On Tuesday, a Dallas, Texas, woman who was sentenced to a week in jail and a $7,000 fine for opening her salon in defiance of state orders delivered a poignant answer when the judge said he’d rescind the jail sentence if she admitted she was wrong.

In 2016, ACRU successfully sued Starr County, Texas for not maintaining voter rolls. It in settlement with ACRU, the county agreed to implement critical action items to remove ineligible voters from its lists. Now, once again, “politiqueras” — campaign activists paid to collect mail-in ballots from people and “encourage” them to vote a certain way—are showing up. Since our lawsuit, Starr County officials are now diligently watching for fraud, and recently found some. They are getting tips and prosecuting offenders. Thumbs up to Starr County.
Apply to register to vote in Texas and your application needs to have your original signature. Sounds reasonable? Not according to Democrats.

We have to wonder — how in the world do they get away with this stuff? Let’s not let them.
