This right here is just classic!
El Paso, Texas County Commissioner Willie Gandara Jr. was arrested late Wednesday on federal drug-trafficking charges. Few details have been released, but according to a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) spokeswoman, the investigation involves multiple agencies.
Ok a county commissioner was selling drugs, why is it classic though!? This is why!
Back in September 2011, Gandara harshly criticized drug legalization in an official statement:
Legalizing drugs is the coward practice of combating cartels, it is an insult to our men and women in law enforcement, and the laziest form of parenting our children and youth about the effects of drugs.
Nice, he was pushing prohibition to protect his enterprise.

Because the real reason you become an elected politician is so you can build an enterprise and make it illegal for everyone else!
