Elisa Chan – whose former staffer recorded and released her statements about homosexuals to the San Antonio press – has sent out a giant 9″ by 12″ postcard full of innuendo and unsubstantiated rumors that Texas State Senator from District 25, Donna Campbell, had problems with her staff during the 83rd Legislature. Chan’s problem is that Campbell’s former staff members are not talking – or releasing audiotape.
Chan’s mailer also claims that Senator Campbell and her family have not “moved to” the District and have a “Homestead” near Houston. That is false: I visited the home she rents in New Braunfels in 2010 and several times since. The Campbell family, like so many in the last few years, hasn’t been able to buy a new home because they have been unable to sell their old house. A little bit of research allowed me to check the County tax records on that house. They don’t claim a “homestead exemption.”
Yes, Elisa Chan is different:
- she could not win the loyalty and confidentiality of her employees,
- she quit as San Antonio City Council member midterm,
- she personally profited from toll roads,
- she donated $500 to “Friends of Hillary (Clinton).”
