|From The Isiah Factor|
Anderson and Hickman turned the tide when they incorrectly blamed Black Lives Matter for contributing to the senseless death of a White deputy by a Black man. They used their joint press conference to jump to an incorrect and unsubstantiated conclusion to appease their predominantly and growing racist base. The horrible death of a law enforcement officer was made worse with a botched investigation. Both have many other deficiencies in their policies, their results, and their character which prompted a change in heart by the Chronicle. This was a contributing factor.
Sullivan, on the other hand, is a mystery. I'm not a political fan of Sullivan, but I give him some credit for some of his results. Some. The Chronicle focused on his opposition to making it easier to register to vote. That alone seems to disqualify Sullivan in the eyes of the Chronicle. They have a very good point.
Personally it bothers the hell out of me that Sullivan seemed to showboat in front of the TV cameras showing up at a local bakery to collect back taxes. It looked like an election stunt. It smelled like an election stunt and it probably was an election stunt. This is a job a Constable who could have easily and should have performed without staging the event with cameras rolling. Eitherway, he lost the endorsement of the Chronicle.
The Houston Chronicle has endorsed Kim Ogg for District Attorney, Ed Gonzales for Sheriff, and Ann Bennett for Tax Assessor. All are excellent choices.
