El Paso - A competency hearing for District Clerk Gilbert Sanchez is scheduled to be held tomorrow.  A judge ordered Sanchez to take a psychiatric exam after the District Clerk said he could not help his lawyers in his criminal conspiracy trial.

Sanchez has said he is mentally and physically stressed out by his re-election campaign and the trial.  The runoff election is Tuesday.  He says he is not competent for the trial but is able to be District Clerk.

Hmmm... Not competent to defend himself, but fine to look out for the voting publics' interest? I think not.
