For Immediate Release: December 8, 2023
TEXAS – Today, Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed a judgment ordering the Texas Department of Public Safety to turn over records related to the 2022 Robb Elementary massacre in Uvalde, Texas.
State Senator Roland Gutierrez, who represents Uvalde and is a candidate for the U.S. Senate issued a statement condemning the Attorney General.
“Disgraced and corrupted Ken Paxton is fighting the release of these records to help cover up for Steve McCraw and the failures of DPS. Texas Republicans are working overtime to keep Texans in the dark about what really happened in Uvalde. Uvalde families and the Texas public continue to be scammed about the neglect of rural Texas and loose gun laws.
“Two teachers and 19 innocent kids were braver than all 400 DPS troopers – and every single family member continues to show the courage and grit to fight these cowardly politicians, who hide behind lagging investigations and refuse to fix the gun violence issue that is plaguing this country. I am confident the Attorney General and DPS will lose this appeal, and their failure will be plain as day for all to see.”
