Texas officials keep ignoring the courts on voter ID, and a federal judge is really hacked off now

 


Texas leaders apparently figured they could get away with ignoring federal court rulings about their voting procedures. Ignoring as in violating. For a couple of months now, they’ve been publicizing false claims about the state’s voter ID requirements for the November election. On Tuesday Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos slapped them down hard. She’s indicated anger in previous rulings on voting procedures, but as Ian Millhiser at Think Progress notes, this time “she’s pissed.” Consequently, she dished out some specific instructions about what officials must do immediately.

At some point, you’d think maybe the prospect of a bit of jail time might be used to rattle the teeth of these vote suppressors. But that’s not something in Ramos’ bailiwick.
