Lawyers Come Out To Support Rosemary Lehmberg

First, please understand that I have a bias on this topic. One of my law partners is the brother of the Travis County District Attorney.

Gov. Goodhair really wants to have Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg resign so that he can name her replacement. I and a group of other lawyers all signed an amicus brief to support Lehmberg. http://www.keyetv.com/news/features/top-stories/stories/lawyers-come-out-support-rosemary-lehmberg-8259.shtml We can not give Goodhair the opportunity to name a replacement for Rosemary Lehmberg. I was busy forwarding the petition to a number of lawyers and I was happy to see a good response.

Again, Lehmberg made a mistake but should not be removed from office unless you want to see Goodhair control this office.

Texas Senate approve electronic voter registration

This is a very big step in the right direction http://www.chron.com/news/texas/article/Senate-approve-electronic-voter-registration-4457600.php

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Senate has voted to allow voters with driver's licenses and state identification cards to register to voter over the Internet.

The Senate approved the measure on Tuesday, and it now goes to the House for consideration.

The bill by San Antonio Democrat Carlos Uresti would not allow people without state ID cards to use the system. He said the aim is to eliminate the errors created when people fill out voter registration cards by hand. Those have to be transcribed and may not perfectly match state records.

Battleground Texas-Houston kickoff meeting

I was at the Houston kickoff meeting on Saturday for Battleground Texas along with 349 of my fellow Democrats. Here is a good report of the meeting. http://offthekuff.com/wp/?p=52087 Between Battleground and a revived State Democratic Party, I am feeling good about Texas becoming a battleground state sooner than I expected.

Jenn Brown is am impressive leader and there was a great deal of energy in the room. I was in a discussion group with Juanita Jean (she is from my county) and Susan took me up to meet Jenn afterward.
