Norma Chavez Hates Puppies and Children, says police report

This is not a good newspaper lead to have featuring you, especially if you're a state representative.

Neighbors say State Rep. Norma Chavez made their 10-year-old cry twice in about [the past] (sic)year, shouting profanity-laced threats to have the little girl's puppy taken away.

"She really lost it," said Javier Marquez, the girl's father, who has lived in his Central El Paso home behind Chavez's family for decades. The Marquezes have filed two police reports, including one Monday night, complaining that Chavez became enraged about their howling young Husky, Lola.

Chavez said the family is lying and that she wasn't in El Paso on Monday night. No charges were filed against Chavez, and police said the complaints were not investigated.

"I'm a public official," Chavez said. "I know how to conduct myself."

According to the police reports, Chavez screamed swear words at Javier Marquez, his daughter, Christina, and his 73-year-old mother, Delfina, and came pounding on their door late at night. El Paso Police Department spokesman Chris Mears said the family filed complaints on Nov. 24, 2006, and on Monday.

The report from last year, he said, alleges Chavez, yelling over a rock wall separating the two yards, swore at Christina Marquez and told her she would have authorities come to take away her dog.

To be fair, Rep. Chavez has provided evidence that she wasn't even in El Paso on Monday evening and that she intends to file her own complaint against the family for making a false police report.

Chavez produced a Southwest Airlines itinerary that showed she was scheduled to fly to Austin during the time of the alleged incident Monday. Airline officials said she was issued a boarding pass for the flight, and a receipt Chavez provided showed she earned mileage credit for the trip.

That's pretty good evidence, but it's interesting that "scheduled to fly," "issued a board pass", and "earned mileage credit for the trip" dance close to but don't actually confirm that a person took a flight. It's hard to tell with fights between neighbors exactly who is telling the truth, but regardless, what a weird story.

Oh Norma, how I've missed you (0.00 / 0)
Norma Chavez...well there is a blast from the past.  It seems like just yesterday I had to have daily dealings with that lil' Sherman tank.  

About 6 or 7 years ago I was an associate in a law firm down in HELL Paso, TX--during the whole Tigua Indian gaming case--I got to be on the receiving end of that crazy woman's boarder trash tirades on a day to day basis.

From personal experience, I'm sure that's exactly what happened.  They say we get the government we deserve...well, El Paso...you asked for it!
