Texas City Where Nearly Every Public Official Was Arrested Also Has Gross Black Tap Water Now

 

Dark days in Crystal City, Texas: Less than a week after Mayor Ricardo Lopez was arrested by his own police department at a city council meeting, residents are reporting that black water is running out of their taps. Not dark or murky water—black water.

 

Crystal City denizens began sharing photos of the latest sign of their personal apocalypse on social media Wednesday evening, according to local news network KSAT. According to a notice published by the city the following morning, the water ran dark because renovations on the municipal water tank caused sediment to leak into distribution lines. Residents are advised to boil their water before drinking it.

We began following Crystal City, a town of about 7,500 near the Mexican border, after all but one of its top public officials were arrested by the FBI. Mostly, they were accused of taking bribes from a local gambling ringleader in exchange for allowing his illicit business to operate and snuffing out his competition. Then, on Tuesday, the mayor was arrested again after allegedly scuffling with a local woman at a city council meeting.

it does seem a trend in cities run by Dems Burgold 

I think the problem is bigger and more insidious than labels though. I think there is a willful negligence brought about by major debt and budget tightening. There aren't enough watchdogs, the safeguards are thinner, and states are so afraid of businesses leaving that they let them get away with murder... or at least cancer.

I'd say corruption and incompetence.....your paid watchdogs did you no good so you want to add more  of them.

Tough for three people to cover adequately a state as big as Texas. At least Texas gives them a moped to scoot around the state with, but inspectors have to pay for water testing and gas out of pocket.
