Well, well, well. Texas Monthly has produced a list of prominent Texans nearly tripped up by that state's new voter ID law.

Like most other states that passed these tougher voter ID laws, supporters in Texas pledged, without providing any evidence, that rampant voter fraud was taking place. 

Included in the magazine's list is a prominent Democratic state senator, the current attorney general, a district court judge and a former speaker of the U.S. House. Not exactly the wrongdoers proponents said the law would catch.

We'll be watching when Alabama's unnecessarily tougher voter ID law commences in 2014.
