“The politician with the largest campaign account in Houston and Harris County — excluding self-funded mayoral candidate Tony Buzbee — has $3.6 million on hand. That exceeds the combined sums of Houston’s incumbent mayor and the Harris County judge, and all but ensures this official would be better-funded than any challenger. He has little use for it, however, because he has been dead for three years.”
From the Houston Chronicle, h/t Political Activity Law.
Despite much complaining over the fact that this makes the dead politician’s campaign account, managed by his widow, potentially a powerful player in Texas politics, there is no indication of malfeasance or failure to comply with state laws.
