Today Ken Paxton was in court to be arraigned after he plead not guilty to felony securities fraud on Monday.Then something weird happened.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton left his arraignment hearing Thursday in Fort Worth in need of new counsel.
State District Judge George Gallagher granted a motion by defense attorney Joe Kendall to withdraw from the case.
I mean, it can’t be good if your lawyer quits in the middle of an arraignment.
The judge says Paxton has until September 3rd to find a lawyer.We can assume that Paxton either stole his lawyer’s fountain pen, or just flat embarrassed himself so badly that even a lawyer was ashamed.
Geeze. You’d think he’d know that much from watching teevee.
But, when arrogance meets haughty, bad things happen.
“Shockingly, Paxton’s deceit against the public and record of demanding the white collar treatment continued today. Paxton attempted to move all further hearings to Collin County, his home county, and ban all cameras from the courtroom. Once again, Paxton is trying to keep the public in the dark about his crimes and dodge the press. This is unacceptable.
You know, I’d almost feel sorry for Paxton if he hadn’t already admitted that the committed the felony. Nah, I wouldn’t. He’s the creepiest guy in Texas.
