Texas wants access to database for voter purging [View all]

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.
