Another Hillary Clinton donor fraud gets busted.
Mauricio Celis was indicted on Friday. He has donated more than $415,000 to Democratic political campaigns since 2002.
The Nueces County Grand Jury returned felony indictments today against 36 year old Mauricio Celis.
KIII reported on the four indictments:
1. falsely holding oneself as a lawyer
2. impersonating a public servant
3. state jail felony theft
4. aggravated perjury
Maurico Celis is, of course, a major democratic donor to candidates Hillary Clinton and Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill.

A major contributor to Democratic causes and political races was indicted Friday on charges of falsely holding himself out as a lawyer and impersonating a public servant.
Mauricio Celis, a Corpus Christi businessman, has a controlling interest in the CGT Law Group of Corpus Christi even though he is not a lawyer.
Now, he’s being accused of practicing law without a license. Texas law prohibits anyone from owning a controlling interest in a law firm unless he is a licensed lawyer.
A Nueces County grand jury on Friday indicted him on seven counts of falsely holding himself out as a lawyer, a third-degree felony. Each count stems from separate incidents in which Celis was listed as an attorney, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times reported in its online edition. Celis’ business cards, letterhead and his firm’s Web site identified him as an attorney licensed in Mexico. One business fax sheet stated he was licensed in Washington, D.C., and California. Celis also signed a settlement document as an attorney. He told Police Chief Bryan Smith he was licensed in Mexico, according to the indictment.
Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott also has sued Celis for allegedly practicing law without a license…
Celis also was charged with impersonating a public servant, a third-degree felony, for flashing a Duval County sheriff’s badge in an incident near his Corpus Christi home.
In that case, police reported that a naked woman ran from Celis’ home to a convenience store, claiming she had been in a hot tub and groped against her will. Celis quickly followed her into the store, wearing a bathrobe. He flashed a sheriff’s deputy badge from a nearby county and told police at the store that he would take custody of the woman, police said.
A woman getting groped?
Captain’s Quarters has more on his favorite democratic candidates including Claire McCaskill, Hillary Clinton, and Ken and John Salazar.
The website for CGT Law Group International, Celis’s law firm, appears to be making a few updates after the news this week.
