Basically the Republicans are asking the court to tell Tatum, "Don't let this happen again."
And if he does do it again, what are they going to do about it? They don't say. But we can assume it's nothing.
Why aren't they asking to do the election over?
I expect this petition to be amended for a few different reasons which one of them is typos. They may ask to do the election over in the amended petition. Usually the party/person requesting a do over has to pay for it. I.e. recount. While I’m unsure if that applies to a new Election Day, it’s certainly possible. Im going to send HCRP an email requesting for them to sue for a new Election Day.
In the interim, it’s time for conservatives to peacefully take to the streets in large numbers and on a recurring basis. Conservative votes were suppressed, plainly and simply. Imagine the reversed scenario: white Republicans committing all the illegal acts named in the lawsuit, resulting in suppression of Democrat votes, many of which are minorities’ votes. Houston would burn. Drivers would be pulled from their cars and beaten. Statues toppled. Think BLM riots. I’m NOT suggesting violence but LEGAL protests to be in the Court’s mind when considering this case. If we sit back and wait for “someone else” to right this monumental wrong, we are likely to end up with “This won’t happen next time.” IT’S THE ALAMO IN HARRIS COUNTY NOW! We must commit to sustained peaceful protests against the obvious suppression of conservative votes.
