Texas Threatens to Arrest UN Observers for Ensuring Voter Fairness

Texas Threatens to Arrest UN Observers for Ensuring Voter Fairness
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) sent a clear message to any United Nations elections observers who might show up in the state to monitor polling places around the country: if you show up in Texas you’ll get arrested.
In a letter to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, a body created by U.N. charter and tasked with helping ensure the integrity of elections worldwide, Abbott made it clear that as far as Texas was concerned diplomatic poll-watchers were not welcome. “It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance,” the letter states. “Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law.”
Earlier in the month the OSCE announced it would send 44 observers to polling places around the country on Election Day. The move was in response to a petition from groups like the NAACP and ACLU who are concerned about potentially criminal voter-suppression efforts by conservative groups.


WARNING TO U.N. Observers--BE VERY PREPARED TO DEFEND YOURSELVES FOR THE LIVES YOU WILL SAVE WILL BE YOUR OWN!! AFTER ALL, There is a War Against Women and Any One and Every One Who Does Not GOOSE STEP To the Republican Drum Beat of Christian Fundamentalism as Preached by the Modern Day Pharisees of the Far Right.
