I am certain that The Governator will be getting right on that...
 
2022-07-01 3:11:04 PM  
Surely Trumpers will be all about locking some people up over that, right?

This is some serious good ole boy bullshiat. Most other places it has some veneer of legitimacy. In this texas backwater they don't even pretend... because they don't have to.

No kidding.  I don't live there, but I might someday so I should be able to vote there?  WTF?

All those illegal registered voters are antifa!!!!!!1!!

"In May, Judge Skeet Jones, 71, the most powerful politician in the county, was arrested on felony charges of cattle rustling"

That is the most Texas thing I've ever Texas'd.

57 people in an ENTIRE county? Jesus, no wonder Texas has so many counties, if they have them with less than a hundred people.

I think some people owe Donald Trump an apology.

Fun fact:  only recently has news of Biden's electoral win over Trump reached Loving County by way of aero mail.

We know now the answer to the question "Just how farking corrupt does someone have to be in order for the criminally indicted Texass AG to be investigating them?"

And of course this backest-of-the-backwater sisterfarker county has a Judge Skeet Jones. Of farking course it does.

If people have property in Loving County and go back once or twice a year and spend a few days there, Ingram said, "I think, arguably, they inhabit that location, and they can claim it as a residence."

I like this guy's line of thinking.  It's why I count nieces and nephews as dependents on my tax return when I see them at most once or twice a year.
 
2022-07-01 4:44:38 PM  
Why does this county even exist? 677 sq miles. My county in Oregon is over 5000 sq miles. Sparse counties everywhere need joined together, this grift has been happening for ages I bet
 
2022-07-01 4:46:53 PM  
I think you are forgetting about the thousands of dead people that voted in Philadelphia.

/ The lack of evidence just shows it was a massive cover-up
 
2022-07-01 4:47:07 PM  
11 people in one house? Must be them illegals from the caravan we keep hearing about!
 
2022-07-01 4:48:15 PM  
All 57 of them turn out for "California is a lawless shiathole" threads.
 
2022-07-01 4:48:46 PM  
Nuke the county.  If nobody lives there the problem is solved.
 
2022-07-01 4:48:47 PM  
Ah, lovely Mentone.  For years, whenever Best Buy, RadioShack or whoever would ask me for my ZIP code for marketing reasons (now they customer ZIP codes back from Visa/MC, which is why nobody asks any more), I would always say 79754.  I always hoped that would get some computer thinking they needed to build a mall there.
 
2022-07-01 4:49:52 PM  
This is taken to an extreme, but it's not crazy unheard of. My parents voted absentee in the county of their childhood (A) for decades, despite actually residing about 90 miles away (in county B). AFAIK, they only voted in A. And we were there almost every weekend and most holidays. So they had a lot more going on than your average absentee voter.

The old Renteria farmhouse is hardly the only open secret in this county, the least populated in the continental U.S. Voter registration has been suspiciously high for generations...

LOL, "suspicious"?

Ya think? Seriously, that is the dumbest possible line they could have put here. I mean, they tried to clarify it here:

The voter registration roll is 97 people long, according to the Texas secretary of state, but the U.S. Census Bureau estimates only 57 people live here.

Sure, there might be a few discrepancies, since so many wonderful individuals freak out over census takers, but this is almost DOUBLE the actual residents, and they're ALL allowed to vote? Yeah, sure it might be an "estimate", but not with this much of a difference.

How did they beat the entire state of Virginia then?

My old home County in Delaware is almost twice that size.

And remember, the Texas AG promises a $10,000 reward for each of those commissions of voter fraud.

Don't hold your breath for the still under a felony indictment AG, either. His office is way to busy to do anything, especially since he gave them an extra holiday day off when the Dobbs decision came down.

Then, last year, in the wake of former President Donald Trump's false claims that the election was stolen, the Texas Legislature passed a law that tightened the definition of residency for voter registration. Known as SB 1111, the new law - effective Sept. 1, 2021 - says people can use "previous residences" to register to vote only if they're living there at the time and plan to stay there. But it left in a fuzzy provision that allows people to vote in places they intend to return to - making the measure's impact as cloudy as the brackish waters of the Pecos River.

That's what Busse did in Loving County in June, mailing out 44 cards - to nearly half of the county's registered voters - requiring them to say where they live, with a possible penalty of perjury. Some people have taken it as a "personal attack" and accused Busse of misinterpreting the law, but he said his only goal is to follow it.


Too f*cking funny! The consequences of their own actions is in play. Complete with the personal attack bullshiat. I'M THE VICTIM HERE!!!!!

That part of Virginia split off from the state in 1792 and started calling itself Kentucky.

Counties named after Alamo defender descendants.

There is no more anti-American politics than local politics.  All local politics are awful, horrid, and corrupt.

Punishment is rare: The attorney general's office has successfully prosecuted only about 155 people for election fraud offenses since 2005.

I'll go with it depends on the skin color.

Multiply this by a shiatload of tiny towns in sparsely populated areas.

The idea that people out in the sticks are more honest and noble than the people in the cities has always been bullshiat.

See also rural Oregon. Josephine County, where the men are men, the cows are scared, and everyone's name is Miller.

Simonsen, 66, the county attorney and Skeet Jones' cousin's husband,

I got dizzy trying to keep up with the Jonses.
 
2022-07-01 5:16:25 PM  
Is Mark Meadows registered to vote there?

How about Ken Paxton?

Rafael Cruz?

Just wondering.
 
2022-07-01 5:21:02 PM  
Simonsen raised a philosophical question: "What is better in the long run, that you would vote somewhere that is important to you and where you have deep ties?  Or somewhere that you are just because your work takes you there?"

How about you follow the law? A foreign concept to you but, well, everyone else has to.
