PolitiFact: How Many Times Did Greg Abbott Sue the Federal Government?

KUT News

The Attorney General of Texas recently said he’s sued the Obama administration 25 times.

KUT's Emily Donahue checks that statement with Gardner Selby of the Austin American-Statesman’s Politifact Texas project.

Last month, Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott was speaking at a FreedomWorks rally in Austin when he described his daily routine since President Obama took office: “I go into the office, I sue the federal government and I go home.”

We rated Abbott’s statement, that he has sued the Obama administration 25 times, as True.

Listen to the full story above.
