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:
Prominent Americans from both parties—including Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter—have taken time this week to be part of the moving tribute to former President Lyndon B. Johnson, recognizing his courageous work to win passage of the U.S.
Every campaign has occasional scheduling problems. Sometimes events or appearances have to be cancelled for a variety of legitimate reasons.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but this one came at a much higher price for Texas taxpayers. When the Lone Star Project posted the above image last week—one of Abbott's front groups falsely claimed it had been photoshopped. That is simply not true. Instead, it came from Greg Abbott's high-dollar vanity video project.
At a press conference in Weslaco today, Greg Abbott is “unveiling his Educating Texans” policy. Perhaps he can educate Texans further by answering a few very basic questions:
For almost three weeks, the Lone Star Project, the media and state political candidates have all been discussing equal pay– and what we can do to make sure Texas women earn a fair day's pay for a fair day's work.
Greg Abbott is taking one hit after another on equal pay. Now the damage from his failure to address the substance or the politics of the issue is spreading to other Texas Republicans.
Republican Party of Texas Executive Director Beth Cubriel yesterday tried to defend Greg Abbott’s refusal to support equal pay for equal work in Texas.
