Gotta love Texas politics

[glumbert texasvote]

According to the story above, it's apparently common practice in the Texas legislature to vote multiple times on the same ballot initiative. They use an automated system for casting votes, and, if the desks near your own happen to be unoccupied at the time the vote is called, it's a scramble to see who gets there first to cast some extra votes.

I believe the woman they interview, who was supporting the practice, was a Republican, but I've no doubt the Democrats are equally guilty of the practice. How are we supposed to respect and support our lawmakers when they consider themselves above the law?
