Ken Paxton fled his home to avoid being served with subpoena

Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton fled his house Monday, jumping in a pickup with his wife at the wheel, to avoid contact with a process server delivering a subpoena from a pro-choice group suing the state, the Texas Tribune reports.

A process server showed up at the door of Paxton’s house Monday morning, telling the woman who answered the door he needed to speak with Paxton.  She told him Paxton was on the phone; he responded he would wait, he reported in a court affadavit.

An hour later, as the process server stood at the front door, a black Chevy Suburban drove into the driveway at the side of the house, and the server saw Paxton come out of the house about 20 minutes later.  Paxton ran back into the house from the garage before he could be served.  Minutes later, Paxton’s wife exited the house, got into the SUV, and positioned it by the back door. 

Ken Paxtoned dashed out the back door like a man on fire–or at least, hastily–and got into the SUV, avoiding contact with the process server, with his wife gunning the engine and jumping over the neighbor’s fence and a cute dog name Flurfles…. or, like, really quickly out the driveway, but not before the server yelled at Paxton that he was served and left the document on the ground.  The Paxtons drove off without picking up the subpoena.

UPDATE 9/27/2022 12:46 AM: Late on Monday night Paxton tweeted directly in response to the story – and pretty much confirmed it, writing “This is a ridiculous waste of time and the media should be ashamed of themselves. All across the country, conservatives have faced threats to their safety – many threats that received scant coverage or condemnation from the mainstream media. It’s clear that the media wants to drum up another controversy involving my work as Attorney General, so they’re attacking me for having the audacity to avoid a stranger lingering outside my home and showing concern about the safety and well-being of my family.”
