On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is facing calls to resign amid new allegations of improper influence, abuse of office, and bribery. We learn what's behind these new allegations.

Also this hour: We talk with Congressional candidate Mike Siegel. He’s the Democrat challenging incumbent Rep. Michael McCaul in the 10th Congressional District. It’s the second in a series of planned interviews with candidates for the upcoming election.

Then journalist Peter Baker discusses his new book, The Man Who Ran Washington, about Houstonian James Baker, former White House chief of staff and cabinet member. James Baker, Peter Baker, and co-author Susan Glasser are taking part in a webinar on public police this Wednesday.

And we discuss the concept of architectural activism — how architects are changing their approach from public spaces to the life cycle of buildings. It’s the subject of an upcoming lecture series from Rice Architecture.
