Texas State Election Code states “A person may not knowingly make or authorize a political expenditure in the name of or on behalf of another” without their knowledge.

A candidate for an open Senate seat in North Texas says a fraudulent donation was made in his name to House Speaker Dade Phelan.

Jace Yarbrough, an attorney and Air Force veteran, was shown on a recent campaign finance report as having sent a $75 donation to Phelan on December 24, just days after he filed to run for the open Senate District 30 seat.

Yarbrough, however, has categorically denied making any donation to Phelan.

“While our team is still gathering information, this appears to be an attempt to smear me with our party’s grassroots,” said Yarbrough.
