The Texas state bar filed a professional misconduct lawsuit against Texas's attorney general "for attempt to overturn 2020 presidential elections"

Texas Tribune:

It seeks a sanction against [the attorney general], which will be determined by a judge, that could range from a private reprimand to disbarment.

In its filing, the commission said [the attorney general] had misrepresented that he had uncovered substantial evidence that "raises serious doubts as to the integrity of the election process in the defendant states."


[The attorney general] has faced securities fraud charges for seven years now, and more recently has come under FBI investigation after eight former top deputies accused him of bribery and abuse of office.
