"Voter Fraud" Scandal Update
Next week could see the passage of the Texas voter id bill, if Sen. Gallegos's health issues persist.
In linking yesterday to this Houston Chronicle column by Kristen Mack, I neglected to highlight perhaps the most important sentence in the piece: "Among Republicans it is an 'article of religious faith that voter fraud is causing us to lose elections,' [Royal] Masset[, former political director of the Republican Party of Texas,] said. He doesn't agree with that, but does believe that requiring photo IDs could cause enough of a dropoff in legitimate Democratic voting to add 3 percent to the Republican vote."
