Texas Attorney General Candidate Ken Paxton Responds To Ethics Violations, Accusations Of Breaking Federal Law [AUDIO]
On the Monday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Ken Paxton, candidate for Texas Attorney General, spoke with Chad Hasty about the recent developments with his campaign.
Paxton ran into a few ethics issues last week when he was fined $1,000 by the Texas State Security Board, as well as some issues with his personal financial statement. Paxton explained that the $1,000 fine was for not being correctly filed by the State Security Board, and on the financial statement, there were several charity boards he served on that he forgot to list. Paxton assured that both issues have been resolved, and said that he would handle any future mistakes the same way he handled these - as soon as possible.
"All I can say is that we found out we made a mistake, and as quickly as we could, we resolved all this stuff in a really short period of time. we resolved it, we did our best to fix it, and I guess what I want people to know is if we make a mistake, we're not going to run from it. We're going to turn into it, and take care of any mistakes that we make, and that will be true while I'm Attorney General. If there's something we need to fix, we'll fix it."
Paxton also denied allegation made by his opponent, Dan Branch, that Paxton does not have enough experience to run for Attorney General. Paxton fired back by accusing Branch of running away from his voting record, as he has voted in favor of some unpopular policies. He also pointed out that Branch does not have any major conservative groups or endorsements backing him.
