JESSICA TETREUA LOST THE BALLOT CONTEST ON THE MERITS WHILE JUDGE ROBERT PATE MAKES CLEAR HE HAD A DUTY TO PROTECT THE INTENT OF THE VOTERS.

Judge Robert Tate took the correct approach.  Normally a Plea to the Jurisdiction has to be heard with evidence first, but he denied it reserving the right to pick it up after the trial on the merits.  You see he understood his ruling would be a lot stronger if he ruled on the merits thereby making the Plea to the Jurisdiction moot.  In fact based on the testimony, using a very narrow interpretation of the statute since there were no military ballots sent out for District 2, there was no mootness issue.

The judge look to the issue of intent.  The witnesses with the exception of one, and one forged signature testified it was their intent to put Cata on the ballot.  The judge found under the election code that sitting as a court of equity he had no choice but to find Cata had enough signatures and denied Jessica's Injunction.  Now she can take a mandamus directly to the Texas Supreme Court, but I do not believe the record and ruling can come before the final deadline for local mail ballots.

THE OFFICIAL HEADLINE - JESSICA TETREAU KALIFA FAILS AT HER ATTEMPT TO SUBVERT THE WILL OF  THE PEOPLE.

It should not matter who you support, you should be happy the Judge made it clear he was not going to disenfranchise the intent of the voters. This victory belongs to the people, and Cata stood and defended our rights against Jessica and the machine backing her.

If the press does its job, Jessica just lost a lot of votes.
