In my latest column, I applaud the growing clout of women and the great collaboration of diverse groups, in Texas and nationally, in support of issues important to women.
The voting rights abuses by Republicans in Texas and nationally will now be the cause of a similar coalition. I fully support the bold move by the Department of Justice to initiate a frontal legal challenge, which I expect to prevail, against continuing voting rights abuses in Texas.
More cases in other states are undoubtedly coming. While Texas Republicans in Washington, led by Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz and the state's GOP House delegation, alienate Hispanics by opposing fair immigration reform, Republicans in Texas, led by Gov. Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott, repeatedly attack the voting rights of Hispanics, blacks, seniors and countless other Texans.
