Is an in-law a parent?

Morgan Smith:

Texans for Public Justice says $20,100 the Fort Worth district court judge received from her mother-in-law, Norma J. Talley appears to flout the Judicial Campaign Fairness Act's $5,000 cap on individual campaign contributions and "may have shaped the outcome of the race for the Place 3 open seat." The law excludes immediate family members defined as children, parents, siblings, grandchildren and grandparents as well as bank loans from the limits imposed by the act.

Such a shocking ethics violation! Little ticky tacky technical violations of an increasingly byzantine system of campaign finance rules.
