- Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton
Who could it be?
Media outlets across Texas quickly outed the anonymous person as none other than indicted Lone Star State Attorney General Ken Paxton, who faces two felony charges of securities fraud. He's also facing another — unrelated — criminal investigation for a 2004 land deal, the Houston Chronicle reported in January.
In a narrow vote, the Texas Ethics Commission voted against allowing someone from the AG's office to accept those donations, the Texas Tribune reported.
Paxton has pleaded not guilty to the securities fraud accusations.
