Attorney General Ken Paxton is facing a new legal hurdle after the State Bar of Texas filed a lawsuit against him on Wednesday. The lawsuit seeks to punish Paxton for his failed attempt to cancel the 2020 presidential election on false charges of fraud.
In the wake of Paxton’s “dishonest” appeal to prevent President Biden’s victory, the U.S. Supreme Court has asked a Texas bar court in the Dallas area to impose a specific sentence on the state’s top lawyer. After being accused of professional misconduct, Paxton is now one of the most well-known lawyers at risk of losing his license because of his involvement in former President Trump’s campaign to undermine the legitimacy of Trump’s defeat.

As part of a lawsuit to overturn Biden’s victory, Paxton has been accused of “misrepresenting” information before the Supreme Court. Trump backed her in the case. The Supreme Court has dismissed the case and Trump’s judiciary has found no evidence of election-related fraud.
After eight of his top deputies told the FBI in 2020 that the attorney general was using his office to help a wealthy donor, Paxton drew a tremendous amount of initial challengers before winning the nomination on Tuesday. An ongoing federal investigation was triggered by the resignation or dismissal of eight employees who accused him of bribery and other crimes.
