More from the article...

...In his sworn affidavit, process server Ernesto Martin Herrera said he knocked on the front door of Paxton's home Monday morning and a woman identifying herself as Angela opened the door. After he said he was there to serve the state attorney general with legal documents, she said Paxton was on the phone and in a hurry to leave, Herrera wrote.

Herrera said he offered to wait and left his business card with her. ...

"A few minutes later I saw Mr. Paxton ran from the door inside the garage towards the rear door behind the driver side," Herrera wrote. "I approached the truck, and loudly called him by his name and stated that I had court documents for him. Mr. Paxton ignored me and kept heading for the truck." ...

Herrera said he stated that he would leave the documents on the ground beside the truck. Both vehicles then left, leaving the documents where he had placed them on the ground.

In tweets Monday night, Paxton said he was avoiding a "stranger lingering outside my home" out of concern for his family's safety....

The Party of Personal Responsibility...

Of course, State AG Paxton blames the media for reporting what he had done.

Maybe, if he doesn't like the reporting, he should not have run away from a legal service.

Clearly not a real Texan, who would have shot the process server on general principle, especially one named 'Ernesto' who was probably wearing darkened skin at the time. And if Paxton were a lawyer worth his salt, he would have welcomed Server Herrera into his home, offered him some iced tea, accepted the paperwork and fought it out in a court of law, so as to demonstrate and preserve his rights and privileges as a Texan. Or just duked it out with the guy in the driveway, as would have been done by so many in the Lone Star State. Real Texans have no truck with cowards, Kenny Boy...

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton...his wife, state Sen. Angela Paxton...

Why can't these folks get real jobs, be makers, instead of being takers, mooching off of the taxpayers?

How to get a TrumpAHump to (hopefully, possibly) shut-up.

Ask them for their evidence.
