Ethics Complaints Filed Against Tom and Christi Craddick

For former Texas Speaker of the House Tom Craddick and current Railroad Commissioner Christi Craddick, politics is not the only family tradition. It appears they make time for money laundering, too.

Earlier today, Senator Wendy Davis laid out a proposal for the first comprehensive series of debates between Texas nominees for governor in a generation. For more than two decades, Republican candidates have stubbornly refused to allow Texas voters to see a fair exchange of views between candidates. Ideally, Greg Abbott will acknowledge his responsibility as the Republican nominee to move away from highly controlled campaign events and participate in an honest exchange of views for the benefit of all Texans.

Abbott helped donors grab $42 million in cancer research funds and then attacked cancer survivors for calling him out.

Greg Abbott was directed by the Legislature to serve on the Texas Cancer Prevention Research Center (CPRIT) Oversight Board to protect Texas taxpayer money. The cancer research oversight board met a total of 23 times.

A video released yesterday featured four cancer survivors expressing their outrage that the state’s cancer research center (CPRIT) had been exploited by Greg Abbott’s friends and donors for millions of dollars. Their comments demonstrated strength and courage and heartfelt concern for others coping with cancer.
