10. Greg Abbot had outside lawyer open

I was amused to see that Greg Abbott did trust his staff to make the opening statement and is relying on outhouse or outside counsel http://www.bartlit-beck.com/lawyers-AdamMortara.html

I am confused. The DOJ is claiming that up to 1.4 million people lack the required id and now the attorney for the State of Texas is stating that no one does not have the required id http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0712/78242_Page2.html

Mortara said that the scenarios in which voters lack the identification they would need to vote under the new law are more theoretical than real.

“It’s really quite difficult to find anyone who’s registered to vote who doesn’t have photo ID,” he said. “There are almost no people registered to vote in Texas who don’t already have photo ID.”


The above statement is contrary to the proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law where the State of Texas conceded that Dorthy Tates does not have the required ID and can not get the required ID due to a lack of a birth certificate. The claim that registered voters lack the required ids is really a bold statement that should be easy to disprove
