Greg Abbott, Texas AG and rabid tea party loud-mouth, is now apparently threatening a female student who supported Wendy Davis.
This is just disgusting:
Lt. Gov. Dewhurst & Atty. Gen. Greg Abbott Consider Charges Against Student Who Led Eyes of Texas
Leigh Larson, a leader of and organizer with College Kids For Wendy, is now becoming another face of the movement to Stand With Texas Women. Much like Martha Northington, Larson has received a lot of plaudits for leading the "Eyes of Texas" in the Capitol Rotunda at the end of Tuesday night's citizen filibuster.
Now Lt. Governor David Dewhurst may have his eyes on her. She has received notice that the Lt. Governor and Attorney General Greg Abbott may be considering pressing charges on her along with others for "disturbing the peace" and "inciting a riot".
This appears to be motivated by partisan politics and not a bona fide attempt to enforce the law.
This smacks strongly of abuse of power and it would seem to also be an ethical breach - bogus charges to intimidate the student, shut her up and suppress her Constsitutionally-protected free speech rights?
Abbott's twitter stream has been in the past been used to consistently attack President Obama. How can you expect fairness and integrity from a law enforcement official who runs his mouth so publicly and frequently on partisan political issues?
@statebaroftexas - Maybe they can render an opinion as to whether or not these actions are ethical.
