(Finally) Doing the Right Thing

Shame, or perhaps a sense of the inevitable, overtakes Aaron Gonzalez, who resigns from his position as Edcouch-Elsa school board president.

Gonzalez, of course, remains behind bars on charges of witness tampering after a judge denies him bond. The feds originally busted Gonzalez last December for conspiracy to commit extortion, mail fraud and bribery.

I called for Gonzalez to step down back then and last week. The blog South Texican predicted his resignation yesterday, and ST's source was right on the money.

Meanwhile, a second local blog, Republic of the Rio Grande, says the charges against Gonzalez may lead to trouble for other local candidates. Still another blog, RGV Politics, has an essay on the disgraced E-E leader from earlier this week.
