Texas Attorney General Files Amicus Brief in Pressley Case to Texas Supreme Court

Posted by |

The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) has filed an amicus brief before the Supreme Court of Texas in support of the petitioner – Laura Pressley. At issue in the amicus is whether all ballots, including Direct Recording Electronic voting machines (DREs), must follow the Texas Constitution’s requirement to number each ballot.

In question is the language of the Texas Constitution Article VI, Sec. 4 which reads:  “in all elections by the people, the vote shall be by ballot, and the Legislature shall provide for the numbering of tickets and make such other regulations as may be necessary to detect and punish fraud and preserve the purity of the ballot box.”. Note that the term “tickets” here is interchangeable with ballot – in other words every ballot must be numbered. Read More

What Happened to Victoria Neave?

Posted by |

Back in June State Representative Victoria Neave – Democrat from Dallas’ District 107 – was arrested on a DWI charge. At the time of her arrest she seemed contrite and apologetic. In her official statement She promised, “I will accept the consequences of my actions and will work to make this right.”
Well, where is she now? Court records show that Ms. Neave is doing everything she can to delay those consequences and obfuscate from justice. So far Ms. Neave has postponed her day in court three times, most recently pushing it off to October.  This is a far cry from accepting responsibility and making things right.

The good news for voters is that Ms. Neave has a very viable opponent. Mrs. Deanna Maria Metzger has been campaigning hard in the district to oust Neave. This contest is heating up and observers from around the state are keeping an eye on this race. It is, after all, one of the few swing districts in Texas and if Mrs. Metzger is successful she will swing this seat back to Republican control.

Meanwhile – will Ms. Neave ever face the music and take responsibility for her DWI? Will she continue to use her position as State Rep. to delay and obfuscate? Let us hope justice, or rehab, visit her soon.

Phony Republicans Need Not Apply

Elections in Texas aren’t won in November, they are decided in March, and this March will see some fierce competition. Conservatives continue to escalate the war on liberals that run as Republicans in Texas simply to get elected, and conservatives continue to win big.

March may seem distant, but most 2018 Primary Election battle plans are already underway. Potential candidates are launching exploratory efforts, reaching out to donors and supporters to judge their strength. Read More
