One Republican Hypocrite Sees the Light

Hard to use the "Sore Loser" tag when folks in your own party behave the same way. So one Republican acts...

Former Republican House candidate Eric Opiela has withdrawn his election challenge for the South Texas seat, his attorney confirmed Friday.

Democratic Rep. Yvonne Gonzalez Toureilles was sworn in to office Tuesday but was not allowed to vote until the challenge had been settled.

Opiela, of Karnes City, alleged voter fraud in the election he lost by 853 votes.

By the way, Toureilles after all the recounts, had 51% of the vote, which as we all know, is a mandate.
