I’m sorry to say that Mr. Eversole is my Harris County Commissioner.
I’m sure the Tea Party—If it even exists anymore—will be focusing their energies on Mr. Eversole real soon.
Let’s hope that after this gift of an indictment is unwrapped we will find that it contains a conviction.
I’m not glad that Mr. DeLay and Mr. Eversole are in hot water simply because they are Republicans. I don’t think all Republicans are crooks.
What I’m glad about is that wrongdoing by powerful people can be called to account, and that members of a party that calls Democrats Communists and traitors can be brought to justice.
Who are the Republicans serving with Republican County Judge Executive Ed Emmett on our Harris County Commissioner’s Court?
We have the indicted Jerry Eversole.
And then we have incoming Commissioner Jack Morman who will replace the unelected Sylvia Garcia. I say “unelected” because Ms. Garcia would still be serving if enough Hispanics in Harris County had bothered to vote, and if the Harris County Democratic Party and the Texas Democratic Party made serious efforts to encourage Hispanic voting.
These Democrats don’t want to make serious efforts because then they would actually have to address the concerns of this voting group, and because Hispanic elected officials in low-turnout one-party constituencies might face a primary challenge or might have to really talk about serious issues.
As for Mr. Morman, he still has not updated his campaign web page to even address the fact that he won the election. Also, there is nothing at all on his web page that suggests at all what his views are on issues before the county.

Here is what Houston TV station KHOU reported on Election Night about Mr. Morman—
“Even GOP leaders Tuesday night could not place where they might have seen Morman on the campaign trail or at pre-election events. He was nowhere to be found on Tuesday night at the GOP party.”
Mr. Morman will be representing something like 750,000 people, and nobody has any idea of his positions impacting the county and he can’t even thank voters for putting him in office.
What a crew of Republican alleged criminals and blank slates at our Harris County Commissioner’s Court.
