It’s almost funny.
Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar with help from Trump on Wheels, Greg Abbott, tried to claim Harris County “defunded” Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office in violation of the nanny state’s new law. As with all republicans, he lied.
Hegar attempted to use something called “fuzzy math” to make an unfounded claim that Harris County reduced funding for the Constables. Instead of having his staff call Judge Hidalgo’s office to discuss and address the issue, Hegar did what republicans do best, he just flat out lied then ran to the press like a whiny little bitch, again something the Republican Party is known for.
County Attorney, Christian Menefee, was forced to file suit against the Comptroller forcing Hegar to rescind his determination. According to Menefee:
“I’m glad the Comptroller admitted his error and is no longer holding Harris County’s budget process hostage,” said Harris County Attorney Christian D. Menefee. “I hope that in the future, we can talk through these types of allegations, as the law requires, before the Comptroller makes a final decision. Texans expect their elected representatives at different levels of government to be able to get on the phone and solve problems, even when they disagree. I urge the Comptroller to talk to us next time instead of forcing us to file a lawsuit.”
In the future Hegar has been given updated instructions on how to use an iPhone.
Too late. The sentiment & judgement is out.
