Texas Gov. Rick Perry calls 2nd special session to pass abortion bill

Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday called a second special session of the Texas Legislature to pass widespread abortion restrictions across the nation's second-largest state, after the first attempt by Republicans died overnight following a marathon one-woman filibuster.

Perry ordered lawmakers to meet again on July 1 to act on the abortion proposals, as well as separate bills that would boost highway funding and deal with a juvenile justice issue. The sweeping abortion rules would close nearly all the state's abortion clinics and impose other widespread restrictions.

...if there's a way this could be delayed indefinitely until an investigation can be made into the timestamping.

Sen. Wendy Davis' filibuster was Obama-style tactics.

And the bills previous failure was because of "Occupy Wall Street tactics".

So he had to resort to Republican tactics. Vote tampering.

2. The Democrats need to go luxuriate in Ardmore.

They did that in 2004. I have a commemorative t shirt of that event.

"Killer Ds - Austin to Ardmore" on the front with a picture of a bus.
