AG Ken Paxton wants emails related to elections from North Texas school districts
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is telling North Texas school districts to hand over all emails related to voting or elections.
Mesquite ISD is one of the districts now scrambling to fulfill the public records request.
It specifically asks for emails in the last six months with the key words election, Texas Legislature, vote, voting or any mention of a candidate in Texas.
Laura Jobem, the spokeswoman for mesquite ISD, says they've done nothing wrong. "Is there was something that we did wrong? It would be great if they would just point that out to us and let us know," she said.
Paxton hasn't said why he needs the emails.
