...until he does not.
Yet again, your mayoral candidate did not want to provide the El Paso Times with a comment regarding the "frivolous" complaint.
You can describe the ethics complaint against Saucedo anyway you want.
Regardless of your choice of adjective, the complaint had enough validity to it that Saucedo felt compelled to "correct" it.
If Saucedo really thinks this complaint is much ado about nothing, then instead of huff-and-puffing on Chris Hernandez-drafted press releases, he would tell the El Paso Times:
"I previously dismissed my treasurer, and subsequently my treasurer was replaced. In the transition, an error was made in filing our financial reports, but we have since corrected it."
"Due to the nature of this complaint, which I take seriously, I have replaced my treasurer. It this sort of accountability El Pasoans can expect from me at City Hall."
Saucedo would rather not talk it about directly, and instead have Chris issue a one-page press release that basically avoids the matter and just slams Margo.
I do not care.
But rather than delve into the weeds of campaign finance laws and ordinances, El Paso media folks should just ask Saucedo:
"Do you have a treasurer? Did you ever have a treasurer? Did you ever replace your treasurer?"
Oh, and ask:
"If you're such a badass, why didn't Emma Acosta fuck up her paperwork like you?"
