Chairman Hinojosa Releases Statement on Paxton Impeachment Vote May 25 AUSTIN, Texas -- Today, Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa released the following statement regarding the unanimous vote by the Texas House Committee on General Investigating to issue Articles of Impeachment against twice-indicted Attorney General Ken Paxton: “Ken Paxton is a liar, a fraud, and now, as nonpartisan and Republican-led investigations have found, a criminal caught red-handed multiple times during his tenure as Attorney General.
