I thought that when the trial of former HPD Captain Mark Aguirre ended in an acquittal that I wouldn't have anything more to say about the K-Mart Kiddie Roundup. Thankfully, that's not so:
Minutes after having the infamous Kmart raid wiped from his record, former Houston police Capt. Mark Aguirre said Monday that he is considering running for City Council.
"Essentially, I've been dealt a lot of lemons and I'm going to make some lemonade," Aguirre said on the criminal courthouse steps. "And it's going to be sweet."
But he stopped shy of making an official announcement, saying he will decide by Aug. 1.
Aguirre denied Monday that he was seeking revenge by running for office, saying, "I need a job."
He discussed his possible run for office after state District Judge Carol G. Davies granted an order to expunge his record in the Kmart case.
