Bar complaint filed against Texas AG Ken Paxton

 As you know by now, Rudy Giuliani's law license was suspended in New York and Washington DC as a result of his involvement in the frivolous lawsuits seeking to overturn the election.  See here and here .

Now comes news that a complaint similar to the one filed against Giuliani in New York has been filed against Ken Paxton in Texas.  Paxton, who is under indictment for securities fraud and also facing allegations from his own staff that he took bribes and abused his office, filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of the United States seeking to invalidate the electoral votes in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Wisconsin.  The Supreme Court dismissed the suit almost immediately for lack of standing.

The complaint against Paxton, filed by 31 legal professionals including several past presidents of the Texas state bar, alleges that Paxton violated the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct by filing a frivolous suit, making false statements of fact and law to a tribunal, engaging in deceitful conduct, and failing to uphold the Constitution.
