Texas AG Ken Paxton says state bar plans to sue him for challenging the 2020 election | Ap


AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said Friday the state bar plans to sue him for filing a lawsuit that challenged President Joe Biden’s 2020 election win.

The State Bar of Texas has reportedly been investigating a complaint that accused Paxton of ethical misconduct for filing a “frivolous” lawsuit at the U.S. Supreme Court that sought to invalidate the results in four key battleground states. The bar would not say Friday whether any disciplinary action against Paxton is pending.
