Guy Houston: Another Richard Pombo?

CCTimes: "Democrats ... point to Houston's unresolved legal troubles in a case involving seniors who say they were defrauded by Houston and his father as a sign of possible ethics problems, an issue that helped defeat Republicans nationwide in 2006.

...critics say he votes lockstep with conservative and business interests.

An analysis of his campaign contributions from the last election appears to support his critics' views. Nearly 60 percent of the $1.4 million he raised came from developers and related industries, and political organizations.


Houston twice voted no on legislation to raise the minimum wage and opposed the state's 2006 global warming bill." (source)
