NPT County: Cobos Complaint metastasizes; complaint filed by his lawyers against Commissioner Escobar
Stuart Leeds and Theresa Caballero, the lawyers for El Paso County Judge Anthony Cobos in the ethics complaint filed against him by city Rep. Emma Acosta (read the details here), have filed an ethics complaint against El Paso County Commissioner Veronica Escobar.
They’re alleging the same thing Acosta alleged against Cobos: That (in this case) Escobar used her official authority to interfere with his political activities by asking for an accounting of how much the episode has cost the county, in terms of staff time and other expenses.
That’s basically it, although there’s more detail in the complaint. Read it here: EthicsComplaint-Jun-2009
