The good people over at ThinkProgress.org had strong enough stomachs to read the entire Texas GOP platform for 2012. Â One nugget that was in there, was Texas GOP’s desire to repeal the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
I’m sorry – isn’t Texas one of the 9 states that had such egregious acts that kept minorities from voting that basically caused the 1965 Voting Rights Act? Â Yes it is. Â And isn’t Texas one of the 9 states that has to get approval before updating their voting laws? Â Yes again!
We’ve already seen blatant claims that the GOP is pushing for votes for Romney and suppressing votes for Obama for the 2012 election. Â This is just another line in their “screw everyone but Republicans” playbook.
