Democrat House Chairman Busted With Cocaine At Texas Airport Coming From Mexican Border
Why are the people of Texas just now hearing about this when the search warrant was executed on October 29th?
There is dumb… and there is real dumb,… and traveling through an airport with cocaine is REAL DUMB, especially when you are a Democrat House Chairman. Poncho Nevarez was caught with the cocaine traveling back from Mexico on a private jet. Poncho was one of the Democrats that Republican Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen appointed to leadership. Pancho served as chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety.
He also was appointed to serve on the Select Committee on Mass Violence Prevention & Community Safety.
Nevarez has admitted guilt and taken the blame. Somehow, Nevarez has not been publicly arrested or charged. He has declared that he will not seek re-election.
My good friend, Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller has called for Nevarez’ resignation. At the same time he blasted Bonnen and the Republican leadership for their silence. The incident happened on September 6. A warrant was issued on October 29.
Why are the people of Texas just now hearing about this when the search warrant was executed on October 29th? Surely, some of our state elected officials would have been informed of this serious matter. It’s been sixteen days! Why hasn’t Speaker Bonnen removed this liberal Democrat from his Chairmanship. Why was he appointed to this position in the first place?
The Texas Scorecard Reports:
A Democrat chairman in the Texas House, appointed by Speaker Dennis Bonnen, suddenly announced last week that he would not seek re-election. New information reveals the reason why.
According to an affidavit obtained by watchdog group Direct Action Texas, on September 6, an envelope containing “four small clear plastic baggies” of cocaine was found at the Texas Department of Transportation’s hangar at Austin-Bergstrom Airport by DPS officers stationed there.
From there, it wasn’t difficult to deduce who the cocaine belonged to, as the envelope bore the letterhead of Democrat State Rep. Poncho Nevarez, who had flown in on a private plane from his home in Eagle Pass, a city that shares a border with Mexico, earlier that day.
Security camera footage verified that Nevarez had accidentally dropped the drug-filled envelope when transferring from his plane to his car.
It is not yet known what business Nevarez was attending to in Austin that weekend, though it is notably the same weekend that the University of Texas football team played Louisiana State University, a high-profile matchup that attracted many lawmakers. Nevarez, a graduate of UT, was wearing a burnt orange shirt at the time he dropped his cocaine.
In 2017 Nevarez, threatened now-former State Representative Matt Rinaldi on the floor of the House. The incident happened while sanctuary city legislation was being discussed. There were disruptive protests by illegal aliens against the legislation at the time.
As Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety, Nevarez also was responsible for killing constitutional carry legislation. Ironically, this is the exact same committee that oversees the Department of Public Safety. DPS is who filed the complaint and affidavit, as well as the arrest warrant against Navarez.
We all make mistakes. There are a lot of people who get involved in drugs, and cannot seem to escape.
But c’mon…. carrying drugs through the airport? From the border? Pure stupidity.
