Judge Michael Engelhart of Houston, TX; serial scofflaw

 

The state of Texas presented Michael C. Engelhart with a law license in 1995 after he graduated from the University of Houston Law School.

 

The Texas Ethics Commission Mike guilty of making campaign contributions that were more than the $500 limit in accordance with the Judicial Campaign Fairness Act (JCFA).

 

In one matter,Mike found it acceptable to knowingly violate campaign contribution laws when he made a political contribution to a political committee in connection with a primary election that he knew was in excess of the limited prescribed by the Judicial Campaign Fairness Act (JCFA). The illegal contributions are as follows:

  • 02/10/12: $7,000 to Harris County Democratic Party
  • 07/12/12: $25,000 to Harris County Democratic Party Coalition Fund
  • 08/21/12: $25,000 to Harris County Democratic Party Coalition Fund
  • 10/24/12: $2,500 to Harris County Democratic Party

Subsequently, Mike acknowledged that he made the improper contributions as set forth above.

 

As a direct consequence of his violations of campaign laws, the apologists for Public Official Misfits sitting on the Ethics Commission punished Mike by imposing a complimentary $1,000 civil penalty.

 

And lastly, how is it possible for someone who took an oath to uphold the laws of Texas to engage in such egregious misconduct? Could it be that Mike is intellectually incapable of comprehending the meaning of the campaign election laws?

 

As we speak (ca. March 2017), Mike continues to sit as a 151st Civil District Court Judge in Houston, Texas.
