Extreme far right donations enter CCISD race for Peter Lauzon

Well we all knew it was coming. And it came.

Peter Lauzon the Unqualified For Office (UFO) candidate for trustee has accepted a large donation from the Defend Texas Liberty PAC an extreme fair right PAC that has been fielding candidates against moderate Republicans, including Greg Abbott (if you can call him moderate). From the Texas Tribune:

In the Texas House, the biggest intraparty attack on Republican leadership came from the Defend Texas Liberty PAC, led by former state Rep. Jonathan Stickland, R-Bedford. Backed by hard-right donors like Tim Dunn and Farris Wilks, West Texas oil tycoons, the group spent at least $5.2 million from January onward.

Dunn and Wilks were featured in a CNN Investigation. They have contributed over $30 Million to promote gun for all and extreme far right candidates in the Republican primary. They have also contributed to extreme UFOs running for school board.

Lauzon raised a total of $7278 with $5000 from this PAC, $2000 from his own pocket, and $278 from 2 donors in the area.

I’ve said it in the past and I will say it again:

We do not need partisan politics to continue to infect our school board. CCISD is one of the best districts in the state. Our Trustees have challenges just to keep up with the constant pressure put on them concerning school funding and ridiculous mandates on our teachers, administrators, and students. They do not have time for Lauzon’s and Bowen’s political bullshit.

NOTE: Glencora Rodgers also received a donation from the Defend Texas Liberty PAC. She returned it.

    Fucking Citizens United.

  2. […] As expected Peter Lauzon is being financed by an extreme right wing political action committee of the Republican Party. Of his $7278 in donations $5000 came from the PAC, $2000 is a personal loan, and $278 came from 2 individuals. You can read the details here. […]

  3. […] He is funded by 2 billionaires out of Dallas […]

  4. […] knew this was coming. One of the candidates running for CCISD Trustee, funded by 2 billionaires out of the Dallas area and the Harris County Republican Party, has released a mailer not only attacking his opponent […]
