Following President Biden’s inauguration, Attorney General Paxton released the following statement:
Over the past year, my office has strained under the weight of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our governor, Greg Abbott, has unilaterally re-written laws to favor lobbyists and campaign contributors. The problem, of course, is that Greg Abbott is a Repubican.
With President Biden’s inauguration, I don’t have to play these mental gymnastics anymore. I can grandstand about the rule of law, while acting highly selectively. I’m relieved.
If anyone has any questions, I’ll be with my mistress.
