KTRK-13’s Wayne Dolcefino continues his reporting on County Commissioner Jerry Eversole’s questionable ethics.
In his latest report, Dolcefino looks into “charitable” contributions from Eversole’s campaign fund, contributions that allegedly resulted in personal gain for Eversole (an ethical and legal no-no).
The full report is posted here.
UPDATE (11-29-2007): The Chronicle‘s Bill Murphy reports that the Harris County DA is looking into Eversole’s campaign finances:
The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has launched an investigation into whether Precinct 4 Commissioner Jerry Eversole misused thousands of dollars in campaign contributions for his own benefit, District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal said Wednesday.
The inquiry will focus, in part, on collector-quality guns and a Florida vacation Eversole bought at charity auctions.
The probe was prompted by stories about Eversole’s work habits and campaign spending aired by KTRK (Channel 13) in recent weeks. A story by KTRK reporter Wayne Dolcefino questioned whether Eversole benefited from auction items purchased with campaign contributions.
Eversole defended the charity purchases during an interview with the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday, although he has refused to discuss the accusations with Dolcefino.
