Do not disturb

3 August 2013

Some people HATE to be interrupted.

On 17 July of this year, gunmen attacked Diana Marroquín — the blonde — while she was campaigning for the Hidalgo State Legislature on the Citizen’s Movement ticket.  Marroquín had tried for a place on the PRD ballot, but state party leaders opposed her candidacy ostensibly not because Marroquín is a transgender, but because she was too much of an “outsider” … in other words, because she’s a transgender.  And not part of the machine.

Hold your own damn press conference, bitch!

The PRD candidate was the brunette, Isabel Godínez Granjero, from a family well-established in the local political scene.  In other words, very much part of the machine. Her brother was recently arrested for being the gunman who attacked Marroquín, whose campaign for the anti-establishment Citizen’s Movement was the victim of dirty trick at best, and violence at worst. by not their political opponents, PAN and PRI, as much as their supposed allies, the PRD.

Following Guillermo Godínez’s arrest for the attack, and based on evidence that other establishment political figures were involved, Marroquín called a press conference to discuss the issue.  Isabel Godínez crashed the conference, and… well… shall we just say, it was one of those situations not covered in Roberts’ Rules of Order?
