Paxton Donor Targets Special Prosecutors' Fees

Last edited Wed Dec 30, 2015, 07:20 PM - Edit history (1)

MCKINNEY -- A prominent real estate developer has filed a lawsuit seeking to stop payments to the private attorneys appointed to prosecute Attorney General Ken Paxton — the latest twist in the Republican’s securities fraud case.

Jeff Blackard, a Paxton donor, filed the lawsuit in Collin County District Court, arguing that the county was paying too much to the attorneys prosecuting Paxton, violating local rules for such payments.

“This lawsuit seeks to halt a threatened expenditure of public funds that would unlawfully serve to enrich private attorneys at the expense of taxpayers in Collin County, Texas,” says the complaint, filed on behalf of Blackard and “similarly situated taxpayers.”

Blackard says he lives in Hopkins County but pays taxes for two parcels of property in Collin County, along with local sales taxes.

1. Amazing how corrupt and disgusting all cons are.

They lie about everything, always.

They seek to NEVER accept responsibility for their acts.

Purely fucking disgusting

3. Let's hope that they make the developer pay the defendants legal fees

when he loses the case. The Paxton team is desperate.
