It seems that Phil King loves to break the Texas Ethics Commission rules for campaign spending. To see exactly how he spent $448,000 in the last two years check out his filings HERE.
Some highlights brought to us by Bay Area Houston:
His gas purchases are over $9000 including fill ups at Randalls for over $100 each. (That must be a hell of a big gas tank.) Plane travel is over $11,200. $45,000 for “Accommodations expense”, over $10,000 for “meeting expenses” and over $2700 for “office meals and refreshments”.
But the most interesting is his “Public Relations” bill of over $97,000. This includes $4990 for “Public Relations” at the Capitol Gift, $5200 to Retriever Sporting Clays Inc for “Public Relations”, and $14,000 for Kevin Brannon for “Public Relations” . By the way, Kevin Brannon is a political fundraiser, not a “Public Relations”.
