State Rep. Ann Johnson of Houston, a member of the Texas Legislature’s LGBTQ Caucus, is vice chair of the board of impeachment managers presenting the case against Ken Paxton to the Texas Senate.

The Texas House of Representatives today (Monday, May 29) named a seven-person board to present the case for convicting now-suspended-and-impeached Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to the Texas Senate, and House LGBTQ Caucus member and Houston Democrat Ann Johnson is vice chair of the group.

And the state Senate agreed to start its trial of Paxton no later than Aug. 28. The board of impeachment managers includes seven Republicans and five Democrats.

Republican Rep. Andrew Murr of Junction is the chair. Other Republicans on the board include Reps. Charlie Geren of Fort Worth (who noted last week that after the articles of impeachment were announced Paxton started calling lawmakers while they were busy on the House floor and threatening them with political repercussions); Jeff Leach of Plano, Morgan Meyer of University Park, Briscoe Cain of Deer Park, Cody Casut of Angleton and David Spiller of Jacksboro.
