So after Paxton threatens the Speaker of the Texas House, they vote to impeach him 121-23. Texas has a Republican majority in both houses of the legislature. I'm glad they're finally impeaching him, but it should have happened years ago. The guy is rotten to the core.

His impeachment trial in front of the Texas Senate is in August. One of the Senators who will be voting on his removal from office will be his wife, Angela Paxton. 21 votes are needed to remove him from office. The Texas Senate is split 19-12 in favor of Republicans.
