"Texans for True Mobility violated no state campaign laws when it concealed the identity of contributors who underwrote advertisements bashing Metro's transit expansion plan before the Nov. 4 referendum, Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal said Friday." The DA claims that the group was educating the public rather than calling for a "no" vote on the referendum. The DA received contributions from group members for his election campaign in 2000 and his re-election campaign this year. A civil court lawsuit and a complaint to the Texas Ethics Commission are still pending against the group.
