Former lawmaker no stranger to ethics complaintsJune 13th, 2012 at 5:35 pm by Josh Hinkle under Politics
This week, the watchdog group Texans for Public Justice lodged an ethics complaint against former state lawmaker Mike Krusee for allegedly spending leftover campaign funds on himself. But Krusee, who once represented Williamson County, is no stranger to the Texas Ethics Commission.
In April 2008, the commission met to determine whether Krusee had violated the Election Code, allegations stemming from his finance reports in 2005 and 2006:
“The complaint alleges that the respondent improperly reported political expenditures as reimbursements… The complaint also alleges that the respondent failed to properly report, and improperly reimbursed, political expenditures made from personal funds.”
The latest TPJ complaint will now being filtering its way through what will likely be a multi-month process with the commission. A TEC spokesman said the matter is confidential, until a report is released.
