Mayoral Campaign Manager Was Arrested For Failing To Appear In Court

Mayoral Campaign Manager Was Arrested For Failing To Appear In Court

Bob Cornelius was arrested in Albuquerque on two warrants for failing to appear in court for traffic violations in Mora and Harding counties. He was ticketed for driving on a suspended license.

The campaign manager for mayoral candidate Ricardo Chaves was jailed recently in Albuquerque on two warrants for failing to appear in court for traffic violations last year.

The campaign manager, Bob Cornelius, was booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center on July 24 and was released the next day, MDC records show.

Cornelius, 37, wound up in jail after being stopped by an Albuquerque police officer on the afternoon of July 24. He was following a car in front of him too closely. Cornelius was ticketed for following too closely and driving on a suspended license, according to the citations. The officer apparently ran a check on Cornelius and found the warrants from 2016 for failing to appear in court in Mora and Harding counties.

Cornelius, who lives in Cedar Park, Texas, told ABQ Free Press that after being arrested he paid the traffic ticket from Mora County. He also said that he wasn’t aware that his licenses had been suspended because the notices had apparently been sent to his old address in Tatum.

“If you have a ticket that is past due they suspend your license,” Cornelius said. “I don’t remember getting a letter saying that my license was suspended. If they mailed it to the Tatum address, I haven’t lived in Tatum since high school.”

But court records show that Cornelius was ticketed in Harding County on May 27, 2016 for speeding and driving on a suspended license.

About a week later, on June 4, 2016, he was ticketed in Mora County for driving on a suspended license.

Cornelius failed to appear in court on all three of those tickets and warrants were issued for his arrest.

Cornelius is the CEO of 90 Degrees Agency, an Austin-based consulting agency that specializes in marketing, media strategy and creative design “for start-ups, small businesses, corporate, and political clients.”

    Bummer about Mr Cornelius, he’s an ok guy and I’m sure this will all sort itself out, but isn’t the real news here that APD actually pulled somebody over? (I kid, I kid! (sort of))

    Let me get this straight:

    Old dude forgets to pay a speeding ticket in the middle of nowhere, gets pulled over in one of our many glorious construction zones, pays off the $1600 (not $2k, do your Googling) that the ticket amounts were, and suddenly this is A Big Deal? Oh no! A politico is human?

    Also? I’m going to guess your blogging software doesn’t come with a grammar check. Last I knew, run-on sentences were considered poor form in a journalistic arena.
