Ah, Texas!

Where is Texas AG Ken Paxton these days? Avoiding a subpoena, it seems:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton fled his home to avoid being served a subpoena Monday in a federal lawsuit filed by groups seeking to help Texans receive out-of-state abortions, court filings show.

Paxton ran from the garage of his home in McKinney, Texas, into a truck driven by his wife, State Sen. Angela Paxton, while refusing to accept the documents from a process server, according to an affidavit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Austin.

The Paxtons drove away without taking the documents, which were left on the ground by the house, process server Ernesto Martin Herrera wrote in the sworn affidavit.

The subpoena ordered Paxton, a Republican, to testify in hearing Tuesday morning in a civil lawsuit in which multiple Texas-based nonprofits want to resume helping pregnant residents obtain abortions in other states. That includes paying for out-of-state abortion providers and providing financial aid to those seeking abortions, as well as providing interstate travel to those providers.

Because that’s what an AG does: avoid the law. Got it.

      Delusional, whackjob, talentless hack, old man, looser, has-been, emotionally stunted, trust fund babies with a comical comb-over, and who wears more makeup than a drag queen? Check.

      Nope. Nothing that I can find.

  3. One of my favorite webcomics (Not normally so overtly political) has a good one about Bold Sir Robin Paxton who bravely turned his tail and fled like a common Ted Cruz

    If I understand the law, if the server delivers the subpoena then what happens next doesn’t matter – that subpoena has been delivered.
    I don’t know if there is variation in state laws.
    If the process server left it there and swore out an affidavit, my guess is he knows the laws and the deed has been done, whether Brave Sir Paxton held it in his little hands or not.
