Former San Antonio, Texas Mayor Ivy Taylor filed for unemployment benefits not long after she lost her June runoff election.

Taylor made her claim through the Texas Workforce Commission, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Taylor was contacted by the city to tell her that her claim would be rejected and that it would be better if she withdrew her claim. Taylor reportedly did try to withdraw the claim, but it wasn't allowed by the Texas Workforce Commission.

Texas' Unemployment Compensation Act does not allow elected officials to qualify for benefits.

Although Taylor was a nonpartisan officeholder, she is registered as a Democrat.
