Is Ken Paxton The Only Statewide Official Under Indictment In The U.S.?
Our weekly check-in with the Texas Truth-O-Meter.
Ken Paxton is the country’s only indicted statewide official – is that a fact? That’s straight from the Twitter of Justin Nelson, the Austin lawyer nominated by Democrats to challenge Ken Paxton for his position as attorney general.
Gardner Selby of the Politifact Texas fact-checking team has the answer.
The Missouri Governor under indictment just quit. This means our Indicted Attorney General Ken Paxton is back to being the only statewide official in the country under indictment.
Texans can make their decision to fire Indicted Ken Paxton in November.https://t.co/cwVSFn45Mw
