EXCLUSIVE (...we think?!?): Paxton teases FINAL LAWSUIT(S?!?) AGAINST OBAMA ADMINISTRATION!!! :D
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
2 Timothy 4:7
We suppose we need to start this post with a confession/disclosure: Both of the events to which we will shortly refer are over 24 hours old. To be honest, when we first heard General Paxton mention this, we missed it's full significance. That being said, we can't find any other news reports discussing this...so we suppose it's a de facto exclusive.
We attended two events this week where Attorney General Ken Paxton spoke. On Monday, Wayne Christian was sworn in to his new seat on the Texas Railroad (ie. Oil and Gas) Commission. Yesterday, TPPF hosted a panel related to various acts of intimidation by global warming activists.
At both events, Paxton recounted various legal actions his office has taken against the federal government related to maintaining abundant and affordable energy. We didn't take detailed notes in either event, but we recall him saying that his office has sued the EPA 10 times in the past two years. Several of those lawsuits have been successful and others are working their way through the process.
But here's the most interesting line he used both times: "As Attorney General, my office has sued the Obama administration 21 times...and there's still a few days left."
Like we said, we didn't record his remarks or take detailed notes in either event, but there were at least 200 people in the room the first time and 25 the second time.
We don't know what it means, but there will be three and a half business days next week before the presidential handover.
Bottom Line: Next week could be fun.
