This Greek Consul covers a lot of turf!

She also appears to be a woman. According to this email's pronoun choices, for this special occasion she might take a male form, like Hera. Either way, two words buddy: diplomatic immunity.

Are you sure? It is loading when I test it. Anybody else having a problem?

I can see it. But I can't see the violations. I need some help from people who know the election code better than me. I'm up to my eyeballs in other codes.

Not a lawyer but I do have a degree in English and I did teach grammer once upon a time. Lotsa problems with this.

And ... I do know.. it needs a political disclaimer.

It loads fine. BTW, what is the word for whore in Greek? It is certainly appropo in the political sense!

Do you think "her office" is organizing the fund raiser at the county building and on county time? Also makes you wonder who and how she intervened to help

I dunno...looks Greek to me. Will dishes NOT be smashed on election night at the lykos household?

Is it kosher for a foreign government to solicit campaign contributions and endorse a candidate?

Pat Lykos almost looks like a woman.

Federal Campaign Finance Law prohibits foreign nationals from contributing to any federal, state or local campaign. I seriously doubt the Greek Counsel will be making a contribution but probably will be there just to show support. Of course Lykos has been running the DAO like the Greek government has been running Greece, in the ground, so of course they will show support.

Anon 6:45, the Greek word for whore is pronounced "porni". Sorry I don't have a Greek keyboard to type it for you in Greek.

Looks like Hooper wrote it, judging by the facility with the English language.

8:00pm .... now you reference federal campaign finance law. Texas statute does not address that but the feds do ... I bet Ms Lykos ... what is proper Greek salutation for a married woman???? Mamsel? Gramsell? In any event, it's poor grammer,so who wants to go there. They are probably serving Metracal cookies.

Dear English Major and former grammar teacher,
"Grammar" is spelled g-r-a-m-m-a-r.

No wonder Greece is in such crappy shape.

I don't recall any Greek support the Semander family received from Pat Lykos when their daughter was murdered by Coral Eugene Watts. I guess Lykos was to busy chastising criminal justice personnel in her courtroom.
