Chupacabra Report

The lead editorial in today’s Chronicle applauded the fact that Harris County has agreed to stop denying the vote to tens of thousands of eligible citizens. County officials of course deny any wrongdoing, but promise heretofore to process voter registration applications in accordance with state law, and to notify applicants in a timely matter if and why their application was rejected so that they can amend their application and re-apply.

The County further agreed that employees of the tax office, such as the voter registrar, will no longer be allowed to moonlight as partisan political consultants, as happened under re-elected-then-resigned Tax Assessor Paul Bettencourt.

Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan, who worked to bring about this settlement, praised it as ensuring that “everybody who fills out a valid registration application will be certified to vote.”

This settlement has been OK’d by the county commissioners, and now must be approved by the US Justice Dept.

Interestingly, the GOP lost ground in last year’s elections, despite their disqualifying more than 60,000 likely Democratic voters.
Let’s hope these thieving trogs really get their asses handed to them next year.
