Hours after former President Donald Trump demanded Gov. Greg Abbott audit the results of the 2020 election in Texas, the state announced it was conducting a “comprehensive forensic audit” of the 2020 election results in four Texas counties.

This is a weak move by Abbott, shamelessly taking his orders from a disgraced former president to appease his him and his fans. Abbott’s and Trump’s motives here are clear — to sow distrust in our elections and to appease GOP conspiracy theorists.

Well said, David. Times up for Abbott. He must GO! Political puppetry is not what made Texas Great. It was fierce independence in intelligently separating wrong from right, truth from fabrication, and strength from weakness. Petty wars fought on illogical emotions and an absence of facts are always doomed over time. Don't Mess Up Texas!!!
