Martin Paredes: Is it Stupidity or Intentional?

Being stupid isn't a crime, but it should be.

If it was, Paredes would be in a maximum security facility in Gitmo.

A lawyer friend messaged me after reading my previous post and point out something I missed that I believe was intentional.

Remember the fun little photoshop Paredes did that he was so super excited about that he tweeted it at meal bright and early this morning? Well there is something really interesting about it. Here it is in case you missed it earlier:

I mentioned how he very subtly includes the word "corruption" in the background.

But I missed something rather obvious. His use of the term "2nd degree misdemeanor".

There is no such thing as a 2nd degree misdemeanor in the State of Texas.

Maybe there is in Florida, but not here. Misdemeanors are classified by letters, A, B, and C.

Frankly I don't think it was a mistake on the part of Paredes. Oh don't get me wrong, I think he's dumb as a box of rocks. He's demonstrated that regularly.

But his inclusion of the word "corruption" in the background and then use of "2nd degree misdemeanor" in a different color font indicate to me that he is deliberately trying to make it sound like Ordaz is being accused of a felony.

Which is reckless and negligent on his part.

He's implying that Ordaz has been charged with a crime, which she hasn't. And not only is he trying to give people that impression, he's trying to make it sound like a felony.

Not a good situation for Paredes. He's probably going to get himself into some hot water.

The giveaway will be to see if he changes it when he publishes his post. I'm betting he changes it to try to avoid getting himself in trouble.

This is almost funny. And we wonder why young people don't bother to run for office!
