From coast to coast, we’ve seen a little too much of a “pushy” streak in some public officials.
A good example is Lena Hidalgo, Harris County (Houston, Texas) County Judge, who has been the making the front pages on a daily basis. By the way, this is not a judicial position but rather more of a county administrative post.
First, she ordered residents to cover their faces in public. The Houston Police Officer’s Union refused to enforce it and criticized the order as unworkable and potentially unconstitutional.
Who is Lena Hidalgo? She is a progressive elected in the “Beto wave” of 2018. As you may remember, the left invested $80 million to defeat Senator Cruz the last time. Beto O’Rourke didn’t win, but the Democrats used the money to boost Democrat turnout and that’s how we got Lena Hidalgo by 25,000 votes or 49.8% to 49.2%.
What’s next for Lena Hidalgo? I don’t know but let’s hope that the GOP get that seat back in 2022.
