Greg Abbott is one of the worst AG’s in the country collecting delinquent child support
Greg Abbott often highlights and brags about receiving an award from the National Child Support Enforcement Association for his work on child support collection in Texas. What he does not mention is that the award is not an unbiased acknowledgement of proficiency.
While the Supreme Court will allow Abbott’s discriminatory voter ID requirement to stay in place for the 2014 elections, I believe the Court will ultimately strike down the law. The right to cast a ballot freely without fear of discrimination or retribution is the essence of our Democracy, but that freedom terrifies Greg Abbott and his political allies.
Under pressure, Burton lies about 2013 budget funding public schools
Voters don’t have to agree with every policy position held by a candidate. However, fundamental honesty is demanded and is the very least that voters should expect. Senate District 10 Tea Party Republican candidate Konni Burton failed this basic test of integrity.
Allegations against Farenthold could lead to sanctions for violating official code of conduct
Few would mistake Republican Blake Farenthold (TX CD27 – Corpus Christi) as a congressional "mover and shaker" or even a particularly serious Member of Congress. He cuts a comical figure, while often spouting typical divisive Tea Party Republican rhetoric.
Greg Abbott appeared today in Frisco, Texas at a campaign event with Ken Paxton, the Republican nominee for Attorney General who has admitted to felony violations of state security laws. The joint appearance can be fairly seen as him acknowledging and condoning Ken Paxton’s breaking our Texas security laws.
