I saw this piece on a blog called Mullings. The author of the blog is Rich Galen, who I believe worked for Kay Bailey Hutchison at one time.
FROM DNIPROPETROVSK, UKRAINE: I’ve been here for two days preparing for, and actually observing, the Ukrainian parliamentary elections. I was part of the International Observer Mission in that effort. During the day before I hopped on an airplane from Kiev to come down here we were briefed by various government and political leaders. One person in our group asked whether international observers could remain in a precinct to watch the counting process. You may have missed this, but the other day the Attorney General of Texas offered the theory that if international observers interfered in the elections in Texas next week they could be arrested. The Ukrainian official answer the question about remaining in the precinct by saying, “Yes. Ukraine is not Texas.”
