Ousted Bexar County Democratic Party Chairman Dan Ramos is still fighting.
Ramos recently filed a formal complaint with Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lemberg for “alleged violations of the election code, constitutional and Texas state laws and civil rights laws.” In a hand-delivered letter dated May 22,, Ramos accused a laundry list of local officials of conspiring to remove him from office and deny him his day in court. That list includes District Attorney Susan Reed, which is why Ramos says he filed the complaint in Travis County.
“I’m going to do what I believe is in the best interest of those taxpayers that are being (expletive),” said Ramos during a phone interview from his home.
Ramos won election in 2010 after an embezzlement scandal left the party nearly broke. Last May, he was ousted for misconduct and neglect of duty after riling party faithful with his management style and offensive remarks about gay Democratic activists.
