International vote monitors warn Texas: Don't mess with us

VIENNA/AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - International election monitors took a dim view on Wednesday of Texas' threat to prosecute them if they observe voting in the state a bit too closely on November 6.

The exchange pitted the Vienna-based human rights watchdog Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe against Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who warned the OSCE not to interfere with polling in state elections.

"The threat of criminal sanctions against OSCE/ODIHR observers is unacceptable," Janez Lenarcic, director of the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) monitoring arm, said in a statement.

I hope Texas calls their bluff; however, given Texas'....

experience with TSA, I am not optimistic. When Obama threatened to call in the F-16s, Perry should have ordered the Texas Air National Guard to shoot them down.

Let's Hope So

If Texas doesn't stand up and protect their sovereignty, nobody will.

John Birch society was right, so so right.

Robert Welch?

He gave that speech in 1958, and to listen to it today, some 54+ years later he sounds like a prophet, he definitely seen the writing on the wall.

For those who have never heard of Welch, this video should be a must see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZU0c8DAIU4

Who cares if they think it is unacceptable?

I think their being here is unacceptable. they have no legitimacy whatsoever.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

They have no authority here.

And that begs the question, why Texas? Why not IL, PA, NY, TN and the other states that have proven to have election / voter fraud / intimidation. Me thinks this is about the voter ID law.
