SUGAR LAND, TX – Fort Bend County Republican Party Chairman Bobby Eberle issued the following statement in response to the recent arrest of Taral Patel, the Democrat nominee for Fort Bend County Commissioner, Precinct 3.

“The recent arrest of KP George’s right-hand man and former chief of staff, Taral Patel, is deeply concerning. Patel garnered widespread news coverage (like his former boss) for claiming that racist social media posts were made against him. Now, based on the arrest warrant and much like Jussie Smollett, it appears that Patel used a fake Facebook account to send racist messages to himself and then blamed his political opponents.



“Whether Republican or Democrat, such tactics should be unequivocally condemned by all who value integrity and accountability in politics. This is not a partisan issue, and the good people of Fort Bend County should be able to trust that when allegations are made, they are sincere.



“The constant use of the race card by the Democrats shows a deep disrespect for the residents of Fort Bend County. Rather than discussing and debating the real issues that we face every day, Democrats such as Taral Patel use accusations of racism to divide this county and hide their failed agenda. Fort Bend County residents deserve better leadership than someone who will create a fake account and post manufactured racist attacks — attempting to turn neighbor against neighbor — for political gain.”
