In his appeal to stay on the ballot after HCDP Chair removed him for not putting in a valid residential address, Dave Wilson contended that only County Commissioner Jerry Eversole, as his opponent on the ballot, has standing to challenge his filing. Apparently, Eversole was listening.
Eversole’s attorney submitted a letter to the 14th Court of Appeals on Friday in support of Harris County Democratic Party Chairman Gerry Birnberg, who refused to certify Wilson as a candidate after concluding that Wilson does not live at the address reported on his filing documents.
“Wilson called him (Eversole) out,” Eversole consultant Allen Blakemore said when asked why the commissioner entered the Democrats’ internecine fight. “He’s answering an invitation from Wilson.”
All righty, then. What else you got, Dave?
