Good riddance to bad garbage.

Acting Texas Secretary of State David Whitley (R) resigned on Monday after his office wrongly questioned the U.S. citizenship of nearly 100,000 people, The Houston Chronicle reported.

The embattled official who oversaw the state’s elections penned a resignation letter to Gov. Greg Abbott (R), who nominated him for the job in December.

“Working alongside the employees in the secretary of state’s office, county election officials, and representatives of our #1 trading partner, Mexico, has been my distinct honor and privilege,” Whitley wrote in the letter obtained by the newspaper. “And to have your trust in doing so goes beyond what I ever dreamed of as a kid growing up in a small South Texas community.”

Whitley was facing a Monday deadline to be confirmed by the Texas Senate or lose his job. The letter was sent shortly before the state Senate adjourned until 2021, the Chronicle reported.

Whitley’s office early this year launched a botched review of the state’s voter rolls, saying officials had discovered as many as 95,000 noncitizens registered to vote and sending lists of names to county elections officials for review and purge.

Within days, the secretary of state’s office backtracked on the announcement after discovering that its original list was not properly vetted and included thousands of citizens.

Man, this guy fucked up hard!

 To falsely identify 100,000 people as having illegally voted is a screw up so bad that it almost deserves a trophy. 

Well, he didn’t get a trophy but he did get this back in January.

You can be almost certain that somebody has committed a FUBAR when Trump rushes out to congratulate them or retweet their stupidity.

      “The Jesus Fellowship Church, an evangelical church based in the United Kingdom that was at one time known as the “Jesus Army,” has shut down amid hundreds of allegations of child sex abuse dating back decades.

      The BBC reports that a wide-ranging criminal investigation has resulted in six men who belonged to the church being found guilty of sexually assaulting 11 different victims between the 1970s and 1990s. In total, police in the city of Northamptonshire say they’ve received over 200 different sexual assault complaints involving members of the church, and officials say they’re continuing to investigate these allegations.

      In shutting down, the church issued an apology to the people who have been victimized by its members while also stating that it was “appalled” by the revelations.

      Solicitor David Greenwood, who is representing two women who claim to have been abused during their time in the church, tells the BBC that the entire organization is more or less a cult that left children vulnerable to sexual assault.
      “I would classify it as a cult in as much as children were [taught] to be completely obedient to the rules made up by its sole leader,” said Greenwood, who also described the Jesus Army as a “totalitarian regime.””

    How is Mr. Whitley “an embattled official”? He is the one who went after all those people who could legitimately vote in Texas. They are his “embattled” victims. Frankly, in a better world, he should be headed for indictment, trial and then prison.
