The gofundme for Hervis Rogers has cleared his bail amount of $100k

Today by Sam Sherman, Organizer

Thank you so much everyone for your donations! This is incredible. I’ve been in contact with Mr. Rogers’ attorneys yesterday evening and this morning. They are working diligently to get him out of jail. Any of the excess money you donated will be transferred into his attorneys’ trust account and will be used to help pay for his legal defense. I’ll be sure to let everyone know when he is home. Thanks again! -Sam

4. Holland Taylor is listed as one of the top donators with $2,500. I think this is

the actor that played Charlie Sheen's mother on 2 1/2 men. She is very funny and has been around for a long time. And she is gay and has been in a relationship with Sarah Paulson for 5 years.

Edit - The top donor with $5,000 is her wife, Sarah Paulson!

7. This is a really pernicious form of voter intimidation.

Threatening people with a felony conviction and years of imprisonment if they make an unintentional mistake in voting. Isn’t there already a woman in Texas serving a 5 year term for an honest mistake?

And I wonder which kind of people are more likely to be convicted and have the book thrown at them?

This could potentially have an incredibly chilling effect on voting, especially among groups more likely to be targeted.

I'm surprised people aren't making more noise about these laws.

10. $100,000 bail?

These people truly are monsters. Could they possibly be any crueler?

Thank goodness for the GoFundMe donations, but it should not have been necessary.

'politically motivated'
Texas AG Ken Paxton's Supreme Court lawsuit to overturn Biden's win could get him disbarred
Peter Weber, Senior editor
June 10, 2021
https://theweek.com/law-and-order/1001379/texas-ag-ken-paxtons-supreme-court-lawsuit-to-overturn-bidens-win-could-get
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) has been under indictment on state felony fraud charges for nearly six years, he's under investigation by the FBI for allegedly accepting bribes from a real estate developer, and his bid for a third term is under threat from Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, who is basing his primary challenge partly on Paxton's legal troubles. Now, The Associated Press reports, Paxton is facing a disciplinary investigation by the Texas bar association.

The State Bar of Texas originally dismissed a complaint that Paxton had committed professional misconduct by petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn President Biden's victory in four swing states. But the Board of Disciplinary Appeals, a tribunal of 12 independent lawyers appointed by the Texas Supreme Court, overturned that decision late last month, ordering the bar to investigate whether Paxton's lawsuit to overturn Biden's electoral win was frivolous, unethical, and filed in bad faith. AP reported Wednesday.

BY KATE MCGEE JUNE 2, 2021
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is continuing to forcefully push back against accusations of bribery made by a group of former senior aides who reported him to federal and state law enforcement agencies because they claimed he improperly helped a political donor in exchange for personal favors.

Paxton fired the four former aides last year, saying they had gone “rogue” and made “unsubstantiated claims” against him. The aides then filed a whistleblower lawsuit arguing Paxton fired them as retaliation for reporting his alleged behavior to federal and state law enforcement agencies.

In an 85-page brief filed Tuesday with the 3rd Court of Appeals, Paxton’s lawyers argue that under state law, a whistleblower must believe someone has broken the law, but the aides only reported that “they expected laws might be violated.” As a result, they argue, the court should overturn a trial court decision denying the Office of the Attorney General’s plea to dismiss because the court doesn’t have the jurisdiction to hear the case. The lawyers have repeatedly argued Paxton cannot be sued under the Whistleblower Act because he is not a public employee.



Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s criminal case to be heard in Collin County, appeals court rules
The case was moved to Harris County from Collin County after prosecutors argued that having the trial there would be unfair because of Paxton's political ties in that region.

BY REESE OXNER MAY 27, 202110 AM CENTRAL
https://www.texastribune.org/2021/05/27/texas-court-ken-paxton/

The lawsuit, now nearly six years old, has been shackled by procedural delays and has not yet gone to trial because of a number of appeals related to where the case should be heard and how much the prosecutors should be paid. The suit has loomed over Paxton for nearly his entire time as attorney general, including during his narrow reelection in 2018. If convicted, Paxton could face up to 99 years in prison.

Prosecutors in the suit claim Paxton persuaded investors to buy stock in a technology firm without disclosing he would be compensated for it. He was a member of the Texas House at the time. Paxton denies any wrongdoing and says the accusations are politically motivated.
