Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Second whistleblower who accused Texas AG of bribery fired from position: report”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A second whistleblower was fired this week from the Texas attorney general’s office after being among those who brought forth allegations of abuse and bribery against state Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) earlier this month, The Texas Tribune reported Thursday. 

A former senior official who had knowledge of the firing told the Tribune that the office on Tuesday fired Blake Brickman, who had served as deputy attorney general for policy and strategy initiatives for less than a year. 

This comes after the Tribune reported on Tuesday that the attorney general’s office had fired another top aide, Lacey Mase, who was also part of the group of seven current and former aides who provided statements to law enforcement about the allegations against Paxton. 

Mase told the Tribune on Tuesday that her departure “was not voluntary” but declined to provide any further information. 

According to the Tribune, Paxton’s most senior aide, Jeff Mateer, resigned from his role after saying he was among those who talked to law enforcement. Paxton has also reportedly placed two other aides on leave.
