Ken Paxton thinks any attempt to accurately represent the will of the full population of the State of Texas is outrageous because he knows that such a vote would not only unseat him and his White Nationalist cronies currently running the state.
Attorney General Ken Paxton today asked the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn a district court’s injunction permanently barring Texas from enforcing its amended voter ID law (Senate Bill 5). The Legislature passed the amended law to comply with a prior 5th Circuit court ruling. In a separate filing yesterday, the attorney general asked the U.S. District Court in Corpus Christi to stay its ruling while the appeal proceeds.
Wednesday, a district court granted a permanent injunction against Texas’ voter ID laws, defying the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), which asked the court to end efforts to overturn the law. In a filing with the court, the Justice Department stated it was satisfied Senate Bill 5 “eradicates any discriminatory effect or intent” and expands voter identification options. – texasattorneygeneral.gov
However, federal courts have blocked the legislation and Ken Paxton himself is likely to end up in jail. Ken Paxton is crony capitalism personified. He certainly doesn’t deserve to be our attorney general.
