Campus PC is out of control!
While Abbott has the discipline to use dissembling euphemisms for most of this shit (“election integrity,” “heartbeat bill”), he can’t resist admitting that the state wants to “crack down” not merely on “rioters” but “protestors.” You said it, chief! I can’t wait for the next SubStack about how an obscure branch of legal scholarship the author does not remotely understand is destroying America.
Speaking of the election integrity LOL bill, more on that later but it’s something:
1. Texas Republicans just released the text of its voter suppression bill, SB7
Votes will be held before midnight Sunday
The bill includes a NEW PROVISION that allows judges to OVERTURN AN ELECTION "WITHOUT DETERMINING HOW INDIVIDUAL VOTERS VOTED"

4. The final bill text also:
Bans drive-thru voting and voting after 9PM (used disproportionately by voters of color in Harris County)
Bans voting on Sundays before 1PM (Souls to the polls)
Makes it more difficult for people with disabilities to vote by mail— Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) May 29, 2021
Everyone knows more fraud happens before 1 PM!
