When pressed for a reason for his resignation, Torres stated that he'd "never been treated as an employee" under the chairmanship of Frank Morris. When asked who was now treating him as an employee, he did not respond.
Torres' phone call was prompted by negative comments about him and Frank Morris posted on this blog. "I don't use that kind of language," he stated, "and I don't appreciate it being used in connection with me."
"Bob Prepejcal's name did come up as area coordinator for Brownsville, but it didn't happen," admitted Torres.
Torres stated that he and Frank Morris are no longer official representatives of the Donald Trump campaign, but that both men continue to promote Trump and intend to vote for him in November.
"I've been a Trump supporter since '96 when he first mentioned running for President. I've read all his books and was for him since he announced this time," stated Torres.
When asked about Trump's comments that Mexicans immigrants are frequently rapists, drug dealers and bad people, Torres felt those remarks were "blown out of proportion."
"We support legal immigration. Many of those (described by Trump) are from Central and South America and Asia," offered Torres.
Torres also wanted it known that "Frank has no interest in power or being county chairman" and is not "anti-Morgan."
