A Baytown councilman’s view of Trump’s impeachment caught my attention.
He thinks abuse of power and ignoring subpoenas aren’t provable crimes, so we should look the other way due to a good economy. He says he doesn’t like Trump because Trump insults his enemies. But that won’t stop our councilman from voting for Trump since he has shown results, like a good economy.
I wonder what this councilman would say if our mayor or city manager was caught trying to bribe a contractor with millions of taxpayer dollars? What would happen to the mayor or city manager if the DA’s office investigated the alleged bribery and subpoenas were ignored? The mayor or city manager would go straight to jail and council members would strongly support incarceration since no one is above the law.
And what if the mayor or city manager told 15,000 lies while in office, publicly used curse words to insult citizens, terminated employees on Twitter and supported racism /white supremacists?
Or what if the mayor or city manager secretly shifted millions from the police department budget to build a border wall in Old Baytown?
Even worse, what if the mayor or city manager asked Russia or Ukraine to interfere in Baytown elections?
All of these corrupt actions would obviously force council members to remove such a scumbag city leader.
So why did our Republican councilman say he’ll vote for a scumbag like Trump?
With personal standards this low, Republicans might as well nominate a Mafia crime boss for president — as long as he shows results.
