Texas spent another 22,000 hours hunting for ‘election fraud’ and didn’t find a damn thing – By Hunter (Daily Kos) / June 02 2021
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton remains indicted for securities fraud, a status he has held since 2015 as everyone in the state apparently conspires to slow walk his trial into the next millennium. He has evidently been using the time gained to commit other alleged crimes; as attorney general, his own subordinates have accused him of bribery and other criminal acts, and his own attempts to delegitimize the 2020 elections appear to have been motivated at least in part by Paxton fishing for a Trump pardon for those crimes.
He is the perfect model of new Republicanism by way of Trumpism, a man who really likes to bellow about the rule of law and the criminality of his enemies while skirting the law himself. These are the pissant little twits that Trump’s party would have rule us, that the Fox News propagandists spend countless hours attempting to prop up, and who would head fascism’s home office if the next violent insurrection has more success than his last attempt.
In Texas, however, Paxton is just another member in the statewide Republican attempt to undermine elections under the guise of protecting Texans from a wave of “fraud” that nobody can find, no matter how much money or time Republican racists and conspiracy theorists spend hunting for it.
