Abbott's term as Texas AG is about Abbott, not the People
"Whether it's using mothers and children as statistics while ignoring them as individuals; building an expensive film department to glorify himself on the taxpayers' dollar; using the Ten Commandments to idolize himself; or using state property for his campaign commercials, Greg Abbott's term as attorney general of Texas has been all about Greg Abbott, not about the people."
Statement of David Van Os:
"Greg Abbott has a real problem. He thinks using public office to glorify himself is the same thing as representing the people.
"Whether it's using mothers and children as statistics while ignoring them as individuals; building an expensive film department to glorify himself on the taxpayers' dollar; using the Ten Commandments to idolize himself; or using state property for his campaign commercials, Greg Abbott's term as attorney general of Texas has been all about Greg Abbott, not about the people.
"He says it's OK to use state-produced film for his campaign because Greg Abbott the candidate requested the film from Greg Abbott the Attorney General, then Greg the Attorney General granted Greg the candidate's request. It is an embarrassment for Texas that an Attorney General who was also a Texas Supreme Court justice would be this fast and loose about conflicts of interest.
"I've recorded this sworn pledge to my fellow Texans in 254 county courthouses:
I solemnly promise that I shall treat the office of Attorney General of Texas as exclusively the property of the people of Texas, which I shall hold in trust exclusively for the benefit of the public and never as my personal domain or tool of personal advancement or profit, for so long as the people may choose to entrust it to me."Texans are tired of good ole boy government. They want integrity back. They are entitled to it. November 7 will be a great day"

Inasmuch as it took Greg Abbott until last week to congratulate the child support employees for meeting their goals, I suppose you must be right. It IS all about him. He should have called them in August to thank them for their hard work (that he takes ALL the credit for). Instead, he waits until right before the election to remind them who they work for.
Most of them were thoroughly grossed out.
Greg Abbott is making desperate attempts at making the Texas OAG seem more competent and successful than it is.
This is to blindside voters into a false security that he is doing all that can be done for the collection of child support in TEXAS. HOG WASH.
Just visit www.petitiononline.com and type: Texas OAG in the search box. I believe 336 current signatures provide a differnt prospective of the "accurate" goings on in the Texas OAG.
Give it the good fight David and voters lets band together and conquer Greg and his band of Costellos once and for all. Let's send Greg packing to the Red Wood Forest in a lightning storm.
