Frederick Frazier, the Republican candidate for Texas House District 61 facing felony charges related to campaign activities, is now also the subject of an internal investigation by the Dallas Police Department.

Frazier, a former McKinney City Council member who is also a Dallas police officer, was indicted in June on criminal charges of impersonating a public servant, a third-degree felony, and placed on administrative leave.

The two-count indictment followed an investigation of alleged sign-stealing during the Republican primary campaign.

Frazier was accused of impersonating a code compliance officer and instructing a local Walmart to remove the signs of his primary opponent Paul Chabot.

Despite the ongoing criminal investigation, primary runoff voters chose Frazier to be the GOP nominee, 64-36 percent.

A detective with Dallas PD’s Internal Affairs Division confirmed to Texas Scorecard that Frazier is the subject of an active investigation but said he couldn’t comment further.

It’s unclear if the department’s internal investigation is related to the felony impersonation case.

The local Collin County district attorney avoided involvement in that case, citing conflicts of interest.

Texas Rangers investigated the original sign-stealing accusations in March, uncovering allegations about Frazier impersonating a city official on two occasions, in December 2021 and again in February 2022.

A district attorney from a nearby county is handling the prosecution, though the case is being tried in Collin County.

Frazier’s next court appearance is set for November 17.

Election Day is November 8.
