Valley Hijinks

I agree with the paper on this.

At least step away till the matter is resolved.

DA should step down pending trial

Cameron County District Attorney Armando Villalobos needs to resign his seat or, at the very least, take a leave of absence until the criminal charges against him are resolved.

The integrity of the criminal justice system of the Rio Grande Valley, one of the fastest growing areas of the state, is at stake.

Villalobos, 44, who is serving his second term as district attorney and recently lost a bid for the Democratic nomination to the newly created 34th Congressional District, is named in a 34-page indictment charging him with public corruption.
