Lone Star Reports

Is Ken Paxton holding campaign funds to cover cost of his legal defense?

Ken Paxton has spent most of the 2014 General Election hiding – from the press, from the public and even from most Republican events. He has also done very little campaigning in the form of media advertising or mailings. Nevertheless, Paxton has raised over $2.4 million during the election cycle. He received a $1 million loan guaranteed from an insider friend, Tim Dunn, and Dunn’s PAC, Empower Texas. That leaves Paxton with roughly $1.4 million for use in this campaign. Rather than spending the money talking with voters and advancing his campaign, Paxton has held on to the money.

Over the past year, the Lone Star Project has researched and documented one case after another of Greg Abbott and other GOP officials using their public office to take care of friends, donors and political allies – all at the expense of Texas families.

Abbott, Hawk and other TX GOP officials condone racist comments

It's been nearly 48 hours since the Dallas Morning News exposed racist comments made by Dallas County Judge GOP nominee Ron Natinsky. Natinsky said that African American voters in a Dallas congressional district would be better served if they "spend their food stamp money" instead of voting. From Republican gubernatorial nominee Greg Abbott to Dallas County district attorney GOP nominee Susan Hawk, not a single Republican official has denounced Natinsky’s comments.

Joint appearance signals Abbott approval

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.
