Response to Gothmog (Original post)

10. Greg Abbott is lying about the Voter id law

Greg Abbott has responded to the DOJ’s decision to file suit on Texas’ voter id law by claiming that a recent case of voter fraud shows that this law is necessary. http://txredistricting.org/post/59048626661/texas-attorney-general-greg-abbotts-press-statement-on

“Just days after the U.S. Department of Justice arrested a Texas woman for illegally voting five times in the same election, the Obama administration is suing to stop Texas’ commonsense voter ID law. The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled that voter ID laws do not suppress legal votes, but do help prevent illegal votes. Voter IDs have nothing to do with race and they are free to anyone who needs one. Eric Holder’s outrageous claim that voter ID is a racist plot to disenfranchise minority voters is gutter politics and is offensive to the overwhelming majority of Texans of all races who support this ballot integrity measure.

The case in question involved absentee ballot fraud and Texas’ voter id law would have done nothing to stop this fraud http://www.brownsvilleherald.com/news/local/article_6b379594-0a6c-11e3-917e-0019bb30f31a.html

According to the indictment against Solis, she voted in the names of Samuel Pedraza, Francisco Pedraza, Cynthia Pedraza, Dannie Vargas and Issic Guerra in that primary runoff by absentee ballot.

SB 14 does not apply to or deal with absentee voting or voting by mail.
