Hat tip to Lowering The Bar.
In a story that seems like it came straight out of a Monty Python movie, a Texas judge has at least temporarily halted Texas officials' plan to purge 77,000 "presumably dead voters" from voting rolls after finding that four of the plaintiffs rebutted this presumption by being – in fact – alive.
At least one county official refused to comply with the instruction to delete thousands from voter registration rolls because hundreds of the "presumably" dead contacted the official to complain.
