THE MEX FACTOR :The Honorable

For some strange reasons, our locally elected officials have engaged in legally questionable behavior that only occasionally has concluded with some type of punishment. 

The most recent case occurred in Calexico a month ago when Councilwoman Rosie Arreola-Fernandez was involved in a hit-and-run incident. The councilwoman might think she did nothing wrong because she made reparations after the fact, but from here it looks like her position as an “honorable” council member afforded her some kind of benefit.
