A constable in South Texas is accusing his challenger in next year’s election, a local police chief, of sending text messages to his cell phone containing pornographic images of transgender women.

Constable Robert Lopez claims Primera Police Chief Joe Rodriguez was trying to set him up in the event his phone records become public.

But Rodriguez denies that, saying he intended to send the images to his cousin but mistakenly sent them to Lopez. Which we might believe if it weren’t for the fact that in 2007, Rodriguez was terminated as an officer with the Rio Hondo ISD after an investigation into searches for adult web content he allegedly made from district computers.

In any case, we’re pretty sure “she-male fetish porn” — which ValleyCentral.com is using to describe the images — is considered offensive.
