Glenn Beck-esque Council Member Helena Brown Forced Into Runofff Against Brenda Stardig

Controversial District A council member Helena Brown has been forced into a runoff against Brenda Stardig, a former holder of the seat.

With 97 percent of the precincts reporting, Brown had 38 percent of the vote and Stardig 29 percent. Mike Knox had almost 20 percent.

Brown needed to get more than 50 percent to avoid a runoff.

She is a Tea Party favorite with some odd political connections we looked at in a July 2012 feature called "Who's Behind Helena Brown?" Her Glenn Beck-esque speeches during council meetings about such things as the United Nations seizing control of Houston development have left her colleagues baffled.
