As part of our ongoing Monday Morning Campaign Update series, Jad and Kevin talk about the financial information gathering process Texas candidates are subjected to.

Since Kevin is experiencing this process first hand (as a candidate for the State of Texas House of Representatives in District 46), he was a little surprised to see how much personal financial disclosure there was.

It’s pretty likely the case that establishment candidates are fully aware of how to diversify their
finances as to avoid the disclosure process as best they can. Newcomers, however, have absolutely no chance in being able to do this.

If you’re paying attention, this is really just another cog in the election apparatus.
