Texas wants access to database for voter purging

Goodhair does not want Rick Scott to have all of the fun with respect to purging voter rolls http://www.dallasnews.com/incoming/20120718-texas-wants-access-to-federal-database-of-immigrants-to-check-voter-rolls.ece

Texas officials plan to join a growing number of states across the country seeking access to a massive immigration database to check voter rolls for possible non-citizens, officials confirmed Wednesday.

Texas Secretary of State officials were drafting a letter Wednesday formally requesting access to the Department of Homeland Security database, which contains more than 100 million immigration records, said Rich Parsons, an agency spokesman.

Texas Secretary of State Esperanza “Hope” Andrade, an appointee of Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry, is the latest GOP elections leader to request access to the database since Homeland Security officials last week granted Florida permission to use the database.

1. This will work...

The reality is that these states will purge American citizens just because they have the same names as those non-citizens listed on the DHS database.

And the notifications will be sent out when its too late for people to prove that they are American citizens.

3. Juanita Jean agrees with you on this point

http://juanitajean.com/2012/07/19/what-could-possibly-go-wrong/ There are 8 registered voters with the same name as the Republican Sec. of State. There are going to be some innocent and legal voter purged with this list

2. Yes, because Texas has such a record of too many people voting.

Wait, what?

Goodhair in the SS, I mean, DHS database, is like giving a heroin addict a free pass to Marseilles.

Will his term NEVER end?

4. Yep I'm with you on this one

I would never trust republicans to use the database correctly and without malice.

Name confusion. There are going to be thousands of similar names of legal and undocumented persons. You just wait to see the fiasco they create by just purging first and then putting the responsibility to "re-register with proof of citizenship" back on the voter.

This is just another end around for them to keep shaving those 6-10 points every election.
