Oh, our governor. I saw this in the news and now there’s some behind the scenes reporting from Politico. This really is a sign of the disproportionate influence of a former President on his party and the state and local governments. He has no authority to call for an audit and yet, the state scrambles for one where he won by 600k votes and there are no signs of issues with the election. This can’t be interpreted as anything other than an attempt to undermine free and fair elections in the United States.
I hope this new MAGA group (clever re-appropriation of the acronym that I learned about via a neighbor’s yard sign) achieves its stated goals and we kick this sorry excuse for a governor out of office. He’s turned Texas into a hellscape that I never dreamed possible despite the many years of Republican leadership.
