    She must have a very "special" constituency that votes for her.

    She's run uncontested for many terms. It wouldn't have taken her much to get voted back in. Add to the fact she's in a district which houses many transient students and other uninterested residents. Her husband is also a higher up at the University of Houston. He's considered somewhat of an embarassment as well, based on what I've heard from someone I know close to his same level on the food chain.

    She's been pretty much a lock almost every term.

    I had read that there was a very serious contender who had planned to run against her in the 2008 election and was advised against it because of the Obama effect. I think (hoping) that 2010 will be open season on her seat.

    I used to admire her when she was first voted in. She was still very connected to local issues. Now she's pretty much an embarassment.

    Sounds like she is just getting voted in now due to name recognition then.

    Kind of like...Jeff Johnson, the Name you know...thing from that eddie murphy movie.

    Sounds to me like a perfect opportunity for a WG write in vote. I can show up with a good 150 on election day to cast our support WG. I know they will show up because most of them are family and they owe me money.

    Say the word WG and we are there.

    :D

    That's exactly what's going on. I used to live in her district when she was first voted in. She had to leave the city council due to term limits. So she's been part of Houston politics for a long, long time.

    I just think it's time for a "change." :cool: :p:

    I pay attn to her because I know the district I live in is well taken care of. City, county, and federal.

    Her district is undergoing gentrification and she needs to spend more fighting for things that will work on a local level instead of nonsensical bills and photo ops.

    You're joking, but in another lifetime, I might have run against her. Now, I'm content to bash her on the Zone. :p:

    OK well, I can still promise to have 150 miscreants at your disposal should you decide to take your bashing to the next level.

    Is there some way for us to vote WG in whether she wants it or not?

    It's a totaly stupid request, but not the reason behind racism.

    That's like saying women are at fault because some men or evil enough to commit rape.

    Don't devastating storms already have "black" names?

    After all, we have Hurricane Obama sweeping across the nation and destroying the very foundations our country was built upon.

    ...or something :)
