Zoom in and notice the similarities of these web pages. If you are not familiar with the wealthy, idyllic suburb of Southlake, TX and its influence across the nation, you will want to be. As you can see, Francis Howell Families has modeled their PAC after Southlake Families. When presented with the similarity here, an active Francis Howell Families leader confirmed their organization had consulted with the Texas group by phone.

Southlake has since come under federal investigation for allegations of discrimination.
