UPDATE: Gonzales has withdrawn from the Democratic Primary for Sheriff less than 24 hours after he signed up.
This is what the Republican Party has become.
Monday a last minute candidate came forward to run in the Democratic Primary against Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. His name is Oscar Gonzales, with an “s”, and he isn’t a Democrat. According to Oscar’s voting record he is a triple R, voting in not only the last 3 Republican Party primaries, but every republican primary for the last 10 years.
Maybe he was encouraged by the Harris County Republican Party to run against a real Democrat with a similar last name. I’ve seen this tactic before with Dave Wilson poising as a Democrat and distributing misleading information much like Eric Dick has done. It’s a cheap trick to possibly confuse voters in the Democratic Primary and split the vote.
It’s dishonest. It’s so republican. It’s what they have become.
Thank you for exposing this. Glad we have someone like you keeping people honest and getting this information out to the public.
