Paxton sues 2 more TX school districts, Huffman, Aledo ISDs, for illegal electioneering

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing two more North Texas school districts for allegedly using state resources to influence political races through illegal electioneering.

Paxton is suing Huffman ISD and Aledo ISD, the Office of the Attorney General announced in a news release Friday.

During a school meeting at Hargrave High School, Huffman ISD superintendent Benny Soileau instructed faculty to vote for 16 specific politicians who supported certain policies, the release says. When school staff asked for a list of the endorsed politicians, Soileau said that a Huffman ISD administrator would provide it, the suit alleges.

In a post on X, Aledo ISD said the district is being sued for electioneering for sending a community email that read, “discussing the school’s budget and how voting in the primary election would greatly impact Aledo schools.”

Suffice to say, the corruption runs very deep there.
