This has just been the standard m.o. for Texas under Perry's republican administrations. And anytime they try to take their road show nationally (i.e. Perry's run for presidency) the glaring spot light shows every ugly failure.
Texas continues to be laughed at across the land. Thank you idiot ricky perry!
On the other hand their incompetency is good for voters of Texas and across the land. This case will set some precedent I hope. And no more states subject to the VRA will move any closer than Texas did at trumping up voter fraud to disenfranchise voters.
