These Democrats sure do know ho?w to take care of each other, huh?
The case against a South Texas judge charged with drunk driving has been dismissed.
Hidalgo County officials said Wednesday there is not enough evidence to prosecute 13th Court of Appeals Justice Nora Longoria. Judge Rolando Cantu dismissed the case against her last week.
District Attorney Rene Guerra tells the McAllen Monitor that Longoria didn’t appear to have slurred speech in a recording at the jail. There isn’t a recording of the traffic stop.
Could this be the evidence they never got?
A month after a Texas court threw out a DUI case against a judge because it lacked strong evidence, police released dashcam video of her arrest that showed her stumble through a sobriety test.
The new video, recorded during a July traffic stop in McAllen, showed Nora Longoria struggling to walk a straight line, Action 4 News reported. She teetered and lost her balance several times during her failed sobriety test, the video showed.
But Hidalgo County Court at Law No. 8 Judge Rolando Cantu threw out the case last month, marking “other” for the reasoning.
Another video is at the link.
Longoria is represented by Democratic state Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa of McAllen. Hinojosa didn’t return the newspaper’s requests for comment.
Convenient for one Democrat to represent another.
These Texas Democrats sure do love to get drunk.
