As I have said many times in the past:
Running for office is not a game. The position has a direct impact on people’s lives whether it is timely trash collection or providing a safe neighborhood with our police and our fire fighters. Don’t cheapen the office by running just for the sake of running and distracting from those who have a clear understanding of what they are doing and are qualified to run.
And let me add…if you can’t follow the laws, you shouldn’t be running to make the laws. Case in point, Sema Hernandez running for United States Senate in Texas. I have searched the Federal Election Commission’s website for her filings for both 2018 and 2020 with no luck. I found Congressman O’Rourkes who raised over $80 Million for his race in 2018. Sema’s reports are no where to be found. I have reached out many times and have not received a response.
Not filing reports is against the law. If Sema has filed they are well hidden. If she hasn’t she should stop with this game and quit. Besides not having any experience to be running for office, she doesn’t seem interested in following the laws of the Federal Elections Commission. Hopefully any organization that intends to invite her to participate in a debate will reconsider until her reports are found.
