James O'Keefe is at it again, this time with video showing that voters are on the registration rolls even though they've been excused from jury duty as non-citizens. That was a clever trick, cross-checking the voting rolls against the jury records. There's something unusually offensive about using one's lack of citizenship as an excuse to avoid jury duty, then trying to vote anyway.
I swiped the title from one of the article's commenters. My astonishment that voter I.D. has become a race issue knows no bounds, as does my astonishment at people who think that there's no voter fraud.
The Texas primary is right around the corner. Early voting, in fact, already has begun. As I'll be traveling to a wedding on election day, I'm going to early-vote any day now, as soon as I figure out what to do about some of the less-publicized races. Any comments from people knowledgeable about races such as the Texas Supreme Court justices or the Railroad Commission (our oil & gas body) are encouraged to hold forth in the comments section. This will be the first election in ages in which we've have some realistic choices for a U.S. Representative other than Ron Paul, not only because he's not running again but because the district lines have been redrawn. Our new (to us) incumbent, Blake Farenthold, is a bit of a Tea Party type but not a Pauline.
