About a dozen police officers responded to a call about an alleged riot in progress in a Southwest Side neighborhood this morning.
Former City Councilman and Texas House District 117 hopeful Phil Cortez was speaking to members of the media inside his home, where he alleged that his opponent in the Democratic runoff, lawyer Tina Torres, doesn’t live in the district.
Outside, meanwhile, the “riot” consisted of about a dozen pro-Torres protesters, who were chanting that Cortez shouldn’t spend his time keeping tabs on his opponent.(from the Express-News Newswatch blog)
