Don’t Tell Me to Vote for John Whitmire After He Choose to Convict Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Without a Single Shred of Evidence

Sorry guys. I just can’t do it. Apparently, Harris County has lost its collective mind as many Republicans, including the Harris County GOP, are pushing John Whitmire for our next Houston Mayor. This pro-Whitmire surge is dumbfounding, particularly after he voted to impeach Texas Att. Gen Paxton on 15 of 16 articles of impeachment without a single piece of evidence!

During the impeachment sham, the so-called “bombshell witnesses” the house managers produced were, by Paxton’s killer legal defense attorney Tony Buzbee, one-by-one forced to utter the same, humiliating line, “No Evidence.” These bombshells proved to be merely duds.

I agree that Queen Sheila [Jackon-Lee] is the worst-case scenario for mayoral candidate of Houston, but from where I sit, both Whitmire and Sheila will steer Houston over the cliff. One benign difference: one will do so in a sports car; the other in a family wagon.

I’ve had many conservative friends try to browbeat me over this. The old “lesser of two evils” theorem. “Sheila will destroy Houston businesses! You must support Whitmire! You’re stupid if you don’t!”

Well, I guess “stupid is as stupid does.” Call me Forrest Gump. Call me naïve. Call me whatever you will. But that vote on Saturday showed me that Whitmire and all other Democrats do not need evidence to convict you. Will this new precedent somehow magically disappear once he’s sitting as Mayor in City Hall?

Will he suddenly now be fair to us conservatives? Will the rule of law suddenly matter? Hardly. You’re guilty solely because you’re a republican and/or conservative, as we witnessed during the impeachment fiasco over the past few weeks.

If Whitmire were serious, and he wanted to court conservatives and republicans, wouldn’t he have taken this opportunity to throw away party shackles for once in his lifetime? Wouldn’t he have tried to bridge the gap between us? Or is he so blinded by his ideology that he couldn’t even cast one vote to do the right thing?

Jack Christie

I do agree that most candidates other than Whitmire and Sheila Jackson-Lee are weak opponents, their odds of winning a seat are a longshot at best. For example, there’s Julian Martinez, owner of Bemer Motorcars, Jack Christie, former City Council member, and MJ Khan.


While these candidates have virtually no shot at winning, at least they are genuine conservatives. Shouldn’t we vote our conscience in Round One? It’s not like this election won’t have a runoff, right? What election doesn’t, with this many candidates?

When the election goes to a runoff, then, and only then, might I be persuaded to hold my nose, fight off nausea, and pull the lever for Whitmire. Then again, I’ll just cast a write-in ballot.

Any chance that I would have checked the Whitmire box permanently vanished once he outed himself as a man who cannot be a fair and impartial mayor of Houston. He’s beholden to his party. He’s blinded by his ideology. He can never be anything else other than who he truly is. A political shill.
