Judge Rejects Bid By Texas Republicans To Throw Out 127K Drive-Thru Ballots

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, a George W. Bush appointee, has rejected a bid by Texas Republicans to throw out 127,000 ballots cast in Harris County (Houston) due to lack of standing.

The Republicans tried to argue that drive-thru sites (which were approved months ago by the Texas Secretary of State) are less secure than in-person polling sites, but Judge Hanen said, “I ain’t buying that.”

If you want to understand why the GOPers wanted the votes tossed – Harris County is 25% Black and 43% Latinx.
