Texas House passes election overhaul bill that adds new restrictions

The Texas House of Representatives passed an election overhaul bill that would add new voting restrictions and penalties to address voter fraud, even though there was no evidence of it in the 2020 election. It’s the latest effort by Republicans across the country to reduce voting access. Beto O’Rourke, a former Democratic Congressman from Texas, joins AC360 to discuss the Texas bill and says young and old people, African Americans and the disabled will likely be most affected if this bill is signed into law. Plus, a federal grand jury has indicted Derek Chauvin and three other former Minneapolis Police officers in connection with the death of George Floyd, alleging the officers violated Floyd’s constitutional rights. Former federal prosecutor Elie Honig breaks down the new charges.
