"A grand jury has indicted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on three counts of securities fraud, according to multiple media reports.

Paxton is accused of misleading investors in a technology company — by encouraging investments without revealing he was making a commission on them — and, on a lesser charge, of failing to register as a solicitor while he was referring clients to an investment firm, the New York Times reports."

This appears to be a state indictment which means his fate will be decided by the Republican controlled Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. [Texas has two Supreme Courts - one for civil cases and one for criminal cases.]

The case appears to be in Collin County- northeast of Dallas County.  A Tarrant County [Fort Worth] judge has been assigned to hear the case.

Now on a side note - so as not to leave idiots and racists out of the story - "The Rutabaga" is reporting that Paxton's actions occurred while working out of his office in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.  It was in Ciudad Juarez were Paxton honed his skills in public corruption.  Of course any well educated person knows, such as Donald Trump, Anglo Republicans are incapable of wrongdoing unless they studied their craft in Mexico.
