Spending your campaign donation to Houston City Council Member Greg Travis

You might get the idea that I do not like Houston City Council Member Greg Travis. I don't.

Back in 2008 a couple of us reviewed the spending habits of State Representative John Davis. We found he had spent tens of thousand of dollars of his campaign donations on personal items including a pair of $1500 custom made boots. He eventually had to pay a hefty fine and refund the donations to his campaign. He was one of many we found. (MANY!)

So, I was interested in what Greg Travis was spending his donors money on. In his end of year report for 2020 he spent $11,833. What was interesting was his $2000 donation to Trump/Pence campaign. So for those who are donating to Travis just be aware who your money might be going to.
