Jared Woodfill Was the Chairman of Republican Party of Harris County, Texas
Police Monday afternoon raided the law offices of Jared Woodfill, an attorney and former GOP County Chairman who also served as the spokesperson for the anti-LGBT extremist group that helped kill Houston's Equal Rights Ordinance.
The Houston Chronicle reports a search warrant "as part of a financial crimes investigation" was executed. The warrant says the search was part of an investigation into forgery, fraud, or counterfeit.

"A criminal complaint filed against ex Harris County Republican Party chairman Jared Woodfill in 2017 accuses his firm of taking more than $300,000 from a client's trust account," the Chronicle reports.
Last month a lawsuit against former Texas Republican State Rep. Paul Pressler, who had been Woodfill's law partner, was dismissed. At least one report called the suit a "child molestation" case.
The lawsuit accused Woodfill of conspiring to cover up the abuse, according to the Christian Post.
Woodfill served six two-year terms as the Chairman of the Harris County Republican Party.
