HOUSTON, TX August 26, 2010 – On Friday, August 27 at 10:30 a.m. at the Historic Magnolia Ballroom located at 715 Franklin (at Milam), Houston Votes will answer and refute the reckless allegations made by Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar, Leo Vasquez on Tuesday, August 24. Leo Vasquez made reckless and false allegations against Houston Votes, the organization, in an apparently coordinated, partisan effort to suppress voter registration and to intimidate citizens into not voting. Sadly, this type of shameful tactic has worked all too well in the past. Houston Votes is committed to non-partisan voter registration and helping register the over 600,000 citizens eligible to vote who are not even registered.
Nothing about the charges, just attacks of partisanship against Republicans from a group that claims to be "non-partisan"*. Ah well, when I find a story on the press conference I'll link to it as well. Hopefully they have an answer for the "thousands" (Leo Vasquez's word) of inaccurate voter registrations. That or proof that Vasquez is full of it, either way.
