Still Hypocritical

Vote Dry… cuz your Congressman was going to wet his whistle anyway… serf. From The Atlantic:

The State of Texas executed convicted cop killer and Mexican citizen Edgar Tamayo Arias last night after one final denial of stay by the U.S. Supreme Court. Arias was part of a group of (then) 51 Mexican citizens on Texas death row who appealed their convictions claiming (technically rightly, but not [...]
