‘Texans for Texans’ PAC actually based in Georgia

Everything’s bigger in Texas: belt buckles, hairdos, Stetson hats — even political action committees.

A new group combines fundraising efforts for nearly every Republican member of the Lone Star State’s delegation, according to a new FEC filing. The souped-up PAC is called “Texans for Texans.” Couldn’t be any more Texas. If it spoke, it would have a twang.

But here’s one distinctly non-Texan aspect of the new organization: it’s based in Georgia. Athens, to be precise. Which is a good thousand miles or so from Austin.

According to the “statement of organization” filed with the FEC, the group’s mailing address is in Athens, Ga., the same place where its treasurer and designated agent are located (neither of whom returned the Loop’s calls).

So, maybe don’t mess with Georgia, either?
