Commissioner Eversole to pay back money

July 13, 2009 8:49:46 PM PDT
13 Undercover has learned the $75,000 ethics fine leveled against Harris County Commissioner Jerry Eversole is the largest in the history of the Texas Ethics Commission. Eversole has also agreed to pay more than $41,000 of his own money to his campaign amidst evidence he violated Texas election laws.

That $41,000 includes almost $10,000 spent on a Florida vacation. The ethics commission report claims Eversole donated items to charity after 13 Undercover exposed his campaign corruption.
