From Fulton facebook:
There are very clear differences between me and my opponent. I am the only candidate to propose tough ethics reform while my opponent is involved in yet another ethics scandal.
My opponent has been caught in a “Cash For Coverage” scheme after paying for a positive article in a community news magazine.
He paid 380 Guide, a Denton County community magazine, to provide coverage of his campaign by w...riting a positive news article that appeared in the magazine’s February/March 2012 issue.
This “Cash For Coverage” scandal comes on the heels of two other ethics headaches for his campaign. As a Frisco City Councilman, he voted to award a lucrative city contract to a campaign contributor without disclosing the conflict of interest. And he was the target of a multi-point ethics complaint with the Texas Ethics Commission after it was discovered he used a loophole in the law to not disclose the names of financial contributors to his Texas House campaign.
This really is an arrogant disregard for ethics and integrity. While he may be desperate to establish an identity in a community he only moved to in the past few months, it is dishonest and narcissistic for my opponent to pay a news magazine to write and publish a positive news article about himself.
