Can't wait to find out what this is all about.
Delgado is currently running for a place on the 13th Court of Appeals, and multiple sources close to the investigation said the judge was detained at the Falfurrias checkpoint while on his way to a campaign event outside the Rio Grande Valley.

How many MSM sources will leave out that he is a Democrat in the headline?
Dozens of FBI agents descended on the offices of Delgado’s 93rd State District Court and his home in Edinburg about 4 p.m. Friday. Assisted by Texas Rangers and Hidalgo County Sheriff’s deputies, the agents could be seen removing plastic bins from his home near the intersection of Schunior Street and Depot Road.
It’s unclear if agents removed anything from his office at the HidalgoCounty courthouse. Courthouse officials blocked access to the facility’s second floor, where Delgado’s court office is located. FBI spokeswoman Michelle Lee confirmed agents were conducting law enforcement activity at the courthouse and said one person had been arrested.
