Complaint Filed Against Meeker

At press time, the Chronicle learned that former political consultant and lobbyist Mike Blizzard – who says he's a supporter of City Council Place 1 incumbent Lee Leffingwell but not affiliated with his re-election campaign – has filed a complaint with the Texas Ethics Commission against Leffingwell's challenger Jason Meeker and Meeker's former campaign treasurer Rick Culleton. The complaint alleges that ads placed in the past two issues of the Chronicle by Culleton violate state campaign laws. For more details, see our News­desk blog at austinchronicle.com/newsdesk.
