Texas AG Rebuked About Politics and Nonprofit Organizations

Ken Paxton Says 'Overthrow' Put Joe Biden in White House Instead of Trump –  NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Last month, I posted about Ken Paxton and his pursuit of a nonprofit behind the "crisis" at the southern border.  He’s the Texas AG pursuing higher office by protecting us from hordes of migrants via his investigation of Annunciation House, a religious charity that houses and feeds migrants.  Among other human beings I’m sure, but it’s just that most hungry and cold people showing up lately are central American.  Court records show that the AG issued an administrative subpoena on February 7, 2024, and when Annunciation House said it would reply in 30 days, the AG demanded it respond within 24 hours, not no stinking 30 days.  Annunciation was like, “we are just trying to feed and house unfed and unhoused people, bro. Leave us out of the politics.”  Annunciation asked a judge to quash the subpoena, calling it harassment.  Well, that got the AG's back up and he responded with a pleading accusing Annunciation House of orchestrating JFK’s assassination almost. A Texas judge is not having any of it, especially not the politics:

In the case at hand, the last, actual, peaceable, non-contested status which preceded the pending controversy was Annunciation’s House right to exist as a non-profit entity and conduct business in the State of Texas.  The Attorney General’s efforts to run roughshod over Annunciation House, without regard to due process or fair play, call into question the true motivation for the Attorney General’s attempt to prevent Annunciation House from providing the humanitarian and social services that it provides.  There is a real and credible concern that the attempt to prevent Annunciation House from conducting business in Texas was predetermined.

After which, the judge said the case will proceed in an orderly fashion consistent with due process and “don’t make me pull this car over again.”

:-) It’s good to see that at least some in Texas still believe in due process.
