But this year was different. Governor Greg Abbott called legislators back to Austin this summer from July 18 – August 15 for a “Special Session” to address what Gov. Abbott considered unfinished business from the regular session. Unlike the regular session, there was no moratorium on politicians receiving donations during the special session. They could legally take money from those in Austin seeking to influence legislation. Some lawmakers publicly announced they wouldn’t take donations during the special session, while others remained silent. Several prominent elected officials took donations up until the day before the special session began, and then turned off the flow of money once the session began.

In the last election cycle Mr. Pitcock donated to both Republicans and Democrats. However, his contributions to the state’s power holders were significantly larger than to other candidates and officeholders. This political donation strategy suggests that Mr. Pitcock seeks to facilitate good will from those who have the power to impact his business, rather than to promote one political ideology over another.
