re: Texas threatens to arrest UN observers


quote:

The ODIHR limited election observation mission for the 2012 general elections in the United States consists of a core team of 13 experts, from 10 OSCE participating States, based in Washington D.C., and 44 long-term observers deployed throughout the country. These are the sixth United States elections the Office has observed, without incident, since 2002.

so they monitored the 2004 and 2008 elections I presume?

it must have been in a different capacity if Texas never said they would do anything about it before...

and I guess just another thing to add to my things I didn't like about Bush

Dunno. What would they be doing differently?

But given steps by Republicans to make it harder for people to vote over the last few years, I can see why Republicans don't want anyone to spoil their efforts.

According to Rick Perry there are 3 reasons for arrest.
1. Trespassing
2. Voter Intimidation
3. Well, he couldn't remember the third one.
