Lawsuit against Roy Morales

Miya Shay reports:

Roy Morales, who is in the run-off race for City Council at large seat against Melissa Noriega, is being sued by a fellow Republican. And not just any Republican, he's being sued by the Bush/Cheney sign guy! Michael Franks, who is a big time R party printer for a gaggle of politicos, printed $1,700 worth of signs for Roy's LAST council campaign. A loss and a new election cycle later, Morales still hasn't paid him! At least according to court documents. There's a second suit filed as well, for alledged broken promise of giving Franks additional business.

Both suits are in small claims court - Miya has links to the case information for each. Both were filed last week - I'd heard rumors that there was legal action impending against Morales, so this is not a big surprise to me. Make of it what you will.

Oh, and one more thing:

You didn't think I'd let the opportunity pass, did you? Early voting begins June 4 (that's the Monday after Memorial Day) for the June 16 runoff. Your vote will likely count for 50 people this time around, so get ready.
