A couple weeks ago I wrote in to congratulate Rep. Andrew Murr and Gov. Greg Abbott for finally passing a solid election integrity law. 

However, now that the details of the new Election Integrity Law signed by Abbott have come out, we find out that acts of election fraud (e.g. ineligible voting, duplicate voting, voting a ballot belonging to another person and fraudulent marking of ballots) that were second-degree felonies are now only Class A misdemeanors. Apparently, this happened by subjugating the better Senate Bill 7 that had passed the Senate to the weaker House Bill 6.
