Austin, TX, Release: September 26, 2020. For Immediate Release
U.S. District Judge Marina Garcia Marmolejo’s decision to mandate straight ticket voting across Texas less than a month before voting commences reveals that Democrats will do anything to undermine the electoral process if they believe it will help them. Judge Marmolejo cited the coronavirus pandemic, saying the elimination of the voting practice would “cause irreparable injury” to voters “by creating mass lines at the polls and increasing the amount of time voters are exposed to COVID-19.” This reasoning is simply a cop out to advance a progressive political agenda.
This is a textbook case of Democrats legislating from the bench. Chairman Allen West astutely pointed out that “this is why we need Trump as President to continue filling federal judicial positions. This Obama appointed judge is attempting to legislate from the bench by illegally overruling Texas election law passed by the duly elected representatives of the people of Texas. The continuing court maneuvers by the Texas Democrat Party is evidence of their realization that they cannot win in November on the merit of their ideals. They can only win by undermining our democracy through judicial activism.”
The Texas Democrat Party and their supporters seek to have the law overturned by a leftist judicial ideologue. This will force counties across the state to print and issue new ballots, which will only add to the confusion and opportunity for fraud.
The Democrats know chaos and divisiveness are key to their victory that is why they are waging a war on law and order, not just in the streets but in the courts, too.
