Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Indicted On Multiple Felonies

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Indicted





Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) has been indicted by a grand jury, multiple outlets reported on Saturday.

The indictments were handed down on Tuesday and will be unsealed Monday. Paxton faces three felony charges: two counts of first-degree securities fraud and a third-degree charge of failing to register with the state securities board, The New York Times reported.

Paxton's office did not immediately return a request for comment.

Paxton is accused of misleading and encouraging investors to put over $600,000 in a technology company without disclosing that he received a fee on their investment and while serving in the Texas House of Representatives, The New York Times reported.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) has been indicted on three charges, multiple outlets reported on Saturday.
Paxton also had a similar arrangement with a financial management firm that was accused of “unethical and fraudulent conduct,” The Dallas Morning News reported in May. Last year, Paxton admitted to the Texas State Securities Board that he improperly did not register as an investment adviser when referring clients, and paid a $1,000 fine.

But failing to register with the board can also be prosecuted as a criminal charge. After Paxton paid the fine, a watchdog group then filed a complaint asking that Paxton face criminal charges, which eventually led to an investigation by the Texas Rangers. A special prosecutor appointed in the case told WFAA in May that the investigation had led to new evidence.

Paxton has sued the Obama administration multiple times on issues such as immigration, the environment and benefits for same-sex couples.

Paxton can surrender and get booked at any of the state's county jails, according to WFAA. He does not have to leave office while facing trial.

Apparently she does. But then again, she is part of the Machiavellian philosophy that says if he's born again, he's saved and if he's saved, his sins are washed away.

He's certainly welcome to make that part of the prison ministry he'll be starting, since he's going to have a lot of time on his hands. Of course he won't have anymore time to sue Obama. I wouldn't be looking for a pardon from Hillary Clinton either.
Thanks from LongWinded

Then again, he may get one from Obama. Who knows?

I don't see this particular crime as a horrendous big deal, no. the dumbass just got caught. it's not like he killed anyone. LW and skews just want to jump up and down and holler when a republican gets busted for something. prisons are full of democrats too.
