From the Houston Chronicle: Harris County election officials got a bit of a surprise Friday morning when they attempted to open the county's spending account on the Texas Secretary of State's office website and found their access blocked. State officials have temporarily cut off the county's voter registration funding.
"We received verification from (state election division Director) Keith Ingram that funding was being held up," said Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Don Sumners.
Secretary of State spokesman Rich Parsons
said state officials halted funding Tuesday after learning that Sumners
refused to purge deceased voters from the voter rolls as required by
federal and state law.
Sumners, who also serves as the county's
voter registrar, said Monday that he would not remove "dead" voters
until after the Nov. 6 election. He said a statewide list of about
80,000 deceased voters generated by the Secretary of State's office is
too unreliable. Sumners said the secretary of state's block of voter
registration funds would not change his mind. http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/State-blocks-county-funding-in-dead-voters-spat-3866729.php
Summers thinks the list from the State is too unreliable, which is a load of crap. If he would have taken dead people off the voting rolls much earlier, then he could have corrected any mistake.
So, why would Democrats in Houston and Dallas want dead people on the voter rolls? Gee, maybe because they think they could still vote Democratic?
