Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) decision not to preclear Texas' voter identification law:

"Texas has a responsibility to ensure elections are fair, beyond reproach and accurately reflect the will of voters. The DOJ has no valid reason for rejecting this important law, which requires nothing more extensive than the type of photo identification necessary to receive a library card or board an airplane. Their denial is yet another example of the Obama Administration's continuing and pervasive federal overreach."

I must have missed the part in the Voter ID law that said it was limited to Wilson County. Following that logic you could pick out one voting precinct and say the law is no good because there was no voting fraud in that one precinct. ... More ›
