The State of Texas is prosecuting a man made famous by his 7-hour wait to vote - for voting.
Apparently, he had another 2 months before his 16-year parole was up - so by waiting all day to vote, he broke the law. He’s sitting in jail, because he can’t afford the $100,000 bail, and he’s facing up to 25 years.

He broke the law and voted illegally did he not?
$100,000 bail because what he did was so dangerous.
And to think, it was only a few days ago that you pretended to be offended, when I questioned your support of restoring felon’s voting rights.
It’s time to give tejas back to the mexica.
Did he complete court order sentence…yes or no?
You support voting illegally…yes or no?
So, when the chips are down, you jump to
but it’s the law.
How do you reconcile that with - well, everything?
So you support breaking laws when it comes to voting. Got it.
I’ll ask again…did he finish his sentences…yes or no?
Its not like we didn’t know your whole
libertarian thing was performative already, but we definitely know it now.
No, he did not “finish his sentence”,
OK then…what did I say about restoring rights? Once they complete their court order sentence all rights should be restored…not some. All.
But it seems as a “attorney” you support law breaking.
So, if courts start imposing
lifetime parole, you’re OK with no rights being restored, ever?
Sure. You’re welcome to break whatever laws you want.
I break the law all the time.
The dude definitely violated his probation, but I think this was excessive. 100,000 bail seems awfully crazy for what he did. Rapists get smaller
Bails than that.
Did they have their due process?
I agree…it’s outrageous.
But that doesn’t change the fact that “some” think it’s acceptable to break voters laws.
