Obama and Holder Attack Fair Elections in Texas
Instead of addressing the nation’s deteriorating economy and disparaging unemployment rate, President Obama and his Justice Department are spending their time attacking Texas’ voter ID law, which David Dewhurst led the fight to pass for the integrity of our elections.
From the Office of the Lieutenant Governor:
"Following the decision earlier this week by the D.C. federal court to strike down Texas' redistricting plan, today's ruling to reject Texas' Voter ID law should be a rallying cry for conservatives across Texas as the Obama Administration continues to trample on our states' rights. The law passed in Texas was designed to protect the right of one person-one vote by ensuring that only U.S. citizens — who are legally eligible — vote in elections. We have a Constitutional responsibility to protect and defend one of our most sacred rights — the right to vote — and defend the rights of millions of law-abiding citizens by ensuring fair elections. Texas will immediately appeal this shameful decision and send a message to Attorney General Holder and the Obama Administration to stop meddling in the Constitutional duties of Texas."
Months after David Dewhurst called for the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder, the Department of Justice continues to attack common-sense measures designed to prevent voter fraud.
We need to make sure that Texas has conservative leadership to fight Washington’s unnecessary war on Texas. Join the fight today!
