A Double Endorsement From The Sheriff’s Deputy League

I can only blame myself, and then apologize to you for not making a phone call  to clarify and verify information that I received  from one of the candidates for Mayor of  Houston.

As I reported  earlier, Houston Mayoral Candidate Annise Parker’s campaign announced today that it has won the endorsement of  the Afro-American Sheriff’s Deputy League.

A short time later, I heard from supporters of  Gene Locke,  who claimed their candidate was endorsed by the same group.

The Locke campaign emailed a copy of a letter  as proof of the endorsement from the Afro-American Sheriff’s Deputy League.

It looks like the group has issued a DOUBLE Endorsement.

2 on the Beat is trying to contact  deputy league President J.M. “Smokie” Phillips Jr. for comment.

In the meantime,  I hope that  I don’t get a phone call from supporters of   mayoral candidates Peter Brown and Roy Morales.

  1. Looks like Smokie Phillips is using the league trying to jockey for Chief Hurtt’s job. That’s politics.
