Adam Powell of the El Paso Times just published a report revealing that Jeremy Jordan, the husband of City Rep. Cassandra Hernandez, filed a complaint with the State Bar of New Mexico against attorney Casey Williams, Chairman of the El Paso Ethics Review Commission!
This is the same Commission that presented a Letter of Reprimand to Hernandez for abusing her City gas card privileges, affirming that she used her position “to secure unwarranted privileges for [herself], relatives or others” and that the misuse was “intentional.”
Let that sink in for a moment…
Jordan threatened the professional career of the man who presides over the all-volunteer Commission that investigated his wife.
And tomorrow his wife will stand again before the Commission to ask them to reconsider their Determination and withdraw the Letter of Reprimand.
Powell confirmed the bar complaint was summarily dismissed by the New Mexico Supreme Court’s Disciplinary Board, which concluded there is “insufficient evidence to support [Jordan’s] allegations that [Williams] has violated the rules of professional conduct.”
When asked for comment on Jordan’s complaint, Hernandez told the El Paso Times “we don’t work together in this fashion.”
LMAO! We do not believe you, Cassandra!
Her sordid behavior reminds me of President Richard Nixon, who used his position to destroy his political opponents, and her husband reminds me of Lady Macbeth, the protagonist of Shakespeare’s tragedy who secretly conspires to advance the career of her spouse.
Hernandez has repeatedly impugned her colleagues on City Council—especially Reps. Kennedy and Molinar—in an ongoing effort to ruin their careers.
In February, she provided an “affidavit” to the Ethics Review Commission to try to take down Kennedy, and she since has gone after him, his colleagues on FOAC, and the Chief Internal Auditor for investigating her gas card usage.
She has publicly attacked Molinar over allegations that he made a woman uncomfortable when he asked her to dance at a City luncheon.
Deborah Paz, who was a paid employee of Hernandez’s campaign for reelection, created the PAC “Women’s Voices for Political Reform” that is attempting to recall Molinar. Her PAC has the same address as Jordan’s business. She has filed ethics complaints against Reps. Annello and Kennedy that are pending.
And now we learn that Jordan tried to take down the Chair of the Ethics Review Commission.
Can you smell that foul, sulfurous odor emanating from District 3?
