A Tale of Two Impeachments

A Tale of Two Impeachments

When you look at the facts surrounding the impeachment trial of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – it makes sense. Since taking office in 2015, Paxton has been beset by a series of scandals. He remains under indictment on securities fraud charges and faces an additional federal investigation after former staffers accused him of accepting bribes and abusing his office. It was his request for $3.3 million in state funds for a settlement with those whistleblowers that prompted the state House GOP to impeach Paxton earlier this year. Compare that to the Wisconsin GOP’s threats of impeaching Justice Janet Protasiewicz and you will quickly understand how insane and unprecedented what they are trying to do actually is. We spend the whole hour breaking down what the GOP is trying to do, how they could get away with it, and what it would mean for democracy in Wisconsin.
