Perhaps, Texas Republicans should focus on the many, many problems facing Texas and stop worrying about disenfranchising voters and undermining democracy. Unlikely, they will every prevent a dozen bad actors (voting on both sides of the divide) from threatening election integrity. Their assertion that their actions are in the "noble" support of the "glorious" cause of protecting our elections is cynical, disingenuous, and worst, autocratic. Their only purpose is the retention of power.
