Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has sent a letter to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) warning that its election observers are not welcome in Texas:

The OSCE’s representatives are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place. It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance. Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law.

My first thought was: My god, what an asshole! My second thought was: What does Texas have to hide?
