The Chron gave us a Christmas Eve piece today about a certain Al Hoang, an H-Town City Council member-Elect.  Check it out.  He and his wife apparently hold two homestead exemptions.  That is illegal.  The Harris County District Attorney won’t let us know if they are investigating.  It will probably be Pat Lykos’ call on whether or not to proceed.  Let’s see if a GOPer will go after a fellow GOPer.

He also fudged on his campaign reports and the local GOP Chair is saying all this is “sour grapes.”  I will be real disappointed if the local Dem Party doesn’t find someone to file a complaint with the Texas Ethics Commission against Hoang to at least get the violator to cough up a few thousand in fines.

Why are we now learning about this?  How come we didn’t know about it before the election?  Did someone drop the ball? Somebody needs to do some ‘’splaining!

According to the H-Town City Charter, the Mayor-Elect will have to be sworn in before the big public ceremony on January 4.  It is going to be in private.   Hope somebody sneaks in one of those iphone gizmos and sends it out.

Last night Miya read us her cute and very political “Twas the Night Before Christmas” that she won’t publish…awww!

Meanwhile, “not a creature was stirring not even a mouse” at The Yard.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good weekend!
