I don't personally know County Commissioner Joseph Thomas Giusti ("Galveston county commissioner says he's not an Oath Keeper after name published in list," The Daily News, Sept. 9, 2022). I only know he's a Republican.

I am also aware his name was on the leaked list of "Oath Keepers." He says he doesn't want to be a part of all that.

Nonsense.

Gary Scoggin

Once he saw what the organization was about, he got out. Nothing to see here! Move along.

The community has a chance to render judgement on this every single election.

Bailey Jones

People do stupid things all the time. It's what they do about the stupid things they do that counts.

Charles Wiley

Guisti’s not going anywhere, nor should he. Live with it!

Loretta Davis

Comm. Guisti actually listed his membership in Oath Keepers in some of his 2014 Campaign literature. That's 5 years later. He didn't forget that, did he? What is the real truth?

George Croix

Should Joe Biden resign for his association with Robert Byrd!

Ted Gillis

I don’t know Joe Guisti and I’ve never voted for him. If he said he disowns the Oath Keepers organization then we should let him prove it. We don’t want to be a bunch of Joe McCarthy’s about this.

However, this is not nonsense as Carlos states. This is serious and Guisti needs to live up to what he claims.

And we don’t have to “live with it” Wiley. If Guisti is not seen as trustable on this, we can voice our opinion on Election Day as Scroggins has stated.

Yes, people do stupid things as Bailey has pointed out. We see that daily with some of the posts in this forum. So let’s all let Guisti prove himself.

Loretta, your comment about Guisti’s affiliation claim with this group as late as 2014 in campaign materials is very telling of how truthful this guy really is.

Come on Joe, it’s your turn now. Prove yourself to be the kind of guy that people should vote for.

It would hard to convince me though, as you have one of those little “r”’s by your name.

That “r” affiliation worries me almost as much as the Oath Keepers membership.

Carlos Ponce

Ted has a troubling soul.

Ted Gillis

At least I still have mine. Most of you “r”’s have sold yours.

Carlos Ponce

Christian Conservatives have given their souls over to the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in unity with God the father.

Gary Scoggin

Not just conservative Christians, all Christians have. Correct, Carlos?

Carlos Ponce

Well just like there are RINOS, Christianity has CINOS.

Gary Scoggin

CINOs? Maybe so, but if a person says they are a Christian, I take them at their word. And I certainly don’t view their Christianity through a political lens. We may have different Interpretations of the Bible but I am not arrogant enough to say mine is the only right one. How about you, Carlos? Is your Biblical view the only correct one and are conservatives the only real Christians?

Carlos Ponce

I am right with the Lord.

As for accepting someone's word about being a Christian that's between them and God but there's an old adage "If you were accused of being a Christian would there be enough evidence to support it?"

George Croix

Here's a thought...

A container full of rhymes with spit is still that even if it's labeled peanut butter, and even if the one who packed it calls it peanut butter.....

It simply doesn't pass the smell test that fits it's claim.....sometimes, you have to go with the realities in evidence over the claims that counter it...

Ted Gillis

More Mumbo Jumbo from Carlos.

Carlos Ponce

Ted is confusing "Mumbo Jumbo" with WORDS OF WISDOM.
