DOJ FILES AGAINST CARLOS CASCOS FOR VIOLATING FEDERAL COURT ORDER ON VOTER ID

"Additionally, the court order provides that the state must “educate voters in subsequent elections concerning . . . the opportunity for voters who do not possess SB 14 ID and cannot reasonably obtain it to cast a regular ballot.”

Yet, according to a Justice Department motion filed on Tuesday, Texas is not complying with this order. Texas’ press releases, voter education materials, and poll worker training manuals claim that the right to vote extends only to voters who comply with the illegal law — those who “have not obtained” and “cannot obtain” ID.

As DOJ notes, this “cannot obtain” standard appears to forbid voters impacted by the voter suppression law from voting unless it is literally impossible for them to obtain an ID. But that’s not what the court order said, and it is a distinction that could potentially disenfranchise many voters."

Files against the Secretary of State better stated

I say Cascos because he is the one responsible for the office. Using the term State of Texas, of SOS, hides the name of the person accountable for possibly violating the court order.

no he is just doing what he was told to do. the informational sheets were prepared by lawyers in his office and the AG - I doubt he did more than sign off on them. The SOS lawyers are some of the worst in State government
