Fenenbock's Financial Flop
I don't know why, but I do.
And you know what Fenenbock loves?
No, I'm actually not talking about her position on charter schools, though she's flipped on that as well.
I'm talking about her position on taxes.
See when she's running for congress, or hell back when she was running for school board, she talks about controlling spending. When she ran for EPISD she said in an interview I've posted a couple of times that she wanted to control spending - and then proceeded to push for the largest public debt ever attempted in El Paso county - and passed it.
Now she's going after Escobar for taxes while she was County Judge. Here is video from just this past Thursday night at the Black El Paso Democrats Forum:
But is that how Dori deals on debt in real life?
I seriously get tired of pointing out the hypocrisy in her campaign, but this is egregious. Check out this email from Dori to Juan Cabrera when they were talking about the bond. For all you transparency fans, take note of how she wants to manipulate the facts to meet her desired goal.
By Dori Fenenbock's own admission, "there is a myth that we are over taxes in El Paso". At least, that is her story when she's trying to pass the largest bond ever attempted in El Paso's history. She even goes on to say that overall our tax burden is among the lowest in the country, which is actually no where near accurate.
But take special note of the part in green that I highlighted. If that isn't a shameful comment from an elitist then I don't know what is.
This non-stop parade of hypocrisy and the do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do attitude is how Fenenbock has fashioned herself as artificial, saccharine, and not credible.
Its just been one long series of self-inflicted wounds.
So since I'm a fan of quoting rap lyrics, this reminds me of an old classic by Mellow Man Ace called Mentirosa.
"Cuz right now you're just a liar, a straight mentirosa -
today ya tell me somethin' y mañana otra cosa,"
