It's the incompetence & corruption in the absence of accountability.
That’s why we fight for voting rights in Texas. A true democracy will ensure our leaders respond to the people they're supposed to serve.

The GOP will take the bill up again in a special session
But something EXTRAORDINARY is happening Beto O'Rourke 1 week ago:   Thursday Jun 10 - 10:39pm Our discussion in Emory enjoyed greater debate than some of our other stops.
It felt good to share that space to respectfully discuss what we don’t see eye to eye on.

As @prophetmixicon makes clear, whether it is polling place closures, racial gerrymandering or punitive voter ID laws, Texas is already the toughest state in which to vote. https://t.co/i0Dk6Dbot0 Beto O'Rourke 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jun 9 - 8:24pm In the face of voter suppression, becoming a volunteer deputy registrar and registering our neighbors to vote is the best way to bring as many people into our democracy as possible.
