Straw logic for a Texas state house seat … Frozen Deer Semen campaign funds

 Straw logic for a Texas state house seat ... Frozen Deer Semen campaign funds

And of course they got an attorney named Buck Wood to weigh in on whether the practice of donating deer semen (or their equivalent at auction) was legal.

A candidate in the race for a South Texas state House seat has reportedly received $ 87,500 in campaign donations — more than half of which is made up of deer semen.

The Dallas News reported Thursday that Ana Lisa Garza, a district court judge running a primary challenge against eight-term Democrat Ryan Guillen, has received $ 51,000 in in-kind donations to her campaign, listed as individual donations of frozen deer semen straws.

The containers are reportedly a common way for deer breeders in the state to donate to political campaigns. Garza’s campaign has valued the straws at $ 1,000 each.

Buck Wood, a campaign finance and ethics attorney, told the Dallas News that the donations technically were not “in-kind” since the money, not the semen, was given to the campaign, but that it does not raise any ethical or legal concerns.
