Rick Perry is a pitiful governor who does little except channel taxpayers' money into the pockets of his friends.

He'll make up any excuse to do that. He spent $12 million to find 4 possible cases of voter misconduct.

"Fewer than five complaints involving voter impersonations were filed with the Texas Attorney General’s Office from the 2008 and 2010 general elections, which drew more than 13 million voters.

“…the attorney general handled just 20 allegations of election law violations in the 2008 and 2010 elections.

"Most involved mail-in ballot or campaign finance violations, electioneering too close to a polling place or a voter blocked by an election worker.

“…every investigation has proven that the kind of fraud voter ID laws would address – voter impersonation – doesn’t really exist

I do so love it! Doonesbury "political consultants" are wanting to help Texas to secede, for the good of the nation.

"It'd be great for the country," one guy said.

"It might have been," his partner repied "It's too late now. The Bushes have already spread to other states."

"But the Perrys haven't!" his friend responded. "This could contain THEM!"

Still spreading BS I see. Using opeds as a reference when you can not argue what is on the official Atty Gen site.
So according to you the Atty Gen has posted lies on his site and convicted people unjustly?

AUSTIN - Despite scant evidence of actual cheating at the polls, allegations of voter fraud fueled the controversial law that makes a picture ID necessary to vote in Texas.

Fewer than five complaints involving voter impersonations were filed with the Texas Attorney General's Office from the 2008 and 2010 general elections, which drew more than 13 million voters.

The Department of Justice has deemed the law in violation of the Voting Rights Act, finding that it would disproportionately affect minorities, who are less likely to have a photo ID.

"To sell the voter ID law, however, supporters conjured up images of "busloads of illegal immigrants being transported up from Mexico to vote straight-ticket Democratic in an election near you," said Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas. "That was the fantasy, the scary narrative."

"...what every investigation has proven is that THE KIND OF FRAUD OVTER ID LAWS WOUD ADDESS - voter impersonation - DOESN'T REALLY EXIST," Sen. Rodney Ellis said.

"In fact, there are more UFO and Bigfoot sightings than documented cases of voter impersonation."

Still using opeds as fact I see. Try some real n umbers, try a real site, like the one I posted, you know the Texas Atty Gen web page.
Since you like using opeds here is a statement from the New York Times on the subject, "As the New York Times reported in February, we have 1.8 million dead people listed as active voters in the United States, and some 2.8 million voters have active registrations in multiple states."
So 1.8 million dead people. That would not work if a photo ID was required. 2.8 Million in multiple states? Not something voter Id would cure but still you keep saying voter fraud, "Does not exist", seems like it does to me.

Strange how some people are unable to recognize legitimate REPORTING and DIRECT QUOTES. Must be a FOX viewer.

But the failure to recognize FACTS and TRUTH doesn't alter facts and truth in any way whatsoever, fortunately.

Strange how some people seem to not be able to distinguish between oped pieces and official State Goverment web sites.
Must be a branchobamist.

The one thing he did get correct is that Truth and Facts do not change simpy because he doesn't like what they say.

Step up, stop posting oped and provide actual supporting evidence for your claims.

You claim that the Official Texas Atty Gen web page is lying. Prove it!
