PACs

Republican Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen has launched a political action committee to help defend the GOP majority as Democrats push to take the lower chamber in 2020.

From Texas Standard:

An Austin man named Kyle Prall is currently in federal court, facing over a dozen charges that range from mail and wire fraud to money laundering. Officials allege he stole over $500,000 by soliciting campaign donations; he created web sites and literature supposedly promoting Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, among others, and then pocketed the proceeds. The allegation may sound outrageous, but the case is not the first of its kind, by any means.
