Complaint filed with the Texas Ethics Commission for blatant disregard of State law
Today Matt Beebe filed a complaint with the Texas Ethics Commission addressing the fact that Representative Joe Straus has placed illegal campaign signs within District 121. This blatant disregard for one of the most straightforward rules of political advertising in Texas shows the increasing arrogance within Representative Straus’ campaign.
Sec. 255.007 of the Texas Elections Code is crystal clear that the following notice must be written on each political advertising sign:
“NOTICE: IT IS A VIOLATION OF STATE LAW (CHAPTERS 392 AND 393, TRANSPORTATION CODE), TO PLACE THIS SIGN IN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY OF A HIGHWAY.”
