It's Taking Federal Court Rulings, But
Texas Voters Are Getting A Fair Shake

On Tuesday, "Court: GOP’s Texas Redistricting Plan Intentionally Discriminated Against Hispanics"; today, "Federal Court Rules Texas Voter ID Law Is Discriminatory". Not only district boundaries but voter ID requirements are outside the pale. Great. Just great.

Gov. Ricky-boy just can't get anything he wants this year. Good. Texas GOPers have gotten to the point at which they don't even bother to conceal the discriminatory effect... hell, not even the discriminatory intent... of their anti-Black, anti-Hispanic, anti-poor laws. IIRC, today's ruling was by a majority Republican-appointed panel, so you know things must have been bad.

Unfortunately, the message the Texas GOP takes from these rulings will NOT be "we have to treat all voters equally," but rather "we have to conceal our discrimination better." What will it take to boot these bigots out of government?
