Governor Perry's first veto

According to Grits, Governor Perry's first veto of 2007 was for HB770, a "bipartisan bill that drew no organized opposition at the Lege". But it would have made it easier for ex-cons who have fully served their sentences to vote, and we just can't have that. Read Grits' analysis for why this was such a petty thing to do.

Perry reasoned that we don't send out registration cards to other soon-to-be-eligible-voters, such as children who turn 18. Well, then how about we do that, too?
