The Democratic Party's bi-annual voter fraud (they just call them "elections" in Chicago) and the voter intimidation practiced in urban hell holes by members of the Black Panther Party spurred the Europeans to send election observers to the US in an attempt to help us have free and independent elections.
Texas has a different take on it -- because it's unlikely that the Black Panthers would get much traction in the Lone Star State.
Texas authorities have threatened to arrest international election observers, prompting a furious response from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
“The threat of criminal sanctions against [international] observers is unacceptable,” Janez Lenarčič, the Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), said in a statement. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott further fueled the controversy on Tuesday when he sent a letter to the OSCE warning the organization that its representatives “are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place” and that it “may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance.”Texas has the Rangers and without putting words in the mouths of Texans, my sense is that they feel as if they have no need of European help to insure that elections are free and fair.
