By Eric Bradner and Dianne Gallagher, CNN Texas Republicans are targeting Houston's efforts to expand voting access during the 2020 election with a series of measures that would limit...
"GOP lawmakers introduced two dozen bills that would make it harder to vote in Texas ahead of Friday's filing deadline. Republican sponsors of two of those bills on Monday identified the bogeyman that inspired the legislative pushes: Harris County, the state's largest county and the home of Houston.
Democrats have made major gains in recent elections in what was once a conservative-leaning area, helping the party narrow the GOP's margins in statewide elections and giving Republicans incentive to seek to limit votes there. Abbott and other Republicans have offered no evidence of widespread fraud in Texas. The only example Abbott cited Monday was a 2014 case in which a man was charged with offering cocaine and cash for votes in a school board race in Donna, Texas."
After years and years of Democrat rule in Texas; after all of the voting laws Democrats put on the books to make it easier to cheat; the Republicans in Texas are finally standing up -- I mean, yes, the Republicans have had control of the legislature and governorship for decades -- but it sounds better to blame all of the voting law stuff on Democrats.
And it couldn't come at a better time; especially when you start to hear about all of the fraud that was uncovered during the 2020 elections in Texas. The Texas AG launched an extensive inquiry into voter fraud which included 22,000 hours of staff investigating voter fraud [mostly done by blacks] and you wouldn't believe how much fraud they found....Out of the 17 million votes in Texas, Paxton's investigation found 16 cases of false addresses on registration forms -- that's it...that is the ball game...widespread voter fraud found and proven.
