Statement from Lone Star Project Director Matt Angle
"Greg Abbott helped create the scandal at the Health and Human Services Commission and shouldn't be allowed to hide behind the work of the new task force. Abbott needs to explain his own negligence and failure to do his job in the first place.
"Today corrupt politicians are keeping their fingers crossed. Senator Joan Huffman’s self described 'scheme' known as the Corruption Protection Act ensures that politicians who break the law are able to get away with it. As a former prosecutor, Sen. Huffman should be ashamed of herself. She understands better than anyone that she is protecting wrongdoers, not Texas taxpayers."
