In a shocking turn of events that literally no one could have predicted, elected Republicans in Austin have tried to scam their voters by doing the exact opposite of what they claimed.
Amid a voter-fraud feud between Texas’ “Big Three” politicians—Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and House Speaker Dade Phelan—sparked by grassroots activists demanding action, two Republican lawmakers filed legislation Friday to fix a provision in the GOP’s signature election integrity law that actually weakened penalties for cheaters.
Abbott and Patrick are publicly siding with GOP grassroots’ call to keep illegal voting a felony, but Phelan is shutting them down.
Texas Republicans actually passed a law that significantly reduced the criminal penalties for illegally voting while telling us they were making our elections more secure.
After the Democrats broke quorum to go to Comet Ping Pong in DC to protest this very bill, all the usual suspects celebrated victory upon the bill finally being passed. It was said by Abbott that “election integrity is now law in Texas.”
Our mantra here at Current Revolt is, well, we have many mantras. Officially we are your go-to source for anti-demonic news in Texas, but we are also expert science deniers and anti-vaxxers.
However one mantra has been absorbed into our DNA (naturally not through vaccines) is that “if Republicans in Austin are doing something, they are running a scam, you just have to find it.”
Literally everything these people do is a scam. Nothing is straightforward, and everything they do harms us in some way. But we missed this scam. Everyone did. Everyone except…
JoAnn Fleming and her group, Grassroots America We The People, exposed the scam first.
So they got busted by GAWTP, and now Abbott, Bryan Hughs, Patrick, and Mayes Middleton are scrambling to correct this mistake.
But wait, where is little man Dade Phelan?
Phelan is god and he calls the shots, you see. He doesn’t feel like addressing the issue, because he’s scared of Democrats, so the law will just stay as it is.
Isn’t that cute?
The traitor who authored this amendment was Steve Allison who looks creepy as heck.
We first covered Creepy Steve in December as he filed a bill to explicitly slip the diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE) agenda into public schools. I can’t hyperlink the story here, because our service provider is run by incompetent morons who also happen to be big believers in DIE.
We reached out to Allison and gave him an opportunity to explain himself and why he would introduce such an amendment. We never heard from him.
It can hardly be said that the Reps didn’t know this was going on. Briscoe Cain added an amendment to Allison’s amendment!
The big problem here is Dade Phelan and his little cabal of power tripping weirdos. They’re never going to deliver on anything but scams.
This vote to lower penalties for illegal voting can and should be used against every single Republican incumbent.
