*Phil King of Weatherford is a Crook* News O Day-Off to the Superbowl on Lobbyist Largesse

8 February 2008 at 10:40:27 AM

From the FW Star Telegram via Jobsanger

State Rep. Phil King acknowledged Wednesday that he accepted two free tickets to the 2004 Super Bowl in Houston from a utility industry lobbyist.

The Weatherford Republican, chairman of the House Committee on Regulated Industries, watched the game from a luxury suite of CenterPoint Energy, a Houston energy company. King told the Star-Telegram in 2005 that CenterPoint did not pay for his ticket and that he did not discuss legislative business during the game.

However, a Texas Ethics Commission report filed in 2004 by CenterPoint Vice President Scott E. Rozzell shows that Rozzell spent $876.30 on King and his son during the game. Rozzell, whose company routinely has business before King's House committee, said "that sounds right" when asked whether part of the expenditures was for Super Bowl tickets.

Asked about the Ethics Commission report Wednesday, King acknowledged that he had not paid for the tickets.

The article goes on to point out that, gee whiz, isn't that a coincidence, last night King was to be feted at the home of, let's guess, ROZZELL. for a fundraiser.

As jobsanger says

King has been bought and paid for by the companies he is supposed to be regulating. It doesn't get more unethical than that. The good people of Weatherford should be embarrassed by his actions.They should vote him out in the upcoming election.

P.S. Our Texas State legislator is not Phil King but Sid Miller. I read out Phil King because he's such an astonishingly corrupt example of Texas politics.
