(TargetLiberty.org) – The Texas Nationalist Movement (TEXIT), which supports state independence, has noted that they were planning on taking the GOP to court following the party’s decision to reject a proposal to have secession as one of the options on the 2024 ballot. The movement has noted that Republicans had only a few days to reconsider their previous rejection which would keep succession from being on the primary ballot in March of 2024.
Matt Rinaldi, the chairman of the Republican Party of Texas released an open letter noting that the majority of the over 139,000 signatures that had been delivered to the party’s headquarters were invalid. He further pointed out that the deadline for the submission of the petition was December 10, and that electronic signatures were invalid as they were not allowed.
Rinaldi further pointed out that there were many reasons why the signatures were invalid, including the fact that some signatures were missing key information including the signatory’s county of residence, residence address, date of birth, and even voter registration number. Many of the signatories had also submitted an invalid voter name, while only around 8,300 of the signatures were in the signer’s handwriting, which is a requirement under the Texas election code.
However, TEXIT has responded by noting that the signatures were valid under the Texas Business and Commerce code, which states that electronic signatures can satisfy any law that requires a signature.
TEXIT took to X, formerly known as Twitter, on December 27 to note that Texas Republicans only had one day to reconsider or they would be facing legal action.
