Fenenbock's Financial Flop

I love alliteration when it comes to Dori Fenenbock.

I don't know why, but I do.

And you know what Fenenbock loves?

Flip-Floppin' apparently.

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 maƱana otra cosa,"

We good?

Also, she mentions in 2006 the tax burden was 1,600 plus and it went down to $1,200+.. Isn't that a testimony to Veronica's work in itself??

She’s also uninformed— or lying— about wages not going up. Au contraire Moi Cherie!
“El Paso’s median household income last year was $43,692, up from $40,207 in 2014, which marks an 8.7 percent increase. The national median household income last year was $56,516,which is a 5.2 percent jump from 2014.”

Oh but the El Paso Times is biased! Ok:
“El Paso County, TX has a population of 835,593 people with a median age of 32 and a median household income of $43,692. Between 2014 and 2015 the population of El Paso County, TX grew from 833,487 to 835,593, a 0.25% increase and its median household income grew from $40,170 to $43,692, a 8.77% increase.

Maybe if her husband didn’t export jobs to Mexico where he can pay workers less than $5/ day (Mexico’s minimum wage is about $4.70), there would be more jobs in El Paso County. Again, hypocritical much Dori?

Jaime, I for one like your Blog. It is informative, fact filled, has graphics, screen shots and even You Tube this one. So, the Haters and especially David Karlsruher can all go Fuck themselves.

Speaking of which, I am shocked that David K has not called you as being Anti-Semitic because of this, most recent post. Everytime ANYONE says anything, or posts anything, he starts pulling his "You are Anti-Semitic because you have dared say anything Negative about Dori" card. The man needs to get a life.

At least you LIVE IN EL PASO! while David KKK lives in Austin. I'm not sure where he gets his information....someone suggested his Mother keeps him tuned in...but, he needs to get a grip. Dori is a LifeLong Republican as is her husband Mark. Why hide the truth? Besides, I don't understand her "Vanity Project" of running for Congress. She (or her husband), have already shelled out $300,000. That's alot of shekels she could have used to go shopping in Beverly Hills or contributed to AIPAC. I am also literally shaking my head at her choice of campaign advisors.

Silver and his daughter? Silver couldn't even distinguish between Shi'ite and otherwords, Shi'te from Shinola. Christian Archer (for a time). The long, sad list goes on....

Anyways, keep up the good work and

Oh yes, lets’s talk about her choice of political advisors, lest anyone forget:
On Sunnis vs Shias:
On corruption & ethics:
On immigration:
Yes, a great choice for. Republican pretending to be a Democrat.

I know you said...

Augustus should start his own blog. A haven for societal rejects and folks with inferority complexes. What a useless soul...

Dear "I know what you said" (AKA David Karlsruher). Sweetheart, you seem to be projecting your own feelings of low self esteem and low self worth. It is a Jungian response to people who can't handle the truth.

By the way, go Fuck yourself.
