Even though the El Paso Times refuses to publish information damning to Judge Escobar, below is the email stream in which it is clear that Escobar was very much a part of an ethics complaint against Tommy Gonzalez and getting the City Manager fired.
Subject: letter to the Ethics commission
Jim and Veronica:
I think Jim should send this letter to the Ethics Commission. Let me know wha you think.
The letter mentioned is a letter to Stuart Schwartz, the Chair of the City’s Ethics Commission. The Ethics Complaint Form was authored by “Michael”, probably the attorney husband of Judge Escobar, Michael Pleters, and last saved by Susannah Byrd.
The Escobar-Pleters were knee deep in the cabal against Tommy Gonzalez.
Can you say “Abuse of Power”?
