Questions Abbott's Motives

RECEIVED Thu., June 12, 2014

Dear Editor,
    Greg Abbott has supported the Texas law that provides transparency for items purchased by the state, so that citizens can know what the state pays for all items. After he accepted about $350,000 from the compounding pharmacy lobby, he has changed his mind about protecting the rights of Texans, in order to provide cover for the compounding pharmacy lobby, who provide lethal drugs for Texas executions. The clandestine purchases of lethal drugs by Texas prison officials will now go without scrutiny. Greg Abbott telling anyone that they need to recuse themselves is a joke.
