Texas congressman calls on state attorney general to resign

Texas congressman calls on state attorney general to resignA Republican congressman from Texas became the most prominent member of his party to call for the resignation of the state’s Republican attorney general, Ken Paxton, after Paxton’s top deputies reported him to law enforcement for alleged crimes including bribery and abuse of office. Rep. Chip Roy, who was previously Paxton’s second in command in the attorney general’s office, said in statement Monday that his former boss must step down “for the good of the people of Texas.” The call for Paxton’s resignation came days after seven senior lawyers in his office sent the head of human resources a letter saying they reported the attorney general to “the appropriate law enforcement authority” for potentially breaking the law “in his official capacity.”
