Today we’re releasing an alarming video of a GOP “Election Integrity Brigade" virtual launch where they detail plans to build an army of poll watchers who will have the “courage” to go into Black and Brown neighborhoods


#txlege #HB6 #SB7
What we see in this video is a concrete, real-world example of why it is a downright dangerous idea to expand poll watcher powers while removing the ability of election workers to kick a disruptive poll watcher out - which is precisely what #HB6 does

The myth of voter fraud is frequently used to target communities of color to delegitimize their vote and silence the voice of a rising electorate that simply wants to claim their rightful place in our democracy. It has to stop
Last night @DadePhelan said in an interview he wanted companies and business leaders like @AmericanAir & @MichaelDell to point out where the voter suppression is in #HB6

👉 This video clearly shows how the poll watcher provisions are discriminatory & downright dangerous
Appreciate all the RT’s y’all! Making noise and being loud is working!

Media is paying attention - just gotta keep the pressure on so we can kill #SB7 and #HB6 and keep the partisan poll watchers described in the leaked video from being given new powers to disrupt voting #txlege
👋 Hey y'all -- video now has over 125k views and has been featured on @CNN @washingtonpost @NBCNewsNow and more!

But now we need to make sure Speaker @DadePhelan sees it before allowing #SB7 or #HB6 on the House floor
