasn't related to his arrest for DWI and marijuana possession.

His lawyer tells NewsChannel 5 that the district clerk didn't know about a bank's lawsuit over a loan. Because Guerrero didn't show up, the judge entered a default judgment in favor of the bank for $17,000, interest and attorney fees.

The punchline comes when the TV station tries to reach Guerrero for a comment:

NEWSCHANNEL 5 attempted to contact Guerrero at his courthouse office, but was told he was not there.

I womnder what happened to the over 10K he had in the car that belonged to "daddy"? I would venture to guess that local cops, IRS or the DEA would be interested in that much cash based on his salary.Was it his? Was it repported to IRS? Did he claim it? Why would THAT much cash be in a car, if its not related to a dope deal, or kidnap ransom since Hidalgo co. is the psuedo cop capital of the valley ? Is EVERYONE crooked in Hidalgo county?

No not really. But people run out of here and tell wild stories. They then return a few years later with their tail between their legs.

It was actually 8K. And the only reason that Omar was in the new was that this suit was perfectly orchastrated by FNB. Remember that's JD's bank of preference. And since District Clerk is the only office that his slate has a chance of winning, they are putting all their energy into it!

say Frank, "not really" ? Huh? Is that like not "everyone" is CROOKED? Just mostly everyone? Just half the population? Dirty politics is to blame? You guys are begining to sound like us down here , in camaroon (sic) county. Or is it vice versa? Either way we both have our fair share of idiotas as politicians huh?
