Idiotic Obama DOJ Contesting Texas Voter ID Law Had George W. Bush on the List of 1.5 Million “Disenfranchised” Voters
Attorneys for Texas on Thursday cited the appearance of former President George W. Bush’s name on a list of Texas residents who would supposedly be ineligible to vote in the state under a law requiring voters to show photo identification as evidence a Harvard University study of the measure was deeply flawed.
In a federal trial over the law, which has been blocked by the Obama administration, the lawyers for Texas argued the fact that Bush was on the list even though he certainly has a federal ID, showed the study wildly overestimated the number of Texas voters who would be unable to vote under the measure.
Texas lawyers told the court they also found the names of two members of the state legislature on the list.
Bush is among some 1.5 million Texas citizens whose names are listed in the study as failing to meet the eligibility requirements of the law, lawyers said at the trial.
