Sid *Sonogram* Miller-How To Profit From Your Campaign in One Easy Step

16 November 2013 at 11:02:27 PM

So... You loan your campaign $10,000 bucks. Your campaign doesn't pay you back till you lose in a campaign last year (that would be the primary race against Dr Mike Jones and J D Sheffield). THEN you have your own campaign pay back the loan.. to yourself, and the payment is $31,000. DallasMorningNews

It’s ethically questionable to be able to profit and/or enhance your own personal financial situation through your campaign fund,” said Craig McDonald, director of Texans for Public Justice, a campaign finance watchdog group. “The campaign contributions from the special interests are going straight into his pocket, and that raises all sorts of conflict issues and ethical issues.”

Oh, did we mention he's running again for Ag commish?

And now a GOP activist has filed an ethics complaint against him.

A GOP activist has filed an ethics complaint against agriculture commissioner candidate Sid Miller for collecting thousands of dollars in interest on a loan he made to his own campaign fund.

Miller, a former Republican state representative from Stephenville, lent his political campaign $10,000 in 2000 at a rate of 10 percent annually. Last year, he repaid himself over $31,000.

The repayment prompted former State Republican Executive Committee member Mark McCraig to file a complaint with the Texas Ethics Commission. It cites a state law passed in 2011 prohibiting candidates from reimbursing themselves for more than the amount of the original loan.
