C’mon, El Pasoans are not blind, deaf nor dumb. He is a Coconut and puppet for Wardy, Luther Jones, Escobar and all the other unethical low-lifes that portray themselves as elected officials. A Coconut is a Coward no matter what s/he is called.

How is it this shady sumbich hasn't been indicted? You're hand picked errand boy gets busted but you are clean? Either Cobos is a true idiot and knew nothing or he has dirt on someone.

He was the best GD commissioner we ever had. It will be a sad day when his term expires and the county will likely go down the tubes.

Me thinks "El Cobo" protesto too mucho !!

The FBI raided his County Court because they smelled smoke: A smoken Rat!

Pray he stays away from further Politics in El Paso...there maybe some openings in Socorro.

Cobos is mean spirited and shady. Who cares what other politicians have to say about him. His alliance with both of his chiefs of staffs and caballero and Leeds sums up the quality of his contribution to the county of el paso and the community. It is disappointing that The Feds have not moved faster, therefore subjecting all of us to his shenanigans for 4 long years.

Wow, you negative types are sure in abundance. No wonder many people think so little of this town. I wonder how many of you have contributed toward making this town better. You're mean and petty and think you know plenty. You probably think that if someone is trying to do something for you, they're trying to do something to you. Small-minded is too kind of a descriptor. Perhaps getting a life would help. See how infectious you are? Now I'm getting mean and petty.

OK, well maybe El Pasoans are not very open minded to good things that Cobos did, maybe they just think everyone is BAD! c'mon El Pasoans try to support your leaders not only are you all the worst drivers but now you all sound like ignorant and easily mislead by the media and the rest of the non tax paying people., good luck to Escobar she sure is going to need it!!!! instead of her people looking at the difference she is going to make they are going to be looking at all the negative things she will do, but hey this is El Paso!!! home of the most ignorant,rude and closed minded people! why not try to remember YOU voted for these people.... oh wait you all cant think for yourselves!!! media does it for you!!!

Why would they call if they are going to arrest him? They know where he works and where he lives!
