The opposition’s attack on HISD Trustee District VIII candidate Judith Cruz continues.  The latest was in a mail piece that kind of hinted that Judith was not a Latina.  Oh brother again!  

 I was checking out the campaign reports and it turns out the dreaded Coalition of Harris County Democratic Elected Officials plunked down $10,000 for Judith’s opponent a week before the November 2 election.  I thought they were only supposed to play in judicial races.  I thought they were supposed to help out the Dem ticket candidates.  What are they doing playing in HISD races?  I don’t know about that. 

 The opposition attacked Judith over the weekend because some GOPers are supporting us.  Of course they didn’t say anything about the big check Judith’s opponent received a couple of weeks ago from that Dannenbaum fella that gave Guv Dude, the Lite Guv, and other GOPers over $100,000 this year alone.    Of course, they are not going to mention that Dannenbaum fella also gave that Hootze fella $20,000 last year to pay for that mailer during the mayoral run-off.

 Things will get settled tomorrow for sure.
