Recalls, Corruption, Bribes, Drugs, a Grand Jury, and Arlie Ricasa
Quite an interesting headline for a blog post, right? Well, as I was blog trolling this morning, I found a new post over on the Recall Ricasa blog regarding the recall of Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez, but also some interesting tidbits on Sweetwater Union High School District’s superintendent Jesus Gandara and his family’s involvement in crooked politics in Texas.
According to the blog, superintendent Gandara’s brother, Willie Gandara, Sr. and the superintendent’s son, Jesus Gandara, Jr. are both being recalled after a slew of corruption allegations came to fruition in Socorro, TX. Apparently, the whole story plays out like the entire Gandara family which includes a Mayor, city councilman, and an El Paso County Commissioner are all linked together after a grand jury indictment caught them in a corruption web of lies, bribery, drugs, and the blog somehow links it all back to Sweetwater and Arlie Ricasa.
It’s certainly an interesting read! You can check out the article here.
I also noted that the Recall Ricasa blog is now on Facebook in case any fellow, good government conservatives want to “like” it. Perhaps the effort is gaining some traction?
