briefly State: No issues under new ID law
killer awaits sentence
DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas jury
might not reach a decision on how
to sentence a man who's admitted
to killing his mistress after finding
out she was HIV positive.
Larry Dunn faces up to life in
prison after admitting he killed
Cicely Bolden. But if the jury finds
he committed a sudden crime of
passion, he could get as few as two
The jury sent a note to the judge
saying it was deadlocked after
three days of deliberations. Jurors
are to return Tuesday
The 37-year-old Dunn admitted
in a video confession that he was
cheating on his wife with Bolden in
September 2012, when she said she
had HIV A week later, Dunn re-
turned to her home, had sex with
her a final time, then stabbed her
in the neck.
AUSTIN (AP) — Republican state of-
ficials downplayed the impact of
Texas' new voter ID law on Monday,
pointing to a nearly twofold increase
in recent voter turnout as a response
to critics who say the mandate causes
problems and possibly disenfranchise-
Democrats and opponents of the
disputed photo identification measure
— which was delayed a year until the
U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law
this summer — continued to insist the
potential for turned-away and con-
fused voters was a real possibility in
Texas residents will vote on nine
proposed amendments to the Texas
Constitution, and headlining the bal-
lot is a drought-fighting plan that
would take $2 billion from the state's
Rainy Day Fund to accelerate new
water projects statewide.
Republican Attorney General Greg
Abbott said opponents of the voter ID
law had "run out of claims" about al-
"I haven't ever seen anything that
was overhyped as much as some parti-
san efforts to overhype concerns about
this, when in reality, there has been no
problems whatsoever," Abbott said.
Most of the attention surrounding
the law's rollout is about affidavits
some voters are being required to sign
at polling places, offered when there's
even the slightest variation between a
name on an official ID and how it ap-
pears on voter rolls.
Abbott, who is running to replace
Gov. Rick Perry in 2014 and defended
in court the voter law passed by the Re-
publican-controlled Legislature in
2011, said he signed an affidavit when
he voted Thursday and dismissed it as
no big deal.
Early voting has nearly doubled
from 2011, the last off-year elections in
Texas, according to state officials.
More than 317,000 people have already
voted in the state's 15 largest counties,
up from 168,000 two years ago, Secre-
tary of State John Steen said.
Steen said the attention surround-
ing the rollout of the ID law might be
driving more voters to the polls.
Democrats have worried that some
voters will be entirely unable to vote.
The latest big name to join that chorus
is former U.S. House Speaker Jim
Wright, who said this weekend he was
denied a state ID card. Wright, 90, said
an expired driver's license and a uni-
versity faculty ID card were not
enough to get a state ID from the Texas
Department of Public Safety.
By Monday, Wright said the prob-
lem was resolved but expressed con-
cern about the "nuisance." He also
questioned the conservative presump-
tion that voters are trying to defraud
"It's unfortunate ... that we look for
ways to disqualify people," Wright
