118th District Court Judge Tim Yeats said this morning there is no merit to allegations he misused campaign funds during his 2010 election run.

“A complaint has been filed against me with the Texas Ethics Commission by an individual from East Texas,” Yeats said in a press release this morning. “I deny the allegations made in that complaint. I am in the process of responding to the Ethics Commission concerning the matter. I am comfortable that I have done nothing wrong and the Ethics Commission will find no violations of campaign finance laws once this matter is fully reviewed.”
