Analysis

  • Reynolds has gone more than a year without filing a single campaign finance report. The Texas AG's office has sued him for failing to file reports on his personal finances or his contributions and expenditures. He owes $41,500 to the Texas Ethics Commission; that’s the highest fine on the commission’s delinquent filer list.

  • Reynolds won re-election to his Fort Bend County seat in 2016 despite multiple criminal convictions for illegally soliciting clients. Reynolds filed for bankruptcy in September. He claimed in his Chapter 7 filing that he owes creditors $1.3 million, including $450,000 to a past client who sued for malpractice. His law license was suspended last May.
