Campaign Finance Fees

$1,905 of $27,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 59 months
My name is Chris Christal. A few years ago I decided  I wanted to run for State Senate to make a difference. I was running on more equalized education, less corruption in elected officals and an educational approach to drug offenses rather than a repremanding one. Through a series of unfortunate events, I quit the race. Or so I thought.....

A year later, I was served a law suit at work telling me I'm being sued for $25,000. I thought I could clear this up with a phone call since it was for campaign finance reports and I raised NO MONEY. After my first conversation, I realized it was a BIG deal. I finally went to court and was "heard" and received judgment in the mail on 6/9/14 for the amount of 25,000 + attorneys fees. I dont have $25,000, so I've started making payments, but I need to pay this off. I can't run again, my recent attempt at buying a house failed, I can't finance anything until this judgment is satisfied. I realize that it's all my fault, but WITH NEVER HAVING RAISED ANY MONEY, THE JUDGMENT IS HARDLY FAIR. I'm reaching out to the community that I wanted to help, for help.  Please donate whatever you can.

I want to thank everyone that donated and shared. It has taken a great burden off of me. I setup an account to autopay the minimum payment so this can disrupt my life as little as possible. I am working on a fun event to raise some funds as well, so stay tuned. I love y'all!!! HAPPY FRIDAY.

Just a quick update.

I finally got a hold of the Texas ethics commission. They said I have to pay more each month because I can "afford" it. How do they know? They looked in my bank account and my paycheck.

The interest alone on the total amount is $95/month. This is crazy, and I'll likely never get out of it.

Thank you all so much for the donations.

As I have never raised any funds and paying dearly, let's see how this unfolds.

I have left two messages with the ethics commission trying to find
out who to pay, and where to send it. Today makes the second day in a row that I've received no call back. Imagine me, a while back, trying to get help with my case. This is the problem. Maybe I should hire a constable to go in there with the check.
