Paxton moves to get court to rethink bad ruling on election fraud prosecution | WulFlu & border news – Pratt on Texas 1/4/2022

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a motion asking the Court of Criminal Appeals to reverse its odd decision that the Office of Attorney General cannot be the prosecutor of first resort for election fraud cases. The A.G.’s motion makes it quite clear that the CCA’s specific reasoning doesn’t fit with a hundred years of Texas Supreme Court Precedent. Given the two courts are equal in standing, I wonder how a conflict between them is handled.

Our Lone Star story of the day is sponsored by Allied Compliance Services providing the best service in DOT, business and personal drug and alcohol testing since 1995.

The border continues to be out of control and Biden re-nominates Harris County Sheriff Gonzalez to head ICE – it likely is not going to pass muster in the Senate for good reasons.

In the WuFlu stack we get another example of how Governor Abbott doesn’t lead but waits until there is momentum on an issue to which he can attach himself. The Houston Chronicle continues to be among the worst tabloid style newspapers in the country when it comes to the Chinese virus.
