Obviously, since the AP didn't mention it, we know which party she is in......"Becky Miller is the mayor of Carrollton, TX. She is Republican.".

Actually, the whole Council is Republican since the town is pretty conservative, so you can't make a distinction there. However, she is more liberal than anyone on the council which makes me believe she would be more comfortable in the Democratic party. For example, she voted against joining the anti-illegal immigration program 287g and she was in gay parade last year. How many Republicans do that? A lot of Democrats do though.

And yes, she is a big-time flake. As are most of her supporters.

This isn't about belonging to a political party. This is about a mentally ill person that does not need to be mayor or dog catcher for that matter.

She's history, kiss her bub-bye.

I hope you're right but I'm afraid there is a really good chance she is re-elected. Many people voted early (many of which would like to change their vote from Miller to Branson). Plus, the Carrollton Firefighters and Police are actively campaigning for her.

The good thing is that there is a really good chance of having a recall election if she does win tomorrow. I doubt she would win a recall election.
