AUSTIN, TEXAS — (09-05-20) — Assistant attorney general Nick Moutos of Texas, has been fired after Media Matters for America exposed his anti-Gay, anti-Muslim, misogynist and racist tweets.

Former AG Nick Moutos “no longer works for the Office of the Attorney General,” Kayleigh Date, spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s office told JRL CHARTS on Friday.

Nick Moutos had worked as Assistant Attorney General under Attorney General Ken Paxton, who himself has a history of anti-LGBTQ+ comments and actions in the criminal prosecution division.

This year Moutos sought the Republican nomination for U.S. House in Texas’s 35th Congressional District but lost in the primary.

The offending tweets were on the Twitter feed related to his congressional bid, which he has continued to promote even after the primary.

His anti-LGBTQ+ tweets include  transgender people “are an abomination and have a mental disorder.” Or this one where he denounced the American Civil Liberties Union for defending transgender people and said Americans should use the ACLU for “target practice.”

Review several of the controversial tweets made by now former Assistant AG Nick Moutos:

Needeless to say, citizens of the state of Texas are not sorry to see him depart his post!
