What 19th Amendment? It's a trend lately, that if a party is afraid of losing an election, they pass legislation barring key groups in their opponents' base from voting. And clearly, it's something Texas has taken to heart. Right after Wendy Davis declared that she was running for governor, Texas Republicans set out to disenfranchise women from voting, 19th Amendment be damned. As of November 5, Texans must show a photo ID with their up-to-date legal name.
This lovely southern gentleman isHarry T. Burn; the man who was the deciding vote in passing the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote on August 18, 1920. Tennessee-born, woman-respecting, and just that gosh darn attractive? Well I don’t mind if I do.
