Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A Texas judge has blocked an order allowing only one absentee vote drop-off point per county, claiming it would affect older and disabled voters. Drop-off points were set up to allow voters to submit ballots in advance rather than rely on the postal service.

Abbott panicked because of the polls. Texas is really in play. Donald Trump made that happen a few election cycles before it would naturally.

Scum desperately attempting to save the political fortunes of scum.

The GOP keeps getting smacked down by the courts in their efforts to limit voting. It's almost as if voting is a right that should be protected or something.

Add Pennsylvania to the states winning voting right cases vs Trump.... even with all his efforts to restrict voting ( which has to be the most un-American thing you can do)... Trump is toast.

@#3 ... Add Pennsylvania to the states winning voting right cases vs Trump..

axios.com noted ( www.axios.com ) that the Judge in the Pennsylvania case was a Trump appointee.

Some people say its better 100 eligible voters be deprived than have one illegitimate vote counted!

"Abbott panicked because of the polls. Texas is really in play."

I am really glad to hear that. But, as a survivor of 2016 I will believe it when I see it, of course. These guys know how to cheat pretty good. And the shotgun effect of law suits is very effective and disruptive.

I am happy that this operation has been exposed as a fraud and just more fraud waste and abuse of taxpayer money by the criminally negligent and disastrously incompetent Team Trumpy.

What was the final score in Ted Cruz vs Beto O'Rourke? You got to think Biden is going to do better than Beto did.

Depends on how many people get a chance to vote.

I don't think they can do much to stop voting at Texas. They didn't think they had to.

Anytime a federal district court judge rules in TX, LA and MS the first question must be, what did the Fifth Circuit say about that. And the answer is ...

Everyone registered in Texas will have a chance to vote.

This case is not about voting. It's about returning completed absentee ballots to a drop box.

It must be remembered that for years Texas has allowed only one drop off location per county, the clerk's office. In July, Abbott, using emergency powers, expanded that to include a clerk's satellite offices, if any. In October, Abbott withdrew that order. The TX SC upheld that withdrawal.

Can you see where this is probably going?

Like I said. Believe it when you see it.

These guys know how to cheat real good.

The linked article sucks. The Texas Tribune article is much more detailed and describes the Texas Attorney General's petition for a stay of the Federal circuit order which was granted by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

How is it "cheating" when the net effect is to conform to existing state law, one drop off location?

Legal cheating is still cheating.
That's how.

For example, Gerrymandering is cheating.

If you don't think Gerrymandering is cheating, you don't understand what Representative Democracy is.

Do you think Gerrymandering is cheating, Et_Al?

(I'll also accept Eberly's answer!)

To get real.. Wyoming with 580,000 people having 2 senators....
California's 40 million people get 2 senators ....and the 780,000 people in D.C. get none.
How is any of that fair?

"Fairness" is not a virtue to "conservatives". Ownership is the only thing they value.

Go ahead and pretend to be stupid.

Using the law to make it harder to vote = cheating.

Cheating the voter and the country by making it more difficult to vote.

Republicans do anything they can to suppress the vote counselor because they are afraid of letting Americans decide.

If it makes it more difficult to vote then republicans are all for it.

Because the only way they can win is cheating.

That should be painfully obvious by now even to you.
