This is not Mexico' Chambers Co. commissioner under fire for what he posted on KHOU live stream


CHAMBERS COUNTY, Texas — A Chambers County commissioner is under fire for comments he posted on a KHOU 11 live stream on Monday.

The Facebook stream was of Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo updating the media on the ITC Deer Park fire. During the press conference, Hidalgo spoke in both Spanish and English. After she addressed the media in Spanish, Chambers County Commissioner Mark Tice commented, “She is a joke. English this is not Mexico.”

1. I'd say contempt of court charges are in order here.

He should have to at least apologize to the judge.

3. True, although

Despite the terms "Court" and "Judge," the County Commissioners' Court has no judicial function, and although the County Judge presides over its meetings, the County Judge does not render judicial rulings. The Commissioners Court is just the title given in Texas to the county government, and County Judge the title given to the head of county government.[9] This body is responsible for administration of the county, controlling the county tax rate, the budget for its responsible departments, and exercising oversight over subsidiary boards and commissions.[7][10] The County Judge presides over meetings[8] but has no veto power,[11] Reviews and the court makes decisions by simply majority and is quorate with three voting members (except for levying tax where four members are required).[10] Consequently, a County Judge is primarily the chief administrator for the county, effectively the chief executive officer,[10] who exercises only limited judicial functions (varying between counties), though retaining the authority to conduct marriages and to conduct administrative hearings.

2. He really ought to know better

Anyone who’s heard the Austin Lounge Lizards play “ Anahuac” knows that Chambers County’s reputation for wisdom is, um, “shaky.”

4. I guess a history lesson is needed for Mark Tice


Texas belonged to the Mexicans and Native Americans before the white man came and took it away from them by force.
