When You’re a Billionaire, Government Will Do Your Legal Work For You, Gratis

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said Monday he is investigating Twitter over its reporting of how many accounts on the platform are from bots and fake users, saying the company may be misrepresenting the number to inflate its value and raise its revenue.

So Musk threatens to walk over the issue of how many bots are on Twitter, and Paxton falls all over himself to help Musk out.

If that doesn't smell like favoritism/corruption, I don't know what does.

Wouldn't it be funny if he bankrupted the crappy car company he didn't found?

On the far side of things...

By getting paxton to do his due diligence things could happen like:

Paxton could find its his party running the BOTs and it would have
to be public knowledge.

Twitter could be found to be a major propaganda channel.

Paxton could be told to STFU.

Oh and Musk could find out Twits are worthless and
twitter is worth less.

Either way just a another day at the Texas Chicken Ranch.

The pay off will come when Texas allows customer direct sales of cars.

Glenn, yep, corrupt AF.

And yet conventional car buying is so awful that direct sales would probably be better.
Not that many Trumpites are going to be buying electric cars from Elon or anyone else and he's making sure Democrats will shun them too, hopefully.

Paxton was indicted seven years ago for defrauding investors in a tech startup. And yet here he is taking more questionable actions. Whoever said justice is blind didn't mean it looks the other way for certain well-placed people or maybe that was what was meant.
