Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul is going after his own governor for the state’s recent power failures due to damaging winter storms.
While Paul acknowledged several factors contributed to Texas becoming “like a Third World country,” he partially faulted Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s “authoritarian Covid restrictions” for the power grid failure in a Newsmax op-ed.
“Gov. Abbott’s authoritarian Covid executive orders at least indirectly led to lax inspection, maintenance, and winterization of wind and other energy generation plants,” he wrote.
