The San Antonio Current reports:
As legal battles intensify between Gov. Greg Abbott and municipalities who push back against his order banning local mask mandates, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is asking Texans to rat out local officials.

The tweet also offers a link to the AG’s list of local entities that have defied Abbott’s order. As of early Thursday afternoon, the tally now includes more than 70 purported violators, ranging from those in urban centers — Bexar County and Houston ISD, for example — to largely rural Lasara ISD and Nueces County.

Somehow, Ken Paxton — the indicted felon looking down the barrel at actual prison time — has failed to learn the expression “Snitches get stitches.”
It’s OK. I’m sure his cellmate will explain it to him.
