Indicted Ken Paxton Runs Away From Abortion Funds Subpoena

“Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton fled his home Monday in a truck driven by his wife, state Sen. Angela Paxton, to avoid being served a subpoena, according to an affidavit filed in federal court.” [Texas Tribune, September 26, 2022]

Avow Texas Political Director Caroline Duble issued the following statement:

“It’s rich for Ken Paxton to use the excuse of fear as he ran away from being served a subpoena from Texas abortion funds, who are trying to regain the ability to fund their clients.

Fear is what he’s subjected trans kids and their families to, fear is what Texans who don’t want to remain pregnant feel when they can’t get abortion care in their state, and fear is what undocumented Texans feel every time their lives are used to score cheap political shots.

I think the word Ken Paxton was looking for was cowardice. Leave it to the indicted attorney general to do what the indicted attorney general does best in the face of accountability — run away.”



SB 8 bans abortion as early as 6 weeks and puts a $10,000 bounty on anyone who helps someone get abortion care. Now more than ever, we need unapologetic abortion rights advocates to lay the groundwork to defeat anti-abortion lawmakers.

Chip in to organize Texans to restore abortion access in our state. The organizing we do today determines the gains we make in 2022.
