As reported in the Hill:
Texas authorities have threatened to arrest international election observers, prompting a furious response from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.
So far, the Texans are only threatening the international observers with arrest. No mention of anyone being horsewhipped. Still, a the inevitable spokesperson is, inevitably, outraged:
“The threat of criminal sanctions against [international] observers is unacceptable,” Janez Lenarčič, the Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, said in a statement. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”
Some friendly advice to Janez Lenarčič: Don't push it, partner. We're talking about Texas, here.
