Burnt Orange Report
FEC Complaint Filed Against Randy Weber Over Illegal Contributions

The Lampson for Congress campaign has filed a formal complaint with the FEC against its opponent Randy Weber for taking more than the maximum amount from seven donors. According to his FEC filings Weber took over $22,500 in excess contributions which brings his actual cash on hand total down to $32,540 from his initial report of $55,040. Lampson’s report showed over $420,000 in cash on hand. Weber’s campaign contends that it does not need to correct the report or return the money until after the election.

Randy Weber - A Record Of Messin’ With Texas Women

This week the campaign for Republican Congressional candidate Randy Weber held its first Women for Weber event, so its appropriate to highlight some of his record on woman’s health.

The event was billed as an opportunity to:

[Hear] Randy discuss his plans to get women in small business working again and share his experience in the Texas House where he passed landmark legislation in human trafficking and fought to balance the budget.

Having worked on legislation that helps to end human trafficking is laudable, but it does not excuse a record of proudly cutting funds for and access to woman’s healthcare.
