You would think that in the many years I have been doing this I wouldn’t be surprised by the dirty politics that play out in the El Paso political scene. Yet, I am continually surprised that the hypocrisy is so prevalent that it keeps me blogging. The latest poignant example is Ali Enrique Razavi.
Most of you know that he started publishing emails on April 10, 2014 that Veronica Escobar had sent him. He started publishing them in an attempt to hide his connection to the Forma Group. Recently, I shared with you how the emails expose Veronica Escobar’s lack of ethical behavior and forces us to question whether she conducts the public’s business in an open and transparent fashion.
As I reviewed the emails, Razavi’s hypocrisy so poignantly popped out that it took all of the will power I could muster to focus on the task at hand instead of getting distracted by the hypocrisy and point it out in a blog post. It took most of what I had left to get the Veronica Escobar blog posted.
But I couldn’t sleep; I had to point out the utter hypocrisy of Ali Razavi.
On October 16, 2013, Razavi posted a blog about Armando Rodriguez. In that blog, he wrote, and I post it here verbatim:
“You see nobody likes anybody who saves text messages. Armando has been holding onto a text message for nearly a year. I am sure there are a bunch of people out there, friends and enemies of Armando, that are probably wondering, “Does he keep everything?” Nobody likes that kind of person.”
This is written by the person who a few days ago published emails that Veronica Escobar had sent him in confidence. Razavi even wrote to Escobar that “No one needs to know that you know Max or talk to Max.” [June 4, 2013 2:46 email between Escobar and Razavi]
The hypocrisy oozes so thick that I am beyond disgusted by it.
It makes me wonder if Veronica Escobar likes the “kind of person,” Ali Razavi continues to demonstrate that he is. On second thought, I do not think Veronica Escobar cares who she associates with as long as they are the useful idiot she needs to keep her politically in play.
