Two individuals from Denton ISD have been charged in an alleged illegal electioneering case. Here's what is know at the time of writing.

Early Details Of The Case

As reported by The National Desk, two employees of Denton ISD were in the news as of February 2024. Jesus and Lindsay Luján, principals of Borman Elementary and Alexander Elementary respectively, stood accused of using district emails to tell the fellow co-workers to vote in the primary elections for Republicans. This led to a lawsuit from Ken Paxton, The Texas Attorney General.

Paxton said of the lawsuit at the time:

“Government officials everywhere are on notice that I will use every legal remedy available to me to stop school districts from influencing or coercing their employees to vote any particular way, especially when a district uses taxpayer resources and money to do so.”

While the case was settled recently, the investigations were not over.
