Ken Paxton is a name that has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Elected as the attorney general of Texas in 2015, Paxton has been embroiled in a series of scandals and allegations of corruption that have rocked his political career.

Despite the controversies surrounding him, Paxton managed to win re-election last year. However, his troubles are far from over. The House of Representatives in Texas is now considering the possibility of impeaching him, which could potentially lead to his removal from office.

The move towards impeachment comes following a number of accusations against Paxton. He is alleged to have abused his power by intervening in a case involving a wealthy donor and also in another involving a company that employed a friend of his. Additionally, he is accused of bribery and of providing preferential treatment to his associates.

While Paxton has denied all of the allegations against him, his accusers remain adamant that there is significant evidence to back up their claims. Moreover, his association with the Republican Party in Texas has been strained, with some members calling for his removal from office.

If Paxton is impeached, he may have few remaining allies in the House of Representatives chamber; and this could be a decisive blow to his political future.
