Vermin Supreme did not win. Here in Travis County, they didn’t even record my vote for him. It turns out that only pre-registered write-in candidates are allowed in Texas.
I am sure this is evidence of some ancient and epic fraud but who knows how long ago, coulda been Sam Houston did this to freeze out a shipwrecked Horatio Hornblower who mighta won it if not for this specific shenanigan.
Anyway, it’s in our state laws, so it’s unlikely to change anytime soon. Texas. It’s the Ravenloft expansion for America.
