1/ Breaking: The U.S. House's oversight committee is now investigating a Texas voter roll review that flagged thousands of eligible voters. #txlege bit.ly/2FGCHr0
2/ In letters sent to top Texas officials on Thursday, @RepCummings and
@jamie_raskin requested documents and communications from the secretary of state and the state’s attorney general related to the review. #txlege bit.ly/2FGCHr0
3/ “We are disturbed by reports that your office has taken steps to remove thousands of eligible American voters from the rolls in Texas and that you have referred many of these Americans for possible criminal prosecution for exercising their right to vote.”
4/ Some context to this:

In January, Texas loudly announced that counties should check on the citizenship of 95,000 registered voters.

Then, Texas quietly told counties that many of the voters flagged for citizenship review don't belong on that list. bit.ly/2FGCHr0
5/ A flurry of civil rights groups then filed several lawsuits to block state and county officials from working off of what has been proven to be a deeply flawed set of data. bit.ly/2FGCHr0
6/ A breakdown in communication has emerged since then between the state’s top election officials and county offices.

A rift in that relationship could prove perilous to the state’s election system.
