He Didn't Tell Me
Texas State Senators Frank Madla, Eddie Lucio or Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa - ¿Quién es más macho?
All three represent South Texas Senate Districts. Reportedly, all three were lined up to vote against the constitutional amendment banning gay marriages. In the end, only Hinojosa held his ground.
Some will say that the South Texas culture was an influencing factor. Well then how come Hinojosa can vote one way and Lucio and Madla can vote the other? Will Hinojosa face a serious general election or party primary challenger because of his vote against the ban? Doubt it. ¿Quién es más macho?
This spin has made a lot of folks uncomfortable even talking about it. Commentary for one consulted with Joe on politics, he never told me about this. Asked the young guns, some who were close to Joe, they never got this sense either.
Some of us honored Joe when we worked hard to help him become a state representative. Some honored Joe when they worked hard to help him get reelected.
