I kinda love Texas right now

"The spokesperson also claimed there were “no sovereignty issues” involved, emphasizing, as Texas’s attorney general did, that the OSCE obviously has no authority over the states it chooses to monitor. "They have said that they do not intend to violate any laws while in the United States," Nuland claimed. "So we are going to let the conversations go forward between the OSCE and Texas and see how that goes."

In the Lone Star State, however, officials did not take kindly to the international whining or the Obama administration’s response. "No UN monitors/inspectors will be part of any TX election process," tweeted Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, in support of his chief law-enforcement officer. GOP U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz, a popular conservative who made opposition to UN schemes a key part of his campaign, also saluted Abbot for standing up to the scandal-plagued international outfit.

The Texas attorney general, meanwhile, remained defiant despite State Department pronouncements and OSCE complaining. “UN-related vote monitors warn Texas: Don't mess with us. My response: BRING IT,” Abbott tweeted in response. He also quoted Sam Houston saying: "Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may." Following the tweets, Abbot also sent an official letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton laying down the law."

This is just political posturing. The OSCE has been monitoring elections here for years. They aren't breaking any laws or gaining any special access either.

We really should be demanding more transparency (and audit trails!) in the voting process and this would be a moot issue.

Texas is pure awesome, but Rick Perry is a two-faced weasel. Not only was he Al Gore's campaign manager, he also pulled legislation to ban TSA groping, even though the bill was flying through unanimously.
