In the waning days of a campaign, strange things happen. But few are stranger than the actions of Robert Miklos, the Democrat running in Mesquite’s open House District 101. It’s tempting to say he is ‘telling lies’ — in reality, it’s more like Miklos is living in a political fantasy world.

For example, Miklos has a mailer circulating around the district citing Dallas Morning News editorial board quotes putting Republican nominee Mike Anderson in a bad light. (Anderson beat the incumbent in the primary.)

The problem is that none of the quotes are real. Oh, and the Dallas Morning News this last week endorsed Anderson. The Morning News‘ editorial noted that Miklos moved into the district just a year ago.

Whether it’s the desperation or part of some bizarre strategy, Miklos is demonstrating he has no business serving in the Texas Legislature.
