Texas' GOP attorney general tells Steve Bannon podcast 'we're done if anybody can vote' after court ruling

A Texas court ruling has prompted the state’s Republican attorney general to admit that the party is “done in Texas” electorally if anyone can now vote.
The comments come from Ken Paxton, who is currently embroiled in a number of controversies relating to his office's investigation into possible voter fraud.
Mr Paxton’s comments come after a Court of Appeals decision which will effectively strip him of the authority to prosecute “voter fraud”, with that now exclusively the job of local DAs.
Since there is no appeal process, all he can do now is ask for a rehearing. Speaking on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast, the AG confessed that the judicial decision could have a big impact on the outcome of Texan elections in years to come.
“We’re done in Texas if anybody can vote,” Mr Paxton bemoaned. “By this November, if we (the GOP) don't get this changed, I think it's very likely we could lose five members of the Texas Supreme Court, we could lose my position, we could lose Governor.”
Donald Trump’s former’s chief strategist then asked Mr Paxton how the ruling happened, to which he replied: “It came as a surprise to me, to my staff, we just thought this was a joke...and the timing is clearly planned.”
The Court of Appeals ruling is notable for the fact that it was made by an all-Republican court, which would seem to invalidate the 62-year-old’s inference that it was a politically motivated decision.
Mr Paxton’s unrelenting search for evidence of voter fraud is well documented. The Houston Chronicle claims that he has spent $2.2m since the 2020 Presidential election looking for evidence of foul play.
While no such evidence has been unearthed, accusations of wrong-doing on the part of Mr Paxton have surfaced. As MSNBC writes: “If there were a competition for the most scandal-plagued elected official in the United States, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton would likely be leading the pack.”


Seems that every time an actual incident of voter fraud is discovered, it's been committed by a Republican.

As a long lost native son, I'm immediately adding that to my repertoire (hmmm, using a French word to describe adding a Norwegian phrase to the vocabulary of a nomadic PNW'r from Texas.... that will give someone a fit).

in spite of that, tesla will continue to expand their production in that state as well
people can and do vote with their feet

take a look at people leaving new york too
i'm not familiar with the projections/details
but in the long run, i'd guess that the elonians will be responsible for a massive reduction in co2
the only other industry/technology that i can think of at the moment that could have a bigger impact on our climate is nuevo nuclear

tesla's tech is inspirational and efficient
it is being copied/emulated around the world
why? because it works? demand?
are there things about tesla/spacex/starlink that could be better? yes
and they seem to be busy af pursuing that goal
