A re-election celebration is underway in Pod 2 of the Montgomery County Jail after inmate number 232573 claimed victory in Texas House District 27. That inmate is known as Rep. Ron Reynolds, D-Missouri City, to the people on the outside.
Reynolds was unopposed in the race for District 27 and the latest vote totals show Reynolds garnered 47,305 votes in Tuesday's election.
Reynolds was booked into the county jail on Sept. 7. He's serving a year-long sentence after a 2015 conviction on five misdemeanor counts of using a middleman to chase ambulances in order to solicit clients for Reynolds law firm.

Country’s going to Hell in a hand basket.
He is a Democrat. You can tell that because if he was a Republican the title and each paragraph of the article would include the word “Republican.”
James Michael Curley (D) was elected to an office while in a jail cell——MANY years ago.
Boston-—Dems don’t care——it’s all about votes.
At least he’s not dead, like Senator Mel Carnahan (D-for-Deceased).
That’s Dems for you, they will elect jail birds (this guy) and people who diss not only the people but the state they want to represent (AZ-Sienema).
Or like this Republican in Nevada.
District 27 will get what it deserves.
After a spate of legal troubles in recent years related to his personal injury law practice in Houston lawsuits resulting in multiple costly settlements, criminal convictions and the suspension of his law license state Rep. Ron Reynolds has filed for bankruptcy.
Court records show the embattled Missouri City Democrat owes creditors more than $1.3 million, including $700,000 to former clients who were awarded money after suing Reynolds for keeping their portion of legal settlements.
In May, for instance, a Harris County judge awarded Nancy Calloway $504,000 in damages after she sued Reynolds for malpractice, claiming he improperly kept some of the settlement money owed to her in a case involving her daughters traffic death. Reynolds bankruptcy filing details that Reynolds is indebted to Calloway for $450,000.
Hes on the hook for another $450,000 to medical providers and imaging centers, more than $3,000 in unpaid tolls and $15,000 owed to the Texas Ethics Commission. Reynolds is behind in filing his campaign finance reports to the ethics commission. Records show he hasnt filed since before the March 1 primary election.
They need to throw the key away and don’t let a locksmith near the door.
I voted for a dead man for Soil and Water Supervisor once.
I guess he was well-positioned to examine both soil and water.
