More on Dick and the Harris County Democratic News

OK. I’m officially obsessed.

Recently an organization called the Harris County Democratic News released a mailer with pictures of Black elected officials such as President Obama, State Representative Senfronia Thompson, and others with the back endorsing people of color except for one, Eric Dick. Some have wondered who paid for this mailer and maybe I found out that it is only one person, the white one.

According to the City of Houston website, there is only 1 contributor to the Harris County Democratic News and that is Eric Dick for a total of $8500. The address of this news is 1918 Freeman Houston Texas 77009 and owned by Philip Bryant. The HCDN is not registered with the Texas Ethics Commission.

This is definitely strange since there is no political disclaimer so filing an ethics complaint will be challenging.

    Looks like the Chronicle picked up this story today as well. They note that Dick served as Bryant's attorney, among other connections.

    Do the “Harris County Democratic News” and the “Harris County Black Democratic News” both exist?

    Do the “Harris County Democratic News” and the “Harris County Black Democratic News” both exist?Yes, sort of. They have a website but I have never seen an email from them. No.
