Here’s the e-mail, dated March 11: We expected and prepared for anything at yesterday’s Senate hearing on Voter ID legislation. Let me tell you — the liberal Democrats in Austin did not disappoint on that front. Hundreds of concerned Texans showed up as early as 7 a.m. on Tuesday morning expecting to provide oral or written testimony on this important issue. Unfortunately, the response from Democrat senators was not very welcoming. That’s right! Rather than taking time to listen to personal testimony on incidents of voter fraud in past elections, these Democrats chose delay with their childish rants ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT LONG! In fact, as we are writing this message some Texans are just now providing their testimony. The hearing was scheduled to start at 9 a.m. yesterday, but the first public witness was not called until 6:45 a.m. this morning. That’s 24 hours after arriving at the Capitol yesterday morning. [The next paragraph refers to a brief video of a handful of Republican activists who provided their testimony after waiting all night.] Before you watch the video, though…can you take one quick action? Texas Democrats have shown absolutely no shame in their unprincipled opposition to Voter ID legislation. Yesterday’s despicable delays are likely just the beginning. Will you make a special emergency contribution to the Republican Party of Texas right now? We are working literally night and day to support our GOP officials as they push for Voter ID requirement in our Texas elections….” [bold facing is in the original e-mail]
