    Dear Ms. Hamilton,
    We (Referee PAC) received a request from a voter in the area covered by a recent Conservative Republicans of Texas mailer (see link below). The voter would like us to peruse the reference source materials on which the claims within the mailer are based. Since this is relative to an election coming soon and the mailer was recently distributed, we assume that Mr. Bart Standley (and associates) have all these references ready at hand. Due to the sheer size of candidates/office holders involved, he (they) can take the weekend assembling a package. We would like to receive this package by the end of the business day on Tuesday (January 21, 2014) to evaluate the contents.

    Thank you for receiving this message on Mr. Standley’s behalf (as we discussed on the phone), and we look forward to hearing from Mr. Standley soon.

  2. No response was received. Mr. Standley, the state Ethics Commission’s point of contact for “Conservative Republicans of Texas” PAC, was posted on the “Wall of Shame” for the PACs failing to verify the material published in the mailer. A certified letter (tracking #70132630000089275223) was mailed to Mr. Standley advising him of this decision with the request that he contact us if he would like to appeal.
