2 on the Beat has reported about the nasty war of words being waged between republican incumbent Sheriff Tommy Thomas and democratic challenger Adrian Garcia.
Today, Mayor Bill White defended Garcia, who is a member of the Houston city council and a former Houston Police officer.
During his opening remarks at Wednesday’s city council meeting, the mayor said a new attack ad by Sheriff Thomas represented the ”politics of personal destruction.”
As I’ve reported, Sheriff Thomas has launched a new TV political ad accusing Garcia of using marijuana. The ad says Garcia also lost drug evidence and wrecked a police cruiser while he was on the force.
The sheriff says he is simply fighting back with the truth after weeks of being attacked by the democrats.
Garcia says he admitted smoking pot when he was sixteen, and says he was honest about it on his application to the police academy.
