#EndorseThis: Texas Democrat Schools Republican On Racist Voting Law Provision

Texas Republicans are adding fuel to the GOP voter suppression fire with a new law that promises to "preserve the purity of the ballot box"-- a phrase that has been used throughout the country's history to disenfranchise voters "deem[ed] unfit" to vote.

Since the Civil War, racist lawmakers have used those words to disenfranchise Black voters, as Democratic Texas state Rep. Rafael Anchía so eloquently pointed out to a clueless Republican.

"Are you aware of the history behind that provision of the [Texas state] Constitution?" Rep. Anchía asked Republican Rep. Briscoe Cain.

"I-I'm not," Cain answers.

Should've done more research, huh? Watch him endure the embarrassment he earned.

Former President Donald Trump

Imagine this: You’re a clerk to a judge in a New York State court. You graduated from the Cardozo School of Law in 2010, and since then, you have worked as an associate in a New York law firm. For five years, you worked for the City of New York in its Special Litigation Unit handling law suits against the city. You have been the clerk to Judge Arthur Engoron since 2019, getting up in the morning and traveling by subway into Manhattan to your office in his chambers, or sitting beside him in court, advising him on cases, filings, motions – the constant flow of legal documents and questions that any judge in a big city court deals with constantly.
