  •  But they're not telling the courts to do anything (none)
    They're telling the DAs that they cannot proceed, so it has nothing to do with restricting the courts directly.

    The question is can the state legislature essentially tell DAs what cases they can and cannot prosecute on a case-by-case basis?

    Phil Bredesen for ME...oh wait I'll only be old enough to run for Congress.

      I'm not a law person either, so I would have made the same indistinction.  But what I understood her to be saying, and it's one of my constant, jaw-dropper reactions these last few years, is how incredible it is that the party that touts itself as the defenders of "freedom" and as "patriots" is-- at least in Texas-- full-time in the business of restricting the freedom of American democratic institutions.
