Did the drunk guy, speaker?, step down?
Also, if Ken Paxton swallows a bullet tonight the world will be a better place
What's the impeachment process like from here?
No, he was drinking Coors so Texas GOP gave him a pass.
Nah. He’s fine as far as republicans in Texas go. Could be a lot worse.
Wouldn't Lone Star be the smarter play.
Bought a case once. It was terrible
He’s going to have to pay lawyers sooo much money to defend him going forward. Wouldn’t be surprised if he declares bankruptcy in a few years.
His wife is a senator?
2/3 have to vote to convict?
When the two worst people disagree with you about the third worst person
He’s a carpetbagger on his fourth marriage. Typical family values republican
Why would Ted care?
All of the house conservatives putting out statements on Twitter because their crazy MAGA base is pissed at them
It’d be a real shame if this was the start of some serious chud on chud chicanery
Man you gotta be like the most corrupt person on the planet for the fucking Texas house to impeach you
Wasn't a big secret either. Did the drunk speaker push it to change the subject?
Looks like fifth marriage - fourth wife.
They only did it because he came out and said the speaker of the house should resign due to being drunk. They don’t care one bit about his actual corruption.
Ah, that makes a lot more sense. Paxton has said so much awful shit about minorities but the second he says it about one of them that's a bridge to far.
I really just want to see the whole fucking group just start gnawing each others faces off like a pack of zombie hyenas.
They really did it because Paxton settled for $3.5m with 4 whistleblowers who worked under him in the AGs office and then told the legislature to pay it
Don't we have an absurd cash surplus? Is it being used for anything other than fuel to burn children's books?
HB100 is a full on fucking war on public education and I’m glad it failed and anyone who voted for it can jump into a wood chipper
Dude literally has a Tammy One and Tammy Two.
“In summation, I am a cuck of the highest order”
Because he's been on the wrong side of literally every issue, and needs to keep that perfect record.
Lol he is fuckeddd
How does the legal fee situation work? I assume the state pays for these two big dicks. Does it also pay for paxton's attorneys, since the issues stem from his actions as AG?
basically, is our surplus just going to fund the legal battle of one of the state's criminal employees?
just ordered 5 tins of popcorn
I don’t know the answer but the state should pay for both sets of lawyers
This murr guy’s grandpa was Governor and I assumed he was a shithead but he might actually take his responsibilities seriously.
I’ve probably posted this a dozen times in the last five years but it only gets better as the world turns.
I don’t see anyone carrying water for Paxton. What would be the benefit of it for them? They’re just gonna get another Republican AG to replace him so why go to bat for a shithead who’s in a ton of legal trouble?
Yeah Paxton is done. He might actually be headed to prison
Oh I don’t believe they’re in any way doing it because they think it’s the right thing. But at least they’ve rid us of Paxton who is uniquely corrupt and unqualified.
Abbott’s new appointment is the same guy he made Secretary of State when Ruth Hughs wasn’t election deny’y enough for his taste.
Wouldn’t they just be able to use what’s going to come out in the impeachment hearing for the actual criminal trials?
Finding that there’s a floor somewhere, way they hell down there, is nice.
I was hoping this would at least bankrupt the fucker
All he had to do was ask his West Texas dominionist donors to pay his legal fees instead of saying the legislature should do it and none of this would’ve happened.
His criminal prosecutions probably will. This is going to uncover a ton of shit that he will probably be criminally charged with and his 8 year old security fraud case will probably proceed as well.
Don't threaten me with a good time.
