State Rep. Kino Flores -- who has been in some hot water lately over ethics allegations, business deals and a land purchase -- takes on the press and some of his critics in a 5-minute video interview with the Rio Grande Guardian.

From the South Texas Scandal blog, where we saw the clip first:


In the video, Flores answers some of the charges by contending that he’s a simple victim of Speaker politics, hard work and selfless service. “I serve for three reasons: for money, more money, and more money for my district,” he explains.

Even if they came in third, his constituents will be relieved to hear that they at least made the list.


Below is the video from the Guardian's YouTube channel.
