Today a federal judge has again tossed out Texas’ Voter ID law, barring Texas from enforcing both the 2011 law and the recent voter ID bill signed by Greg Abbott earlier this year. Lone Star Project Director Matt Angle released the following statement:
“Federal Court rulings that Texas Republican leaders have engaged in discrimination against Texas citizens are as regular as clockwork. The reason is simple: Texas Republican leaders embrace and employ a strategy to hold power by denying basic voting rights.
“Suppressing voters and dividing Texans, and all Americans, against one another are now essential tools in the Trump/Abbott Republican Party.”
