In 2009, King was fined $1,300 by the Ethics Commission, which found evidence of some conversion of political funds for personal use, for dry-cleaning expenditures (which are not reimbursable from political funds). King made reimbursements to his campaign. King attributed the issue to ambiguity in the reporting rules.
A 2008 article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram found that the president of AT&T had written a letter urging employees to help re-elect King, then head of the House Regulated Industries Committee. King had said he did not know of any AT&T workers who were campaigning for him.
