Abbott has gained a lot of attention for his warning to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) about keeping election monitors out of Texas. Abbott is very adamant about his opposition, and said it was “offensive” to think that they can monitor our election and tell us what to do, when it’s apparent that Europe cannot take care of themselves.

“We’re not dealing with a situation where some people kind of wanted to come over here and just observe the elections in Texas and see how we do things. Instead, this European international group has been meeting with organizations that have ties to ACORN, ties to groups that have been involved in voter fraud efforts. And so, I don’t think it’s appropriate for voter fraud organizations to tie up the European organization and get them to come over here and monitor our elections.”

Abbott went on to say that the group was supposed to be “non-partisan.” However, he claims the group was only monitoring the swing states and states that have a voter ID law, like Texas. He also said that the OSCE should be focused more on preventing voter fraud, instead of trying to hamper voter integrity measures.

Abbot is encouraging all voters to contact their local district attorney’s office or his office if they see any suspicious activity at the voting locations.
