Frederick Frazier, the Republican nominee for HD61 open (Likely R), has been indicted by a Collin Co. grand jury on two felony counts of impersonating a public servant. He was placed on administrative leave by the Dallas police department.

The charges arose from a Texas Dept. of Public Safety investigation into the removal of campaign signs belonging to Frazier’s runoff opponent Paul Chabot at the request of a city “code inspector.” Frazier defeated Chabot, 64%-36%, in the May runoff election.

“This accusation that a public servant impersonated another public servant with less power and responsibilities defies logic and will not hold up in court,” said Robert Rogers, an attorney representing Frazier.

He faces Democrat Sheena King in the general election.
