The Abbott Files
Over the years, Lone Star Project has exposed Greg Abbott's extreme partisanship, failed leadership and overall mean-spirited approach to public office in Texas. Our LSP reports paint a picture of an incompetent attorney general who pursues his own selfish political agenda while systematically rewarding and protecting his own political patrons.
The Real Greg Abbott has used public service and taxpayer funds to advance himself at the expense of Texas citizens.
The Real Greg Abbott:
- Failing to protect Texas jobs
- Answering to the same special interests who have supported Rick Perry
- Looking the other way while donors receive millions in CPRIT grants
- Supporting efforts to suppress minority voters and reduce minority choice representation
- Spending millions of taxpayer money on outside legal counsel
- Releasing millions of Texans’ Social Security Numbers, exposing them to potential identity theft
- Using law enforcement grants to harass senior citizens who vote
All of the Lone Star Project’s reports on Abbott are available below:
Greg Abbott clearly won’t apologize for appearing publicly with his “blood brother” Ted Nugent. Apparently, Abbott and his campaign team see Nugent’s admission that he was “addicted” to sex with underage girls as no big deal.
Actually, Texans don’t need an apology. They need the top law enforcement officer in the state to do what he has sworn to do — investigate sexual predators, gather all evidence and hold offenders accountable.
Greg Abbott is currently under fire for campaigning with and defending Ted Nugent, a washed-up rocker who’s admitted to sleeping with underage girls and manipulating their parents to give him access to their daughters. The Dallas Morning News condemned Abbott’s embrace of Nugent and said, “This misstep calls Abbott’s leadership and judgment into question …”
The Lone Star Project Video below contrasts Greg Abbott’s claims that he’ll protect Texas women and girls – with the words of his pal Ted Nugent – who brags about his abuse of minors.
When Greg Abbott insults our state’s border region and Latino communities across Texas by comparing them to a “third world country,” he is simply revealing what he truly believes. Abbott’s hostility to our state’s growing Latino population and its increasing political power isn’t new - it’s been expressed in his public record for years.
After learning Wendy Davis pulled in $12 million in just six months, Greg Abbott hit the panic button.
Audio obtained by the Lone Star Project proves that Greg Abbott is on-board with the hateful smear campaign against Wendy Davis.
For weeks, Greg Abbott has allowed a collection of right-wing hacks, online bomb throwers and paid campaign consultants – including his New Hampshire-based chief strategist Dave Carney – to front for him by orchestrating a series of false personal attacks against Wendy Davis and her family.
Earlier today, the Texas Democratic Party called on Rockwall County Clerk, Republican Shelli Miller, to close down the illegal campaign fundraising operation she is running within her official office to benefit a February 1st event featuring keynote speaker, Attorney General Greg Abbott.
Luke Macias is a Republican consultant with a long list of GOP clients and causes. Tied closely to the far right group, Empower Texans, which has endorsed Greg Abbott, Macias appeared at the group’s January 16th meeting in Fort Worth.
Talking candidly to a voter there, he gave a cruel and ugly assessment of why he believes Abbott will win.
Greg Abbott's ongoing contention that he is somehow obligated to continue the extensive and expensive school finance fight – by defending an unconstitutional school funding process and a $5 billion cut in Texas public school money - is simply false.
