Statement from Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott

"The Texas Legislature enacted commonsense measures to prevent fraud and promote accountability in the voter registration process. Project Vote’s lawsuit is nothing more than an ACORN spin-off’s attack on the Legislature’s efforts to ensure fair, orderly and legal elections. It’s ironic that ACORN’s successor is now challenging laws that were enacted in response to widespread voter fraud by ACORN and its voter outreach arm, Project Vote. The State will immediately appeal this ruling and seek an emergency stay motion so that Texans can have confidence in the integrity of the voter-registration process and the ballot box."
