Texas House of Representatives votes to impeach Attorney General Ken Paxton, but he insists on wearing his cowboy hat throughout the proceedings

Ken Paxton refuses to remove his hat during impeachment proceedings

The Texas House of Representatives voted to impeach Attorney General Ken Paxton on Tuesday, but the proceedings were not without controversy. Despite requests from Speaker of the House Dade Phelan to remove his hat, Paxton insisted on wearing his signature cowboy hat throughout the entire hearing. "I am the Attorney General of Texas, and I will wear whatever hat I damn well please," Paxton declared to the House. The impeachment stems from allegations of abuse of office and bribery, but Paxton has maintained his innocence. He has also refused to step down from his position, citing his duty to the people of Texas. Meanwhile, social media has been abuzz with memes and jokes about Paxton's insistence on wearing his hat. Some have even suggested that the hat may be the source of his power. The impeachment proceedings are expected to continue in the coming weeks, but for now, all eyes are on Paxton's hat.
