"Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton faces impeachment" - Texas Tribune

"Paxton, the state’s top lawyer and one of its most powerful and controversial Republicans, has faced criminal investigations, legal battles and accusations of wrongdoing for years. But after he requested $3.3 million in taxpayer funds to end a lawsuit by former staffers who accused him of on-the-job retaliation, the Texas House General Investigating Committee began looking into accusations of wrongdoing."

Powerful and scandal-plagued lawyers

"The whistleblower lawsuit, and the events that triggered it, offered a vivid glimpse of how one of the most powerful and scandal-plagued lawyers in America—a backer of anti-democratic lawsuits and breathtakingly cruel anti-trans policies—operates behind the scenes. In 2020, a group of staffers in the attorney general’s office—all conservative Republicans—grew alarmed by what they considered a pattern of unusual and unethical behavior from Paxton on behalf of a real-estate developer and major donor named Nate Paul." - Mother Jones

  • "Paxton intervened in an ongoing lawsuit involving Paul, in a way that seemed designed to benefit him. Days before some of Paul’s foreclosed properties were set to be sold off, Paxton also got his office to issue a non-binding legal opinion to block the auction from happening. 
  • Paxton attempted to get the Supreme Court to nullify the 2020 presidential election, which prompted speculation that Paxton was seeking a pardon from President Donald Trump for, well, something
  • Nate Paul was alleged to have done for Paxton was a full floor-to-ceiling renovation, and that Paxton’s wife, Republican state Sen. Angela Paxton, was unhappy with the granite countertops. 
  • The four whistleblowers were not just fired, they were intimidated and smeared by Paxton’s office (one of the terms of the settlement was that Paxton would have to retract those claims)." - Mother Jones
