This is just absolutely insane.

Texas official threatens to arrest election monitors observing US polls | World news | guardian.co.uk

The Texas attorney general, Greg Abbott, has threatened to arrest international election monitors invited by liberal groups to observe the conduct of next month's presidential vote in states accused of attempting to disenfranchise minorities.
The OSCE is sending 44 observers to voting stations across the US at the request of various groups, including the NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union, because of "an unprecedented and sophisticated level of coordination to restrict voting rights in our nation". These include attempts by several states, including Texas, to introduce voter identification laws and other measures blocked by federal courts which have ruled they were motivated by racial discrimination.
Greg Abbott, Texas Attorney General, Threatens To Arrest U.N. Elections Observers [UPDATED]

Someone should tell Mr. Abbott that its not the Deep South circa 1955.

Hey. He thinks no such thing! (He actually thinks that it's the Deep South circa 1855).

Good. The Republicans demand that everyone present a picture I.D. when voting.

This simple demand is too much for the moonbats.

To right.

If I was running the State of Florida I wouldn't allow people called "Chad" to vote either.

A young Republican was busted the other day in Pennsylvania for destroying absentee ballots.

Texas is a solid red state, so this will have no effect on the outcome of the election.

The OSCE is more than a liberal group, it is an intergovernmental organisation to which many states have signed up, including the USA.

Interestingly its present "Chairman in Office" is none other than Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore.

A son of a democrat had to resign from the campaign after being filmed discussing how to commit voter fraud. It cuts both ways in the US.

Yes, but currently only the Texans are raising a fuss about U.N. election observers. That's what this thread is about.
