Texas Democrats are tying Governor Greg Abbott to the controversy over Trump University.
“Apparently, Governor Abbott is now on the Trump payroll,” Democratic Party Deputy Executive Director Manny Garcia said.
He says Abbott for a $35,000 campaign donation from Trump, allegedly after then-AG Greg Abbott dropped an investigation into Trump University in 2010.
“That probe was brought down, it was ceased, Trump University stopped its operations in Texas” and that’s when the donation came in, Garcia claims.
Matt Hirsch of Governor Abbott’s office issued a statement: “The unthinkable has happened – the media’s obsession with Donald Trump is now leading them to highlight the job then-Attorney General Abbott did in protecting Texas consumers.”
