for Office of
Texas Attorney General
The Texas Constitution and statutes governing the Office of Attorney General
establish limits on what the Attorney General can do officially. However, the
person holding the office can use it as a pulpit to advocate reforms outside
his proper jurisdiction. Therefore, this platform is divided:
- Make more effective use of grand juries to investigate problems,
particularly official misconduct, not being addressed by other agencies.
- Selectively defend Texas citizens against federal abuses and usurpations,
where doing so is likely to result in significant court precedents.
- Review all opinions of previous attorneys general for constitutional
- Convene town meetings in cities across the state to discuss local problems
and official misconduct, which will hopefully become regular monthly forums for
reformers of all kinds.
- Work for drafting and adoption of a new Texas Constitution that better
protects the rights of Texans.
