Texas judge order election officials to stop removing voters from rolls

NBC - A federal judge declared there is no widespread voter fraud as he took steps to block Texas officials from removing people from voter rolls or making them prove they are U.S. citizens.

U.S. District Judge Fred Biery ruled Wednesday that the state “created this mess” and ordered officials in the 18 counties named as defendants not to remove anyone from the voter registration rolls without his approval.

“As Robert Fulghum taught in ‘All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten,’ always put things back where we found them and clean up our own messes,” the judge said in his order.

He also ordered acting Texas Secretary of State David Whitley to advise officials in the rest of the 254 counties to also not remove anyone from the lists without the court’s approval.
