Today, Liberty Dispatch unabashedly will post a very clear discrepancy between the Liberty County Democratic Party and the State of Texas with no concern about them lying or manipulating or turning the tables on us. There has been incident after incident over the years where Democrats have blown it and, with the help of Democratic officeholders and the local media have covered it up or worse.
But the donkey party needs to simply correct their mistake and leave all the political games in the past. They never were good at their manipulation, but when they had all of the power they got away with it.
Liberty County Democratic Chairman Nancy Archer has signed and posted a Notification of THE Deadline of an Election on the county’s website that indicates a final day to sign up to run in the primary that is different than the final day the state of Texas has set forth.
The implications on Chairman Archer’s unilateral extension of the deadline to December 18th are noteworthy despite the fact she is all but begging for candidates. We have said all along that democracy is at its best when there is competition and the public loses by having fewer choices because local democrats don’t have their stuff together – and these days that fact can’t have a happy face put on it.
Please note the last day to sign up for a place on the ballot, both Democrat and Republican, is December 15th.
