That is a gross distortion of what the bill is. It clearly does nothing of the kind. And it certainly is not racial in any way.

It’d be great if you guys ever read more deeply than the Tweets when it comes to anti-Republican narratives.

But hey, don’t let facts get in the way of your lying narratives.


At first glance, it looked as if the law might essentially discourage driving three or more people to a polling place by requiring drivers to account for their relationships to passengers. But a sub-provision referenced the voters’ inability to physically enter the polling place “without personal assistance or [without] likelihood of injuring their health.”

In an April 10 2019 KYTX report about whether SB 9 threatened Texans’ right to vote, Hughes and Smith County Voter Registration Drive organizer Nancy Nichols were quoted in part on the “transportation” portion of the bill:
It's meant to suppress "Souls to the Polls" when many are transported en masse to the polls. They also made it so polls can't open before 1 on Sunday. GTFO with your "it's not Racial" BS.

Because then the QOP can't win. They flat out told SCOTUS that.

You just made the righties close their eyes, plug their ears and yell NANANANA at the top of their lungs.

Minorities are more likely to vote before 1 on Sunday?

”Souls to the Polls” is not mentioned in the legislation. Nothing will prevent any of these voters voting if they follow voter integrity process.

Let me highlight this part for you again:

“Under this section of the bill only a person who takes three or more people at a time who are not family members and who are all disabled to the point of not being able to enter the polling place would be affected,” Senator Hughes said. “Even then, the bill doesn’t prohibit transportation, it just requires the driver to fill out a short form with basic information about who they are and how they helped.”

Exactly how does this prevent Souls to the Polls from carrying out its mission?

Why exactly is this necessary?

Maybe you should be required to fill out a form every time you drive your car, I mean why not?
🤷🏼‍♂️

Od course it doesn't explicitly mention it. The RW think tank lawyers that write this garbage aren't stupid.

You'll pretend any provision lacks discriminatory intent unless it explicitly states it because you're a pathetic QOP shill.

What is Souls to the Polls? African American voters going in large numbers together to vote after Church. So what does the Texas QOP do? Tell polls they can't open until 1 on Sunday and restrict transportation of large groups to the polls. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what they're trying to accomplish. It takes willful ignorance to ignore it.


What other problem is this seeking to solve? How is it a "voter integrity process? Why TF does it matter how the voter arrived at the polling place?

What problem is keeping the polls closed until 1 on Sunday seeking to solve? How does it increase "voter integrity process?"

The new Texas law provides more days of early voting than some Democrat states, including New York and Delaware.

Are Souls to the Polls the only groups that are driven to the polls?

AGAIN, it does not prevent them from being driven to the polls, which was the original Tweet posted by JTF. To quote that Tweet: “...Texas legislators want to make it illegal for citizens to voluntarily travel together...”.

That’s called a lie.

What’s the problem with opening at 1 pm? Does that preclude people from voting? Are they busy after 1 pm?

Most churches end before 1 PM. Stop playing dumb to defend racist BS. I thought you were better than that. Clearly not.

Hes less partisan than 95% of the RW hacks on Fox News.
He was supposed to be a “news anchor” for CBS. He reported an unauthorized, unverified story about Geo W Bush that was false and reported it as if it were fact just before the 2004 election. He lied. He was ultimately fired for it.

Churches are not allowed to be political. If your assumption is correct, then I would assume that Texas does not want to encourage churches being political in violation of the federal legislation.

That makes sense to you, no?

The ban on political campaign activity by charities and churches was created by Congress more than a half century ago. The Internal Revenue Service administers the tax laws written by Congress and has enforcement authority over tax-exempt organizations. Here is some background information on the political campaign activity ban and the latest IRS enforcement statistics regarding its administration of this congressional ban.

In 1954, Congress approved an amendment by Sen. Lyndon Johnson to prohibit 501(c)(3) organizations, which includes charities and churches, from engaging in any political campaign activity. To the extent Congress has revisited the ban over the years, it has in fact strengthened the ban. The most recent change came in 1987 when Congress amended the language to clarify that the prohibition also applies to statements opposing candidates.

Currently, the law prohibits political campaign activity by charities and churches by defining a 501(c)(3) organization as one "which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

Most churches end before 1pm. Therefore, not opening polls until 1pm is racist. Huh? You might want to explain that one a bit further in between your OUTRAGE.

This is as funny as it gets. Straight up leftist delusions. Another BlueAnon attempt at making anything and everything RACIST. It’s really just pathetic.

Black churches getting people to the polls hurt Republicans and they want to make that harder. Its not rocket science.
LOL

Oh, so Blacks, and not Whites, are less likely to vote unless their Church "gets them to the polls" before noon...... And, those Blacks that are only voting because their Church "got them to the polls" before noon are Demoratic voters. That's what you are going with? Yeah, that is totaly not demeaning to POC or racist. Wow.

You'd maybe have a point if those same republicans weren't shutting down polling places in democrat counties while opening more in republican counties. All these steps to make it more difficult to vote. Especially more difficult for black voters. The party of the old white man. Hope nobody notices! lol.

Churches shouldn't be political and we should tax them. But many of them are. Evangelical churches are among the worst offenders so spare me your sudden concern.

This is not about that. It's simply a tradition among many African American voters that the QOP wants to stop so fewer of them will vote. You can pretend otherwise, but you're only lying to yourself.

Their church doesn't "get them" to the polls, it is simply a tradition that many people participate in. There is no equivalent among White evangelicals. If there was, they wouldn't be doing this.

What was the issue with the previous rules that this is fixing?

Hey, Wally said they "get them" to the polls and that it wasn't rocket science so I went with it.

You, on the other-hand, are telling me that Black's have a tradition of voting after going to Church & White's do not have any such tradition. Also, Black's who have that tradition would have voted for Democrats, but now will just not vote. Do you have a Link or even a Twitter Post supporting this ridiculous claim? Honestly, you sound dumber in every post you make.

I have no idea what the issue was that they are trying to "fix". However, you are moving the goal-post again (RE: Amazon paying "low" tax rate). You stated on two occassions that this change was "obvious racist BS" - so stick to the topic and try to use a logical argument on why not opening polls until 1 pm on Sundays is racist.
