Texas Attorney General and next Governor of Texas Greg Abbott, immediately filed an appeal with the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, and on the 14th of October the Appeals Court put Judge Gonzales' decision on hold, citing a 2006 Supreme Court opinion barring Court Ordered election rules changes imminently preceding an election.
Eric Hoodlum's Department of (in)Justice promptly filed an emergency request with the Supreme Court to block the Appeals Court's decision. On Saturday, 18 October, the Supreme Court declined to hear the case, upholding by default the decision of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to allow Texas to apply its duly passed voting law in the upcoming elections.
Thus justice has been served and Eric Hoodlum's plot to turn Texas blue by means of voter fraud has been foiled – for now.
But the case illuminates the need to be ever vigilant and ready for action. We can never let our guard down. The forces of evil are persistent and must be continuously resisted.
Texas owes a great debt of gratitude to Attorney General Abbott for his quick and decisive action in this matter. Even in a wheelchair, Greg Abbott stands for Texas. He will make a great governor.
