    People are dieing wtf is going on why is that devil in office.

  5. Yet the state voted for him as AG even as he is facing charges and now this. WTF is wrong with these voters?

  6. He’s a criminal in desperate need of a pardon. I hope they file the charges on Jan 21st.

    • @WARRIOR OF GOD Your just reading the title and think your smart, but your too lazy to actually watch it. This is my business btw, so STFU and go away if you don’t like it.
      Your irrelevant cult needs help packing. So why don’t you all just go cry together over your failures somewhere else and get over it?
      Also, teach each other that you Ivans using all caps only shows off your stupidity much more prominently.

    • @WARRIOR OF GOD art of the deal

      @David Collett NOPE JUST YOUR RUN OF THE MILL CORRUPT POLITICIANS….SMH

    • @WARRIOR OF GOD because protecting access to voting, when the pandemic would complicate existing systems is important to protecting democratic processes. Increased early voting polling locations, extended hours, some 24/7 and full weekend access to early voting did something amazing in Harris County. More people voted, with more ballots cast in early voting than all votes cast in the 2016 election. During a pandemic! I live in Harris County, where for years, voting was complicated and sometimes confusing. Election day comes, have to vote in your polling precinct. Drive down to the school to learn your precinct was not open this year and was combined with another precinct or precincts. Can be frustrating and people don’t have time to play hide and seek with the ballot. Much better this year!

      @Jason Woods YEAH…MADE IT SO MUCH EASIER FOR THE DEMONRATS TO STEAL THE ELECTION DURING THIS SCAMDEMIC…YAAAAAY!!!! SMH

  7. Texas should just mind their own business on how other states oversee their voting process…
    Maybe every state should start to sue Texas on how they try so hard to suppress the voters rights….

    • And let’s not forget, Washington DC lost out on 700 million dollars of funding itself because they don’t have representation like every other state. just imagine what the founding fathers would say about that one.

    • @Gary Albert With Elon Musk moving to the Austin area, HP headquarters moving to Houston, and several more, there may be more Dems or Independents moving in to roll blue. Today, Mayor Turner just announced new company coming to the Spaceport in Houston. About 1000 new aerospace jobs.

    • Texas is getting close to 50/50 state. That terrifies the GOP, so instead of trying to reach out to moderates they make it more difficult for poor people to vote with the convenience that the rural and suburban voters have.

    • @Plen122 the founding fathers wanted DC to be separate from the states for some reason. It would likely take a constitutional amendment to change their status.

    • @Richard Head unless I’m mistaken I believe that the founding fathers wanted D.C. to remain as a neutral ground for all states to meet to conduct government business…
      I may be wrong but I believe that’s what they had in mind…

    When is he going to be prosecuted? Freaking crook

  9. Isn’t that the same Texas AG who got laughed out of the Supreme Court, which included 3 t’rump justices? 🤔
    Still working for that t’rump pardon, I see. 😂🤣

    • Oh, he’s fully qualified for a Trump pardon. He’s a total sleazebag. No worries.

    • Paxton, as well as any attorney general, has the right to reallocate Covid funds as they see fit. And from the sound of it, it sounds like he’s got a great case. And back to his law suit… You’re forgetting that there are more people in Texas than any other state, besides California. If Texas wants to annex the votes of a smaller state, as their right, why would a court stand in their way? Texas has more than double the votes than Georgia. By sheer volume of population you would think that the numbers allow a state like Texas to accept or reject Georgia’s vote tallies, especially in this election. Paxton should perhaps replace Barr. He’s earned it.

      becky it does not matter how large one state is compared to another, it doesn’t give it the right to change the outcome of another state. Would you like for California to do that to Texas? Of course not! Texas is trying to rob the votes from another state and delegitimize the results that were completely legal.

    • @Arnulfo Alvarez Would I like it if California did that? Sure. But are they? No. That’s why Paxton is taking this into his own hands. Pretty soon you all (ya’ll) will be speaking Texan. And thanking us too!

      @soaringvulture is he Trump’s brother from another mother? Such a loser!

  10. 😅he twist himself in a pretzel with that explanation… sounds like my five year old trying to explain why he took an extra cookie😅😅

    • “Well.. being that it was the last cookie in the jar, instead of watching my family fight with each other for it, I went ahead and sacrificed myself by eating it. That way, the brunt of the fight, anger & hostility is aimed towards me & I accept the responsibility & those consequences. Why fight amongst each other when you can unite against a common enemy?
      THAT is why i ate the cookie mother.”

  11. Isn’t that AG in Texas is under investigation why is he still working and being pay by our tax dollars

  12. Ken Paxton looks just as repulsive on the inside as on his outside.

  13. republicans have no shame they want to win even if they have to sell their mothers

  14. This guy needs to be in jail period.

  15. It’s time to clean house, vote everyone out of office and with trem limits for every one in government

  16. Can’t trust a guy who has to turn his head sideways to look you in the eye.

  17. This is what a devil looks like.

  18. This is a pitiful, guilty man begging for a pardon, and willing to punish his own people to get it.

  19. Paxton only knows what he wants. The people aren’t of concern to him.

  20. He looks as sleazy as he actually is. I mean he’s just repulsive.
