Because Veronica Escobar did not resign earlier, she gave Dori Fenenbock some ammunition.
That damn ego of hers gets in her own way.
Yes, to be an elected official you have to have an ego, but it is on a spectrum.
Escobar's is on the bad end of the spectrum.
Had Escobar resigned earlier she would not have given her "State of the County" speech.
In her mind, she thought doing that speech was a good idea.
She had a captive audience, and she can feel good about herself rattling off her alleged accomplishments.
And boy did she rattle off.
And in doing so, Fenenbock got a story and an online ad campaign out of it.
Again, could have been avoided, but no.
Escobar wanted to do her speech.
And then there is Escobar returning a contribution back to County Judge Ruben Vogt.
Again, her ego.
She wanted to show how honest she was by returning the money back to Vogt.
But in doing so, again another story.
Returning the money looks worse than keeping it.
You return the cash if Harvey Weinstein gave it to you. But Vogt is not Weinstein, at least I do not think he is, but I do not know now because Escobar has me wondering.
It really is amateur hour over there in Escobar's campaign.
She should win this race, but she might end-up getting in her own way.
