AUSTIN, TX – Earlier today Democrat State Senator Carlos Uresti was found guilty on all eleven counts against him including securities fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering. After being found guilty of multiple felonies, Senator Uresti still said that he has no intention of stepping down from the Texas State Senate.

Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey released the following statement:

“The corruption of the Texas Democrat Party proves that their party is unfit to govern the state of Texas. After being found guilty on all eleven federal fraud charges, including wire fraud and money laundering, Senator Carlos Uresti joins the list of Texas Democrats who have been found guilty of crimes while serving in office. By refusing to resign, Senator Uresti remains an extreme example of the moral and ethical problems within the Texas Democrat Party.

“Democrat State Senator Carlos Uresti must resign from the Texas Senate. Texas needs people of integrity in every elected position, and I encourage all Texas voters to remember this when they vote in the general election.”
